Xbox Game Pass Getting World War Z, Panzer Dragoon Orta and More This Month


Microsoft continues to pack its Xbox Game Pass on-demand program with extraordinary titles – and October is no exception.

It all starts later this week, on Oct. 3, with the debut of Dishonored 2 coming to the service. This well-received sequel from Arkane Studios and Bethesda is sure to hit the spot for those who love adventure games, with some gadgets and skills available.

But a big, recent title drops on Oct. 10 when Saber Interactive’s World War Z joins the party. The title loosely takes notes from the lore of the film, and the game features co-op interactivity as you mow down armies of zombies using a variety of weapons. Considering there’s not a current-gen version of Left 4 Dead on the market, this is a good alternative.

Speaking of Bethesda, Fallout: New Vegas will also make its debut sometime in October. An exact date did not come with it, but mid-month is more than likely. This classic favorite is sure to be worth the revisit, as it’s part of the Xbox backward compatibility program.

Also on the list is Panzer Dragoon Orta, an Xbox classic that became available on the backward compatible program a while back. This old-school favorite is easily one of the best games in the series, and adding it to Game Pass will rekindle interest in the franchise. Ideal considering that Panzer Dragoon is making a hi-def comeback.

Then there’s Yooka-Laylee. This platformer will debut on the service sometime in October as well, hot on the heels of next week’s sequel, Yooka-Laylee, and the Impossible Lair. Players are sure to get a kick out of this one, filled with retro-themed 3D platforming.

And finally, Felix the Reaper will debut on Xbox Game Pass day and date with its street release. It’s a wacky game that has players dancing their way through puzzles in the role of Death.

Xbox Game Pass currently has a promotion going as well, where fans can sign up for the first month for $1 and get six free months of Spotify Premium. It’s a win-win. You can find out more about that deal here.
