Coming Soon to Xbox Game Pass: Cloud Gaming, Destiny 2, Night in the Woods, Company of Heroes 2, and More

You might have noticed a couple extra words in the title of this post: Cloud Gaming! Today, we announced the initial launch line-up of more than 100 games that Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members can play on Android mobile phones and tablets from the cloud (Beta) in 22 countries starting September 15. And did we mention there is no additional cost? So keep an eye on our Twitter and Instagram, where we’ll let you know all the games coming soon to play on PC, console, and Android mobile devices!  

And if you didn’t catch the rest of our news from last week, may I recommend a little bit of light reading for you?

Coming Soon

Company of Heroes 2 (PC) – September 17
The follow-up to the highest rated RTS of all time, Company of Heroes 2 is an acclaimed blend of strategy and tactics will test players’ knowledge of real-world combat. Now with five armies included to play with in multiplayer and two single-player campaigns. Cover, line of sight, armor, and fully destructible environments all must be considered to lead your troops to victory

Destiny 2: Shadowkeep & Forsaken (Android & Console) – September 22
Dive into the world of Destiny 2 to experience responsive first-person shooter combat filled with stylish finishers and devastating Super abilities. Create your Guardian and explore the mysteries of the solar system while collecting powerful gear to customize your look and playstyle. Brave challenging co-op missions, compete with other Guardians in a variety of PvP modes, and experience a cinematic sci-fi story throughout both the Forsaken and Shadowkeep expansions. You decide your legend.

Halo 3: ODST (Android & PC) – September 22
Play as an Orbital Drop Shock Trooper (ODST) and explore the war-ravaged streets of New Mombasa as you attempt to piece together the Covenant’s motivations for invading the city. As an ODST, you don’t have the firepower or the overshields to go head-to-head with Elites, Brutes, and Hunters – so use stealth and hit-and-run tactics to eliminate threats and sneak behind enemy lines.

That’s not all though, as ODST Firefight is joining The Master Chief Collection on console and PC for the first time, with online matchmaking, dedicated servers, and new custom game modes! Grab some friends and hop into the fan-favorite mode as you take out wave after wave of Covenant invaders across 10 legacy maps.

Night in the Woods (Android, Console, PC) ID@Xbox – September 24
Join college dropout Mae Borowski as she returns home to the crumbling former mining town of Possum Springs, seeking to resume her aimless former life and reconnect with the friends she left behind. But things aren’t the same. Home seems different now and her friends have grown and changed. Leaves are falling and the wind is growing colder. Strange things are happening as the light fades.

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 (Android & Console) ID@Xbox – September 24
Sequel to the critically acclaimed Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide. Fight together with your friends against the forces of Chaos and Skaven in this epic 4-player co-op game set in the Warhammer Fantasy Battles world. Vermintide 2 expands the intense first-person combat with a brand-new enemy faction, 15 new career paths, talent trees, new weapons, an improved loot system, and more.

Xbox Game Pass for PC (Beta)

Last week we announced that Xbox Game Pass for PC and the Xbox App will become exit beta on September 17. We’ve built experiences with the help of the PC gaming community and PC game developers and can’t wait to keep that momentum going. We’ll continue to address your feedback and keep the library fresh – especially with EA Play coming this holiday.

We’re retiring the introductory Xbox Game Pass for PC price on the 17th, but if you’re already a member, you’ll pay the same rate through the next billing cycle (look out for a notification on September 17 with more detail). After that, Xbox Game Pass for PC will be available for $9.99 a month. If you haven’t tried Xbox Game Pass for PC yet, now is your moment! You can try your first month for $1.

Not on October 1 at least. Might get added in the second half of the month though.

If not, I guess MS will add it together with the other bunch of Bethesda games. The Bethesda acquisition is also not fully completed which might be the reason that not all of their games are on Game Pass at the moment.
