The Game Pass becomes another series of new games play, impressing me yet again despite the fact that I probably won’t touch most of them. (It’s like that with subscription services, folks.) Mass Effect Legendary Edition and Embr are two out of eight games joining PC Game Pass this month, opening the door to some of the service’s oldest games.
the Mass Effect Legendary Edition comes to Game Pass as part of the service’s EA Play agreement. EA Play lets you select games from a library of beloved Electronic Arts titles, including The sims and Battlefield. The Legendary Edition will come with the base game, single player content, and all 40+ DLCs of the Mass Effect franchise. This includes “Weapons, Armor and Promo Packs – Remastered and Optimized for 4K HD”.
Pay to play
Other notable games coming to Game Pass are Embr and Outdoor savages. Embr is a cooperative firefighting game where you will face daily challenges to extinguish flames, save people and climb the ranks of the firefighting world. Outdoor savages lets you “explore for your curiosity” as you venture into a solar system filled with tons of secrets and mysteries.
Other games available this month are Spelunky 2, The Anacrusis, The Pedestrian, Olija, and Gorogoa. Legendary Mass Effect Editing, Embr, Spelunky 2, and The Anacrouse will be playable at a later date, while the rest of the games are playable today. Game Pass also offers perks for games like Apex Legends and Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis.
Finally, Desperados III, Ghost of a Tale, Kingdom Hearts III, Mount & Blade: Warband, Pandemic, and Yiik: a postmodern RPG exit Game Pass on January 15th. You can save 20% when purchasing these games using the member’s only discount if you haven’t had a chance to play them, or you can hurry up and finish the games today.
