Xbox Game Pass is Adding 4 Day One Games This Week
Moonglow Bay (Cloud/Console/PC) - October 26 Age of Empires 4 (PC) - October 28 Backbone (Console) - October 28 Bassmaster Fishing 2022 (Cloud/Console/PC) - October 28
Wait now... wasn't Age of Empires IV supposed to be one of those console-exclusives? I thought all along this would be playable on my Series X, but that's not the case now?
Never heard that
Well Xbox Game-studios, the company that want us to play games everywhere, is now making a game not available on Xbox. So the xbox is once again just a Forza, Halo and Gears machine...
A real-time strategy game a... console exclusive? You got the right name there buddy?
No, not exclusive to console, console-exclusive as, available on Xbox but not Playstation.
I mean, there were a number of console only RTS games over the years. The Halo Wars series to name one, up until Gamepass PC, anyway.
It's launching first on PC and they're considering Xbox later.
Like flight sim, it’s being released on PC first but they’ll likely be an Xbox port down the road. There’s plenty of work they’d need to do to follow scale it for consoles. If you’re desperate to play it, it might work through xcloud?
Not desperate, just fooled by Xbox fanboys it seems. I'll play it when it releases.
Being released through the XCloud thing at a later date, until then enjoy Halo Wars or something.
Nah, I'll keep on playing games on the PS5
They never said age of empires would come to xbox consoles. It might come later but I doubt it. PC game pass and console game pass get different games but ultimate subscribers have access to it all. I played halo wars 1 & 2 on console then on PC and rts games just feel better playing on PC like always.
@MrNinosan Not quite sure what tabloid your getting your information from, AOE4 was never touted as any kind of console-exclusive, and it was never given a solid release date for Series X, nor officially announced, but only hinted at. The game is coming to xbox consoles, as and when it is ready. "Well Xbox Game-studios, the company that want us to play games everywhere, is now making a game not available on Xbox." Wait... what?
No, I barely play on the Xbox and it was here I saw in one of the Sony thread, someone saying that we can play AoE4, FH5 and Halo this autumn as exclusives. I mainly play on my PS5, but wouldn't mind spending a few hours with AoE4. I'll wait til it's eventually coming out for Xbox then 👍
Well, in a sense, you can, only you need a PC to play AOE4. "I saw in one of the Sony thread" That could be the issue right there.
You are an idiot, only reason you thought that. why did you think that? No one has ever said thAT...oh wait, you are a idiot.
Thank you for your kind words
So when they announced it they actually announced Coming to PC and "Cloud Gaming". So everyone thought it was coming to console. But they corrected themselves after and said only PC. At least that's what I dug up and understand.
Thought it was timed PC exclusive, lol
Ridiculous value for money this month, especially on PC.
Yep don't forget Forza Horizon 5 and Halo Infinite coming in the next 2 months, I've saved enough money over the past 2 years to cover the gamepass subscription and almost cover the Series X itself. It's the most ridiculous deal in gaming history.
Man Backbone being on gamepass makes it's 25euro cost on Playstation too much to take Echo Generation looks great too
The Forgotten City, Outriders, Into the Pit, Nongunz. Nice get this round. The rest really aren't my thing though.
This is the stand alone DLC American Nightmare. Not the same as the original Alan Wake.
I actually edited this while you were responding, apparently. I was going by a list of games I saw yesterday, which this official one holds a good few more titles. And I know about the Alan Wake/American Nightmare thing, trust me lol. Grabbed both the day they were available. Have both on 360, and now PC, for years.
Recently I just subscritpt to the games pass ultmate due to the cloud gaming... Dude, i love it. Its not just about new things, but all the library..if they just deliver one game that interest me by mouth its nice As a playstation fan boy, i really clap my hands
I seriously question the sanity of PC gamers that have yet to subscribe to game pass.
I like to own my games. 🤷🏻 I don’t support the direction MS a has been going with their model of owning nothing, subscribing to everything. Thanks but no thanks.
Steam, GOG all results in non game ownership. 90% of the PC market is digital and non "ownership"
Lmao bro it’s 2021. As if all games today on pc aren’t digital and licenses only… please
I thought you could still purchase all of their games in store if you wanted to. Weird.
I was hoping Age of Empires would to xbox also. I dont have a PC but had one ages ago and played Age of Empires 2 on it and was a heap of fun. I know these types of games are harder to make on Console but not impossible and I know MS could make it on Console if they really wanted to.
All they need to do is a direct port, and make sure everyone is aware you can only play with mouse and keyboard, and controller is not supported. I'd be down with that.
I think I'll check out Dragon Ball Fighter Z this weekend.
