Xbox Game Pass Adding Visage In Time For Halloween Along With 6 Other Games

Just when Xbox Game Pass subscribers thought their plates were full with Scarlet Nexus and Marvel’s Avengers joining the library last week, Microsoft has rolled out the next slate of games hitting the service in October. Here’s what’s coming and what’s leaving this month. 

We already knew that Back 4 Blood was hitting the service the same day it launches on October 12. What we didn’t know was that Halloween fans would get another spooky adventure in Visage. This unnerving horror title, which we scored an 8.75 out of 10, launched almost a year ago and drops players into a haunted house plagued with… actually, we won’t spoil it. You’ll just have to brave its terrors yourself.

Today, subscribers can check out Totally Accurate Battle Simulator, which leaves Xbox Game Preview. The service will be bolstered throughout the month with Destiny 2’s Beyond Light expansion, the Monty Python-esque The Procession to Calvary, Swery’s wacky detective game The Good Life, roguelite card battler Ring of Pain, and base-building RPG The Riftbreaker.
