Xbox Game Pass Kicks Off 2022 With Mass Effect Legendary Edition

It’s January and the start of a new year, so what better way to celebrate than to tear through a new offering of Xbox Game Pass titles. 

Thanks to EA Play’s inclusion, the biggest name in the batch is not one but three titles in Mass Effect Legendary Edition. It’s joined by the acclaimed Outer Wilds, a hidden gem in Olija, the early access debut of co-op shooter The Anacrusis, and more.
