Seven new games are on their way to Xbox Game Pass this month. As ever, the games will be playable on a mixture of Android cloud streaming, Xbox consoles, and PC, with a couple available on all three.
What games are coming to Xbox Game Pass in February?
No matter what sort of games you're into, you're likely to find something to whet your appetite on Xbox Game Pass this month. The theme this month seems to be friendship, as Xbox Game Pass community lead Megan Spurr describes the lineup as "games about friends, games you can play with your friends, games about deceiving your friends, and more". Let's take a look.
Ghost of a Tale - February 4th (PC)
In this stealthy action-adventure, you play as Tilo, a mouse minstrel who must evade the nefarious Rats in order to find his true love. Unlike many stealth games, this one places an active emphasis on sneaking; there isn't much combat to speak of, so you'd better make sure you're not caught.
Project Winter - February 4th (PC, console, cloud)
Looking for a reason to hate your friends and family this Valentine's Day? Why not try the social deception game Project Winter? It's a game for up to 8 players that revolves around communication, teamwork, and, of course, plenty of filthy backstabbing.
The Falconeer - February 4th (PC, console, cloud)
Combining open-world exploration and aerial dogfighting, The Falconeer is sure to appeal to fans of Panzer Dragoon. You can choose from a number of different origin stories and play through multiple campaigns, so if you like this one, there's plenty of flightin' fightin' fun to be had.
Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age - February 11th (PC, console)
Final Fantasy XII was first announced to be coming to Xbox Game Pass well over a year ago, and it's finally making its debut on the service this year. The Zodiac Age adds widescreen support, a Job System, and more to the 2006 JRPG. This is part of Square Enix's ongoing commitment to bring Final Fantasy titles to Xbox Game Pass. We're still waiting on several including Final Fantasy X and the Final Fantasy XIII sub-series.
Jurassic World Evolution - February 11th (Console, cloud)
Ever wanted to build your very own Jurassic Park? Well, now you can in Jurassic Park Evolution. Create and tend to your park, fill it with dinosaurs, and make sure that you don't have to go through an incident like the ones in the movies (although it's pretty much inevitable, as Jeff Goldblum can attest).
Stealth Inc 2: A Game of Clones - February 11th (Console, cloud)
Stealth Inc 2 is a sneaky puzzle-platformer in which you must guide a clone through a high-tech facility. At every turn, you'll be taunted by an omniscient and sinister voice that seems to want you to fail. The game boasts sneaky platforming action combined with head-scratching puzzle-solving.
Wolfenstein: Youngblood - February 11th (Cloud)
Take up the mantle of BJ Blazkowicz's twin daughters Jess and Soph as they attempt to meet up with and aid the French resistance against the Nazis. Youngblood deviates from the Wolfenstein reboot formula and places an emphasis on co-op action.
