The date for the long-awaited Guilty Gear Strive Xbox Game Pass release has finally been revealed. We can expect Arc System Works' much-loved one-on-one anime fighter to make its way to Microsoft's subscription service on March 7th, and you'll be able to play it on both Xbox consoles and PC.
Technically, Microsoft hasn't actually revealed the March 7th date through any of its social media channels or blogs. However, if you head over to the Xbox app on PC or the Xbox Game Pass home screen on your console, you'll see it there, clear as day: Guilty Gear Strive, scheduled to arrive on March 7th. An official announcement is likely forthcoming.
Guilty Gear Strive's arrival on Xbox Game Pass (as well as on the Xbox ecosystem in general) is pretty exciting. This one-on-one fighter has been critically lauded and loved by fans of the franchise since its launch in 2021, and it's received a slew of updates and DLC characters since then, too, with the latest being Sin Kiske. Full crossplay between all platforms is also on the way, so you should be able to battle your friends no matter where they are soon.
Several games are also on their way out from Xbox Game Pass soon. On March 16th, we'll be saying goodbye to classic narrative games, underrated shooters, and what is arguably one of the greatest games of all time (for me, at least). Here's a list of everything that's headed out on March 16th.
- Kentucky Route Zero
- Paradise Killer
- Goat Simulator
- Zero Escape: The Nonary Games
- Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy
- Young Souls
It's a pretty strong March for Xbox Game Pass so far, with news that Guilty Gear Strive is arriving and the launch of Soulslike Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty to whet Xbox players' appetite for more throughout the month. Here's hoping we get some new Xbox Game Pass announcements soon. Stay tuned to TechRaptor for more on that.
