Xbox has announced that Gotham Knights’ Game Pass debut will occur on October 3, and those of you who don’t want to pay for it can check out the game after its mediocre critical response. Party Animals, Cocoon, and PayDay 3 also join the Xbox Game Pass lineup over the next few weeks.
Xbox Game Pass will be adding five new games to its service, which include:
- Party Animals (September 20)
- PayDay 3 (September 21)
- Cocoon (September 29)
- Gotham Knights (October 3)
- The Lamplighters League (October 3)
Gotham Knights will be available to all Xbox Game Pass subscribers as it launches for the service on Xbox Series X|S, PC, and cloud. Each of these games will be available on the Cloud, except Cocoon.
Perhaps Gotham Knights will find an audience within the Xbox Game Pass community. The current Steam player base at the time of writing is at 199, according to SteamCharts, so this news could give a good boost to WB Games’ multiplayer title.
Destructoid gave Gotham Knights a mediocre 5/10 review score. “After playing Gotham Knights, I couldn’t shake the feeling that a lot of it had the air of an Arkham-verse fan game,” says our review. “While there is something there, you can almost reach out and touch the design-by-committee elements and witness the souls of some of the developers leaving their bodies.”
Despite a slew of awesome games coming to Xbox Game Pass, there are plenty that are leaving the service on September 30, says Xbox Wire. They include:
- Beacon Pines
- Despot’s Game
- Last Call BBS
- Weird West
