There are some standouts from the Xbox Game Pass Core list. Golf With Your Friends is a thrilling multiplayer mini-golf game that’s a lot of fun with…well…your friends. The courses feature all sorts of twists and turns along the way to catch you off guard. I’ve laughed so many times because of seeing my pals’ failures.
If you want another indie hit to play, Celeste is one of my favorite games, period. It has a gorgeous pixel art style matched with wonderful, atmospheric music from Lena Raine. The engrossing story it tells, which goes hand-in-hand with the difficult platforming truly hooked me in. It says you can conquer your struggles and triumph.
Some first-party Xbox games are part of the Xbox Game Pass Core lineup as well. It has Halo 5: Guardians, Psychonauts 2, and Gears 5 Game of the Year Edition just to name a few.
Xbox Game Pass Core costs $9.99 per month or $59.99 per year. It includes all of the games above and online multiplayer access.
