Xbox Game Pass never fails to surprise me in any given month. You could see sports games sidling up with 80 hour JRPGs, with a sprinkle of fighting games and open world adventures. This month is another eclectic mix that showcases how variety truly is the spice of life.

Revealed by Microsoft by way of their Xbox blog, we’re getting some really interesting choices to peruse this month, following the superstar addition of Hi-Fi RushMadden NFL 23 and SD Gundam Battle Alliance (what a pairing!) are coming on February 9, followed by Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord, Cities: Skylines Remastered, and Shadow Warrior 3: Definitive Edition on February 14, 15, and 16 respectively. Then Atomic Heart crashes onto the service as a new addition on February 21.

A few things are leaving on February 15 too, most notably CrossfireX, which is shutting down entirely in May.
