Starfield is the obvious big “get” for Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass program this month, and it’ll be arriving on September 6 on the service for cloud, PC, and Xbox Series X/S. Before that though you’ll be treated to Gris – a lovely little puzzle platformer that’s a fantastic rainy-day weekend game. After that, we’re getting Solar Ash on September 14, as well as Lies of P on September 19. Microsoft also reminds folks that Age of Empires IV: Anniversary Edition recently hit the service.
In all, it’s a pretty great month for Xbox Game Pass. There’s some indie stuff to hit as counterprogramming if you aren’t into Bethesda games, and Lies of P has made a decent name for itself over the past few months as an enticing option for “soulslike” fans. Hey, I’m not the one saying it; that’s a direct quote from Microsoft!
Interestingly, Minecraft fans are getting something too: “Game Pass Ultimate members can get access to a 3-month subscription to Minecraft Realms Plus! Share your world, build with friends, and play across all of your devices with your own personal server. This Perk requires a payment instrument to redeem. Terms apply.”
