Resident Evil 7 is getting welcomed to the Xbox Game Pass family


Also: Battletoads, Tell Me Why, Wasteland 3, and more

Book a one-way trip down to the bayou where everyone is a monster. It's another Good Get for Xbox Game Pass.

Microsoft has kept us in the loop as to the next couple weeks' worth of additions to Xbox Game Pass, and the list includes 2017's reinvention of Resident Evil. On September 3, Resident Evil 7 joins the Xbox Game Pass lineup.

We gave Resident Evil 7 a perfect 10 when it launched, praising the move to first-person and the always-on-your-toes pacing. The majority of the game feels only Resident Evil in spirit, and it's mostly divorced from all of the series' lore baggage. It's very possible to go into Resident Evil 7 as your first mainline Resident Evil game and you won't feel as though you're missing out. It's just an excellent horror game.

There are a lot of quality games coming to Xbox Game Pass before Resident Evil 7 hits on September 3. In fact, a handful of them show up on their launch day. Here's what's coming to Xbox Game Pass in the next two weeks:

  • Microsoft Flight Simulator -- August 18 (PC)
  • Spiritfarer -- August 18 (PC and Xbox One)
  • Battletoads -- August 20 (PC and Xbox One)
  • Crossing Souls -- August 20 (PC)
  • Darksiders: Genesis -- August 20 (PC)
  • Don't Starve: Giant Edition -- August 20 (PC and Xbox One)
  • New Super Lucky's Tale -- August 21 (PC and Xbox One)
  • Hypnospace Outlaw -- August 27 (PC and Xbox One)
  • Tell Me Why -- August 27 (PC and Xbox One)
  • Double Kick Heroes -- August 28 (PC and Xbox One)
