What remains of our spare time.
Xbox’s streaming service, the Game Pass, is welcoming another five games before the month’s end and there are a few titles in there that are well worth your time.
First up is the tantalising What Remains of Edith Finch, a game that you can finish in an afternoon but thanks to its sublime design and soul-punching plot, will stick with you for a lot longer. Edith Finch is joined by Dontnod’s vampiric adventure, Vampyr, a game that we reviewed a while back. It’s well worth a go, and a lot of the issues we had with it were addressed in later updates, meaning that it’s a lot more stable and enjoyable now. What Remains of Edith Finch will be available to download tomorrow (March 21), while you’ll have to wait until March 28 to get Vampyr.
Arriving alongside Edith Finch is Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, the 2016 sequel that seemingly spel the end for the series after sales didn’t quite meet expectations. Mankind Divided takes you to a dystopian Prague where Adam Jensen can get his fill of pissing off guards by using
March will also see the lacklustre Walking Dead: Michonne arrive on March 28 before March 29 sees Operencia: The Stolen Sun arrive on the Game Pass the day the game releases. Operencia harkens back to the classic age of RPGs, with the game’s creative director, Chris Baker, explaining that a lot of the Zen Studio “development team grew up on classic RPG series like Wizardry, The Bard’s Tale, and Eye of the Beholder–and we’re just not seeing many games like those these days, especially on console. So not only would creating a CRPG for Xbox One be something we want to play–it would also fill a void.” (Via Videogamer).
