January’s Game Pass Lineup Takes A Hit Out On The Competition

Take A Hit Out With 9 More Games

Game Pass

If January’s first batch of Game Pass titles didn’t have anything that drew you in, don’t worry. There’s a whole second group on the way with major series like Hitman, Danganronpa, and Rainbow Six on the way. Let’s check them out.

Danganronpa Trigger Happy Havoc Anniversary Edition (Cloud, Console, PC) – Available Now (Our Review)

Nobody Saves The World (Cloud, Console, PC) – Available Now (Our Review)

Death’s Door (Cloud, Console, PC) – January 20th (Our Review)

Hitman Trilogy (Cloud, Console, PC) – January 20th

Pupperazzi (Cloud, Console, PC) – January 20th

Game Pass

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction (Cloud, Console, PC) – January 20th

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege: Deluxe Edition (PC) – January 20th

Windjammers 2 (Cloud, Console, PC) – January 20th

Taiko no Tatsujin: The Drum Master (Console, PC) – January 27th

Game Pass

Those are some heavy hitters. Rainbow Six fans who have been starved for something new to play will find it in when Rainbow Six Extraction launches day one on Game Pass in just a few days. PC fans looking to go back to the last game in the series can jump into Siege the same day. If you prefer to get your hit on, Hitman Trilogy includes all three of the Hitman games released since 2016. That’s a lot of people to kill.

Game Pass

If you’re up for a killing game, Danganronpa Trigger Happy Havoc Anniversary Edition should be right up your alley. This violent modern classic puts a group of high schoolers together in a school with no way out except in a body bag or by being the last one standing. This new version of the game may not have much new content outside of a gallery mode, but this is the first time its been available on Xbox.

Game Pass

Indie fans should enjoy Nobody Saves The World which is an absolutely delightful game which just released today. Check out our review. Or you can jump into Death’s Door, our 14th favorite game of last year. Meanwhile, dog photographers should be excited for Pupperazzi. Or you can see a classic series reborn in Windjammers 2.

Game Pass

On top of all the brand new games, nine more titles are gaining touch controls to be more easily played on a phone. These include Anvil, Archvale, Death’s Door, Exo One, The Forgotten City, Nobody Saves the World, One Piece Pirate Warriors 4, Space Warlord Organ Trading Simulator, Stardew Valley, and Unpacking.

Game Pass

Finally we have to say goodbye to a few more games on the service, though its always nice that this section seems to always stay shorter than the new additions. On January 31st though we’ll say farewell to Cyber Shadow, Nowhere Prophet, Prison Architect, and Xeno Crisis.

He enjoys most genres but is always pulled back to classic RPG's, with his favorite games ever including Suikoden II, Panzer Dragoon Saga, and Phantasy Star IV. Don't worry though, he thinks new games are cool too, with more recent favorites like Hades, Rocket League, and Splatoon 2 stealing hundreds of hours of his life. When he isn't playing games he's often watching classic movies, catching a basketball game, or reading the first twenty pages of a book before getting busy and forgetting about it.
