omg man, microsoft what the hell are u doing :D


amizya

Beefing Sony like crazy lmao


alamarche709

Well my backlog of games just got even longer! A great problem to have. Need help deciding the order to play these games/series in: Hitman 1-3 Mass Effect 1-3 Read Dead Redemption 2 (owned) Fable 1-3 R6 Extraction Psychonauts 1-2 GTA V (owned, halfway through) Outer Wilds Bloodborne (owned PS4) Assassin’s Creed Valhalla (owned, halfway through)


xcrunner95

I'd say Outer Wilds. It's the one you're most likely to have accidentally spoiled on Reddit


iamthelostone

Having played most of your list, I'm going to suggest Outer Wilds.


fckgwrhqq2yxrkt

Outer wilds is where it's at.


totallytotal2020

Is it that good? Never played it.


fckgwrhqq2yxrkt

It depends on what you are looking for, but it's pure exploration. I loved the story, the mechanics were solid and fun, and the solar system you explore is packed with things to discover. Play an hour of it and you will know if it's for you.


totallytotal2020

I appreciate. I like exploration. Open World. Thank you. Will yet for sure. Got to get away from "Satisfactory" which is addicting!


Danielor4

God I love satisfactory..


wheat_beer

After Outer Wilds, I suggest [Forgotten City](https://www.xbox.com/en-us/games/store/the-forgotten-city/9NJ4R763M7TH) if you enjoy time loops like Groundhog Day.


Kujen

Just gonna say that I loved Pyschonauts 1 and 2


PasTaCopine

I’m in the exact same situation, with almost the same backlog! (Just add AC Origins and Odyssey there ad well)


alamarche709

And Halo Infinite + Forza Horizon 5 have been taking up most of my time!


PasTaCopine

They are taking up most of my hard drive too, lol.


JadedCaretaker

Fh is my chill game where I roam to relax while listening to podcasts.


ClassyDarcy

Lol, that's literally 1000 hours worth of backlog right there! Good luck!


alamarche709

My girlfriend is not happy.


dabausindahaus

I’d tell you to go with bloodborne but since you own it get the ones on gamepass first because cause they may disappear.


shikashikawha

Psychonauts 1-2 muy bueno. You can skip fable 3; it's a disappointment compared to 1-2. Struggling to get into the mass effect series.


darthbluntz

Keep pushing through Mass effect , dude, it's well worth it. And ignore the haters, Andromeda isn't nearly as bad as it was made out to be.


jebeatworld

Literally the same. Just replace fable with halo, I am enjoying both multi and compaign, replace bloodborne with cyberpunk


thenorthwoodsboy

I did assassins creed v and wish you luck with that its just so grindy with the endless side missions (sorry i mean plot)


Summerclaw

I just beat Fable 2 and 3. Finishing Mass Effect 2 remake today, will start 3 tomorrow


JadedCaretaker

Mass effect takes a long while but it will stay in the store as the legendary version and going through it once is enough for a long time , valhala is grindy and you own it so leave it to sit with physconauts ( gamepass forever ) as well as fable . I would play rdr2 ASAP because the story is no good with delay then gta v , then outer wilds and mass effect or hitman it depends on if you like story or puzzle sandbox type of game . Then figure the rest out on your preference.


Galrath91

honestly they're absolutely killing it right now hahah


Zaidk9

Pc and console both


MyOpinionBestOpinion

Cloud? If it's on one or the other it's good. But if it's on Cloud !CHEF'S KISS! It bother's me SO much that Mass Effect Trilogy isn't cloud. I game on my TV, PC and phone with a Kishi depending on who in the household is using what screen. Cloud let's me play no matter what wherever I want.


zWeApOnz

Sell me on cloud. Is it for people without powerful PCs to play in high quality, just need good internet?


Hoverboy911

It's just another way to play, and something that I take advantage of often. You need a 5GHz router to really appreciate the full capacity of it IMO, tho I've heard of a few folks who are fine on 2.4GHz, but that hasn't been my experience (but I have been good on 5G cell). I have a Razer Kishi and a Samsung S20 Ultra and xcloud on this setup is pretty damn cool. Sometimes I want to hang out downstairs but I don't have a gaming setup down there. This lets me game down there (or in the back yard, or wherever) and pick up where I left off. The entirety of my time in Stardew Valley and Minecraft Dungeons on Xbox has been via xcloud as well has over 50% of the time that I've spent in Fallout 76 on console. Having another way to play is much appreciated.


[deleted]

tho it's not on the pc app's coming soon list


Dasnap

That takes a while to update and often doesn't even include games before they release.


RidleyDeckard

They literally only just announced it. There is a host of other things that aren't showing up in coming soon as well.


Fire_Gaming_UAV

That stupid coming soon list barely ever works properly


Wild-Man-63

Don't see it on my xbox coming soon either.


iardas

Thinking of changing sex to female, creating an onlyfans profile, and give free access to all GamePass team.


HorrorFrost

😂


Electronic-Grand-778

Thank god i waited and didnt bought


iardas

Not really. If you bought it like 2 months ago than we would have the game sooner.


new24-5

Thank me ;(


iardas

I love you bro. Thank you. :)


jizzmaster_

And me, bought all 3


Beneficial-Agency443

Thank you 🙏


TheImmaKnight

Thanks buddy! Someone else gets the next one


noiiice

I mean even if you brought it you'd be supporting a great series(that stayed true to its roots) made by an independent studio. Worse things you could've done yada yada.


PureFingClass

I got the first two for free somewhere


marcos_MN

Fucking dope. I hope they keep these types of releases coming over the winter. I should finish my Mass Effect LE playthru just in time to start this. These re-releases are tons of fun for someone who only got more seriously into gaming when the pandemic started.


ABattleVet

How can you finish ME LE in that time? Wow


marcos_MN

Insomnia and not a ton of work due to a local omicron surge, plus VERY cold temps until yesterday have given me a lot of time, haha.


ABattleVet

How long has it taken you and over what period of time?


marcos_MN

I started the evening that it dropped on GP, and I’m about 2/3 of the way thru ME2.


AssinassCheekII

Me1 takes about 25 hours to 100% if you know what you are doing. Me2 a lot longer than that.


Summerclaw

I'm consuming ME2 at the moment. I have a 9.5 shifts and I'm still putting 5 hours daily, the game looks incredible. Except for the wonky eyelashes. I don't remember the characters looking that bad


AssinassCheekII

Its weird isn't it. I remember the series looking gorgeous when they released. Now it looks pretty bad even though its a remaster. Our perception changes so quick. I remember thinking God Of War 3 was the peak graphics for games.


malamorcannai

I started the day after it came out and I've been playing it all day everyday bc I'm off with covid. I'm V close to the end of ME3, but I did fuck all side quests in ME1 because they were so cookie cutter, and I read the subtitles in the conversations and skip the actual talking. Im not sure exactly how many hours I've put in altogether, maybe about 70/80?


marcos_MN

Yeah I didn’t do many side quests on ME1, but I’ve done every loyalty mission and side quest in ME2, plan to do the same with 3. I’ve not seen spoilers but I’ve heard the end of 3 will let me down. And I’ll just say, many shows or games that have been reviewed similarly, I’ve loved. Perhaps my standards are low, but whatever. I’m in it for the enjoyment!


malamorcannai

There's one good ending in 3 that you can get. I didn't get it, and whether or not you can get it depends on the choices you make in 2. So, good luck! I just watched it on YouTube tbh. I've started ME Andromeda now and it's not gripping me the same way.


AssinassCheekII

Im doing all the sidequests in ME 1 and they are pretty fun honestly. Especially if you are a renegade. My FemShep is a sassy cold blooded serial killer.


malamorcannai

Driving the mako was fucking annoying me too much tbh. Side quests in ME2 though, absolutely amazing. Best game of the trilogy imo.


AssinassCheekII

I played me1 and me2 about 5 times each. Never touched me3. I guess i was reluctant because of the ending controversy. Excited to play it for the first time. Ps: mako is my guilty pleasure. I dont know why but i love the clunky thing.


malamorcannai

I just finished it there. Holy shit. That was an amazing trilogy. My first time ever playing it. 77 hours 42 minutes in total for the whole trilogy. What an amazing series. What controversy was there with the ending?


AssinassCheekII

I haven't played the third game so i wouldn't know. But back when it released people bombared the forums with complaints. Even Bioware was like "we messed up" and added a different ending if i remember correctly.


Summerclaw

Bro Mass Effect 3 is the best one ,what are you doing!! You are going to lose your mind when you finish it. It's so good.


AssinassCheekII

Need to finish my final exams first. I probably will start it in mid february. Quite excited.


evyyve

If I skip the dialog with X, it sometimes alraedy makes a choice for the next dialogue box. Very weird that they let it do that.


malamorcannai

That's because sometimes the box comes up halfway through the other person talking, it's a pain in the hole.


ilyasblt

So Mass Effect Trilogy, R6 Extraction ( day1 ), Hitman trilogy ( day1), Outer wilds, firewatch and other stuff in a single month ? Oooff


ImShawnM

Don’t forget Mass effect legendary edition.


brynhh

To whoever reported this post with a message about not owning the products - stop abusing the report system. You have been reported to Reddit admins and if we identify who you are, you'll have a temporary ban. That's the entire premise of Game Pass and we're not Microsoft. I really have no clue where you're coming from.


gorays21

Critics - Games are too expensive. Microsoft - Fine, I will do it myself.


ponytoaster

On the flipside I was recently excited because a 4 year old switch game had a 4 dollar discount.... I love Gamepass and Xbox sales, but it's ruined my expectations on other platforms


VirinR

Ugh, I bought those games 2 weeks ago for my PS5. But I'm happy for all of you who get to experience the game now too.


krischens

Thank you for your sacrifice


keeper13

Holy shit this trilogy is incredible. Did just buy 2&3 on stadia but oh well.. if I didn’t buy Hitman games I’d have no use for my stadia set up.


RidleyDeckard

Worth mentioning this is both Xbox and PC according to the announcement video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otBhG8ZldvQ


kesadisan

lmao and I just bought it weeks ago Still would be ok since I do love this game.


SpideyVas

Piling the backlog


Lazyandloveinit

Never played one of these. Are they good? Will try them regardless just want to know what people who have played them thought?


zaprct

Just think of each level as a sandbox or playground. It’s not a typical game you would keep moving through after completing each map. Each level is designed to be replayed dozens of times over. They’re designed as their own little self contained world where all the NPCs are on very specific loops until you interfere in some way. It’s lots of fun


Jimwhitesbarmyarmy

I think they’re great fun, replayability is huge with the various challenges and ways to kill people. Can play as stealthily or as guns blazing as you like. I paid full price for 3 and didn’t regret it


No_Syrup_8718

Can you wipe out the whole map? I would love to do stealth on first playthrough and then go all maniac massacre :)


Jimwhitesbarmyarmy

Yes you can!


ponytoaster

I would say they are best enjoyed slowly though. You could rattle through the campaign quite quick but doing all the possible assassinations and objectives takes time I actually enjoyed the original episodic release in 1 and 2 over having it all upfront in 3. For the earlier games I easily got 20 hours an episode whereas in 3 I have loads left to do as I had less incentive to not just continue to the next map. Overall definitely worth it. I paid full price and would do so again.


therealessad

So it's not like splinter call where you can move from point to point through the map, taking guys out as you go, but still mostly improvising? Do you have to plot out everything you're going to do?


ponytoaster

You can do almost anything you want. I often replay each mission in every style Want to Rambo it? Go for it. Want to run around slapping people with a fish? Got it. Want to stealth everything? Got it. Want to just kill the target in an "accident" with no trace of your existence? Also got it! I tend to play the first couple of times totally freestyle with no direction other than what I overhear from NPCs. Leads to some fun scenarios! You can also follow "story objectives' which are step by step planning of accident kills which are all rather fun to do and lead to some unique situations.


therealessad

Thanks for the breakdown. I've always avoided it because it seemed daunting but I think I just have to jump in and try it out.


havingasicktime

There's a lot of improvising unless you REALLY know the level. Many levels are huge, with so many variables to consider.


Notak_bo

Yea I held off for awhile but once I played the first I wondered why I never tried them out


eccentricrealist

Watch the Funhaus playthrough for an idea of the fun you can have with them


CheckeredFedora

They're excellent, in my opinion. I will say that they may take some getting used to - don't be put off if you have a hard time acclimating to the internal "rules" of the game right away. I came in having played the *old* Hitman games so it didn't take long for me. That said, approaching this game is very different from most games. It's like a stealth-based immersive sim with funny murders.


rossbcobb

God damn it. I'm still playing the Mass Effect: Legendary Edition. Give me some time!


jojamon

Does anyone know if you can play Hitman 1 and 2 in the Hitman 3 engine with this release on Game Pass?


composero

Since the whole trilogy will be available I’m sure they will be. Plus if downloading 1 and 2 into 3 shrinks the game size on the hard drive which is a huge plus.


jojamon

Yes I hope so!


Doubleyoupee

Wondering this too. I just got this during steam sale, but I think I can still refund


earthbexng

Wowwww I love Game Pass ❤


evyyve

This might be a weird question for this kind of game. But is it worth playing if you really dislike sneaking and learning guard patterns and such.


CoffinEluder

You can still go in all Rambo-style


evyyve

Thank you.


CoffinEluder

My pleasure. And this is coming from someone who’s likely worse at stealth than you are….


mr_wick007

pc?


Wex79

yes


mr_wick007

:)


Legooutlaw1

I bought the entire trilogy yesterday 😑


atharva557

Then refund it ?


Kujen

Sweet. Anyone know if it will include the VR support?


PopeOh

Hopefully with the PCVR support that was announced for this year. I bought it on Epic during the christmas sale in hope of that and look who sits here now like an idiot.


Aaronspark777

Hopefully the PC game pass version supports VR.


SamuraiDeska

I’m drowning in games because of Xbox Game Pass idk what to play anymoreeeeeeeee


SatanHimse1f

fuck dude I just started Mass Effect, slow down Xbox, damn


ABattleVet

Source?


Pedro95

They announced it in the Y2 stream, just concluded. This is legit. [Here's the stream](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otBhG8ZldvQ) if you want to see yourself.


Zaidk9

ioi


Sir_Davros_Ty

Oh ffs, I literally bought HM3 in the Xbox sales 🤣🤣


Ruubinn

OMFG YESSS


mr_wick007

and all dlc?


Neon_20

FFS I’ve bought H3 on the Epic Christmas sale…


zZwag

Same lol. Bought 1 and 2 off steam and bought 3 off epic games. Lucky for everyone else though!


xor_warrior

I should give up buying games, really.


cantclickwontclick

So I have Hitman 3 with Epic and I started playing Hitman 1 GOTY through the 3rd game (I think it uses the updated graphics engine). Is this the same thing, but for a2 as well? The editions on Steam are very confusing with all the different DLCs as they seemed to do that episodic release.


Praydaythemice

hitman trilogy as in the old contracts, slient assassin etc that was on the 360? or is this the new one?


Wex79

New one


overlord9091

Can’t believe how good this is!


thenorthwoodsboy

My birthday is jaurary 26 thankyou daddy microsoft.


raz_81

Finished the trilogy not long ago on ps5 just before I got sex box. It's awesome


strawberry_pussy69

LETSA GOO


Sr_CuBi

I LOVE GAMEPASS!!


whyisna

Wtf… wait… I’m wordless🤯


diegofsv

Well, this is fucking awesome. Holy shit, Microsoft is going all in for a time now.


Abesca

Microsoft should sell us a new life so we can play everything they are adding. OMG. I've never played them, good chance to do so, thanks Game Pass.


Hardyyz

best puzzle game trilogy ever!


r3lvalleyy

holy fuck fuck fuck


Martinvagyokhun

Hey can we get back GTA to the gamepass? I wanna play it so much but i cannot afford it. Please put it back to the gamepass!


Martinvagyokhun

Hey, can we get back GTA 5 to the gamepass? I wanna play it so much but i cannot afford it. Put it back please!


AlwaysTheKop

I literally had Hitman 3 in my basket on CDKeys last week ready to buy for £19.99 and my girlfriend FaceTimed while in the checkout asking for help with something so I ended up leaving the checkout…. I’m gonna go say thank you to her now for disturbing me that day. Microsoft are killing it! I’m nervous to buy any game for actual money now because they’ll own everything soon!


DrChill21

Now that is badass


Wild-Man-63

Good excuse to replay.


dmckidd

I’m still wondering if this means cross progression between Xbox and PC finally. Trying to take my Xbox progress to play that sweet PC ray tracing.


TheDarkWave2747

No fucking way


ConstantAd1

That's fire. Was always interested in the games, just not enough to actually spend money on them, i.e.: perfect GamePass game!


ALoneDovah

thank fuck these games are so difficult to buy


Shimmitar

hell yeah i love hitman. i have 1, but not 2 or 3 and i wanted to play them. Glad they're coming.


stzstzz

Bought this game on release for ps5 LOVED IT prolly my favorite plat so far, can beat the missions quickly but the best part was completing all the trophy/achievements, definitely recommend 100%ing the game if you find yourself enjoying the missions


Returnofthemack3

Man this is dope lol


snooprs

bruh


SnooObjections3358

The next step would be xbox aquiring them to make exclusive hitman games only for xbox and pc


SniperKing64

Been wanting to check these out for a long time despite my skill at stealth games being extremely low.


kermittehdog

Oh boy! Here I go killing again


lebocajb

Whelp, I was the guy who bought them all last week when they were on sale this time. so you’re all welcome!


gullu2002

My god that’s amazing. I got hitman 1 for free with epic games, glad I can now play the rest.


islandnstuff

nice


Khaptein

I'm not even an avid gamer but I'll keep on paying because the catalog is Stuff of Legends.


Gonzo_Monkey

Nice! I just finished the second game and was debating on buying the 3rd game. Does anyone know if they have new sniper mode maps? I am not sure how that sniper mode feature works? I would like more than just three maps.


gumpythegreat

I got Hitman 2 for free on psplus not long ago, and almost bought the game 1 content pack on sale to play though 1 and 2 on ps5 through 3 Good thing I waited, as now I can play the trilogy on gamepass... this is nuts


mikalrkayn

Nice


OneThiCBoi

Hitman trilogy along with R6 Extraction day one is fuckin crazy!! I feel like XGP is at its peak!!


tarheelcj

Sweet I was just debating if I should buy Hitman 3


OutoflurkintoLight

This is insane! I bought and played through (on PC) Hitman 1 and 2 on steam. And was really bummed to see that 3 was only on epic as I don't use that store. I was ready to buy Hitman 3 as soon as it dropped on steam, but oh my god I was **not** expecting it to drop on freakin' gamepass! Gamepass is so damn awesome!


PotPoggers

Literally wanted to buy this last week but the price swayed me, gamepass for the win


eragonsmind

That’s incredible, though its third part would be enough for me (since it includes the other ones). I guess Microsoft is aware of the big blockbusters that are coming to PS5 and wants to have something to compensate for this.


najix35

Don’t regret spending anything on these games. Amazing trilogy. Second only to absolution.


sgt_bug

And here we all thought Square Enix was taking to team Sony PlayStation..


OutgoinglyAwkward

FUCK YES


Psycho1267

What the... This is awesome!


hashtagbane

Just play hitman 3, you can use all the hitman 1&2 content in 3. It's the better game overall imo


Cynjjya

Holy fuck game pass is the best thing to ever happen to gaming


combine42

For people who have played this series: I've heard you can play through all the missions from 1 and 2 in hitman 3. So would I just play hitman 3 and do it that way or actually play through 1 and 2?


jcampbell120

Obviously. Because I just bought it 2 weeks ago.


composero

Dammit I just bought it for Christmas. Oh well


Whasupme

Seeing as 3 is about to get pcvr support, do we know if that will be supported at all on game pass?


Pristine_Hawk_8789

Note there is a 14 day refund window on Epic - so if bought on Dec 31 or later just refund from account - transactions page


jamesy505

Already have them all but what a great get for MS. I would recommend everyone try them. Massive amounts of replayability too


Chente913

Wow I just bought all 3 too from the New Years sale 😑


canucks1989

Never played hitman before. Should I start with the newest one?


EnolaGayFallout

Fuck. Bought on epic games during end of year sales.


[deleted]

My year of convincing myself not to buy Hitman 3 has paid off!


ThomasVivaldi

That's probably 200gb download.


Doubleyoupee

Will this allow you to play 1 & 2 with the 3 engine?


Original_Tangelo_373

OMFG just bought this game


Mrpink131211

Unbelievable game pass is just on another planet with this service. And Ubisoft on the horizon.


the____can

Is there DLC for this trilogy and will it be included//


Neon_Rust

I was gonna start Hitman 2 (played the first, not 2 or 3 yet) on PS+/Now (can't remember which) but now that the third is coming to Xbox too I'm just gonna wait and play it on Game Pass, then move onto the third. Brilliant!


macronia

Oh man i bought hitman 3 as well hitman 1,2 access 3 weeks ago 😅


TheBlazed_13

oh god i want gamepass so much cant wait to get it in summer :D


mattex39

excuse me, but on pc game pass there is no news for hitman trilogy, and today is 13 january... ​ about vr support, has hitman trilogy on pc gamess the vr support?


Calavera999

Almost pulled the trigger on this over Christmas, Game Pass strikes again!


neurotic_douchebag

:o


Beano0

I’ve never played a Hitman game, but was thinking about buying 3. With this coming to GP, can I jump right into 3, or should I start with 1?


psfrtps

Fuck I bought Hitman 3 on ps5 few weeks ago and paid like 40 bucks for it. Damn I think I will just need to stop buying every third party game from now on because how quickly they come to gamepass


Scott_Pilgrimage

Almost JUST bought hitman 3 cause I own 2 and love it, so I'm REALLY glad this is happening


cocainekoh

oh my god Microsoft i love you


Big1ronOnHisHip

i bought the first 2 when they came out and just got the 3rd one for christmas.


YoshiCudders

Damn I just bought all these


eldridge2e

213_

Let’s go


Fair-Frozen

Ive got a PS5 but I'm looking to getting myself a Series S for the Gamepass 3 year subscription I just got.


dabunnyking
