Final Fantasy coming to Xbox was a crazy idea, once upon a time. As of tomorrow, the latest game in the series will be available as part of Xbox Game Pass, which is even crazier.

It's one of the latest additions to Xbox Game Pass for console and PC, and it'll be available through Game Pass from tomorrow. Joining on the same day is Wolfenstein: Youngblood, which might help ensure more people play the game in co-op rather than solo. Final Fantasy XV's DLC won't be available under the program, but those playing FFXV now will have the reworked version of Chapter 13, so you're still getting the best experience.

Next week, Aussie indie puzzler Death Squared will hit the subscription service. It won't be available for Xbox Game Pass on PC, but those players will get Death's Gambit instead.

Final Fantasy XV Has One Of The Best Endings In The Series

Every Final Fantasy game has had special meaning to me, even the more controversial ones like X-2 and XIII.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood: The Kotaku Review

I am generally suspicious of games that people say are “better with friends,” simply because most things are. Manual labour, paying taxes, repeatedly hitting your thumb with a hammer — these are all things that are “better with friends.” Humans are social creatures, and company can make both miserable and pleasant things a whole lot better. “Better with friends” is rarely a good selling point.

The presence of Youngblood helps Bethesda fans, because at the end of the month Rage will be leaving Xbox Game Pass. Shadow of the Tomb Raider will no longer be available either, with Pumped BMX Pro, Epic Mickey 2 and Jackbox Party Pack 2 also leaving the library.


  • If this shit keeps up, I’ll have no reason to cancel my $5/month sub.

    In the last three months I’ve used the game pass to play to my satisfaction:
    Vambrace: Cold Soul
    Outer Worlds
    Age of Empires 2 HD
    Phoenix Point
    Metro Exodus
    State of Decay 2

    Fifteen bucks for those games. Nowait, ten bucks because the first month was free.
    I was gonna cancel after the first month free, but why the hell would I, now?

    I still need to get through the list of stuff that’s up there, which I want to play but just haven’t had the time to.

    A Plague Tale, Astroneer, Children of Morta, Crackdown 3, Darksiders 3, Faeria, Full Metal Furies, Gears 4-5/Ultimate, Gris, Halo Master Chief Collection, Hellblade, Hollow Knight, Infinifactory, Into the Breach, Neon Chrome, Night Call, Pandemic, ReCore, RIME, Sea of Thieves, Sunset Overdrive, Banner Saga 3, Bards Tale, Thimbleweed Park, Wargroove, Wasteland 3, We Happy Few, West of Loathing, Wolfenstein 2, Zoo Tycoon…

    The value for money proposition is fairly ludicrous at the moment.

    • I agree completely. I ended up grabbing Game Pass on a whim when they had one of their ‘3 months for $3’ promotions and I haven’t looked back..

      I have friends who are on PS4 exclusively who ‘poo poo’ the idea as being just the crap games on there, but honestly there’s so much amazing content that I’ve found my game purchases have gone from 10-20 games a year at least to only 2 games in the last 9 months. I’ve also flipped from being primarily ps4 to xbox one just on the amount of games you can play.. It’s gotten to the point where with Microsoft releasing all first party day 1 and them having so many devs now, I might end up getting a series X day 1 and PS5 in 2021.

      To anyone unsure, you don’t appreciate how great it is until you have it available on your console and you start utilising it so I would recommend even just trying out a $1 for a month trial and see how you go.

      • I’m the same. My Xbox went from being a dust magnet to getting replaced to an X and the primary machine. Game Pass is brilliant. I took advantage of the merging of Gold and Game Pass promo last year so I’m good until September!
        I still buy the occasional game but no where near what i used to, and I play many more. My first Next Gen console will be a Microsoft one for sure.

    • I know everyone is focused on the new consoles coming out, but this kinda stuff, actual service? Done right, this could matter a lot.

      • It’s weird to see people replying talking about consoles, because I’m only using it on the (cheaper, beta) PC version. Still not enough for me to treat my xboneS as anything other than a UHD-player. Especially since my PC is muuuuuuch more powerful than the bone.

        But when the bone2 comes out, and if it’s gonna beat the specs on my PC of the time… well. That would be an interesting cost/benefit analysis!

    • I was riveted by Tomb Raider 2013. Just enthralled; explored every nook and cranny, got every upgrade, found every piece of lore and simply couldn’t put it down. I came to it like… three or four years late to the party and couldn’t believe what I’d missed.

      Then Rise came out and I just sorta… bounced off it. The writing didn’t hook me the way the first one had, and by the time I gave up on trying to force myself to enjoy it, I didn’t even notice when Shadow came out. Haven’t played it. Probably won’t.

      Life’s short. I’m not going to mourn that. There’s so much else I don’t have the time to play AND want to.

        • I will say, I played Tomb Raider 2013 and loved it also, pouring over everything I could find. I did the same to Rise but it was almost too much to appreciate while TR 2013 was more focused. Shadow is very very pretty, but again more is not necessarily better. If you didn’t like Rise, you won’t love Shadow IMHO.

          Then again, I’m one of those that thinks Arkham Asylum with its more focused story and game is more enjoyable than Arkham City

      • I’d say you’re better off not playing Shadow, lot not to like. I was pretty disappointed with it.

        Just can’t help but think that Crystal Dynamics not being the lead developer on it really shows.
