I’ll make no bones about it, I love Xbox Game Pass, Microsoft’s game-based streaming service. Today, the company surprised members with a couple of new games. What’s interesting about this surprise is that both titles are triple A and favorites amongst gamers. In other words, subscribers will love this.

First up is Capcom’s fun Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, a fighting game that pits the most famed Marvel characters (Spider-man, Wolverine, etc.) with Capcom’s most famed characters (Street Fighter and beyond).

This is an all-time classic fighting game that is now available on Xbox Game Pass:


“Marvel and Capcom join forces to deliver the most frenetic 3 vs 3 tag battles ever with Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3. This release comes fully loaded, including all previous DLC, Marvel VS. Capcom: Official Complete Works, and boasting full HD 1080p resolution at 60 frames per second.”

Next is another bona fide blockbuster, Just Cause 3. Launched in 2015, the game is an open world action adventure that is a firm favorite amongst gamers. Perhaps not the triumph that Just Cause 2 was, the third installment in the franchise is still a stellar gaming experience.

“The Mediterranean republic of Medici is suffering under the brutal control of Dictator General Di Ravello. Enter Rico Rodriguez, a man on a mission to destroy the General’s hold on power. With over 400 square miles of complete freedom from sky to seabed and a huge arsenal of weaponry, gadgets and vehicles, prepare to unleash chaos in the most creative and explosive ways you can imagine.”

Game Pass Success

Xbox Game Pass gives users access to a large catalog of Xbox One and Xbox Backward Compatibility games for a subscription. Pricing for the pass is $9.99 per month, which we class as a hot deal.

In October, Microsoft said it will bring Game Pass to PC at some point, after the console roll out was such a success. Indeed, Microsoft CFO Amy Hood called Xbox Game Pass an “early success”:

“But you’re even starting to see it in the early success of Game Pass, our game subscription. This is an opportunity for us to, take not only our content, but others content, package it and make sure that people are able to play the games they love, but do so in a predictive way.”
