This year again, the Xbox Game Pass should delight subscribers. If the list of the first additions of January 2023 is still waiting, we know that this month will be marked by the arrival of day one releases such as two Persona games or even Monster Hunter Rise. Pending official communication, Microsoft has just added a surprise game to its service.
The first Xbox Game Pass game of January 2023 is available
A great year is looming for Xbox Game Pass. The 2023 vintage has some fine additions in store, including Starfield and Redfall, the publisher’s next two big house exclusives. In the meantime, subscribers will be able to try a whole host of other games, including availability from the day of their release, such as older but qualitative titles, for the most part. Microsoft is slow to reveal the January 2023 games slate, but a surprise addition has already been spotted ahead of time. It is neither more nor less than Stranded Deep, which is therefore the very first arrival of the Xbox Game Pass of the year.
In this title, you play as a survivor of an air crash that ran aground in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. The goal is simple: survive at all costs. Search every corner of the island, discover hidden underwater areas, collect as many supplies and materials as possible, and build as much as possible to hope to stay alive. However, hunger and thirst will not be your only enemies. This first Xbox Game Pass game from January 2023 received a fairly good reception from players. On Steam, it has more than 35,000 rather positive reviews. As for the rest of the program for the month, we know the first additions which will arrive in mid-January. For the rest, we will have to wait for the official list.
