One of the best games of 2019, GOTY for some and flop for others, would soon be available in Xbox Game Pass. Hint at home: a Japanese game with daunting Icelandic landscapes.
No conference at Gamescom 2022 for Microsoft, but the manufacturer could have a surprise in store. And it would be linked to Xbox Game Pass, which has also just unveiled its latest games for August 2022 with some pretty nuggets.
Death Stranding in Xbox Game Pass
Behind this translation seen many times hides one of the games of 2019 and of this generation: Death Stranding, the UFO of Hideo Kojima and his studio Kojima Productions. A divisive proposal which has the merit of existing and which will probably have had as many detractors as worshipers. And soon, others will perhaps be able to position themselves in a camp.
A tweet from the official Xbox Game Pass PC account hints that Death Stranding could be available on the service, but obviously, only on this platform. This is a deduction that can be made from the cryptic message and the profile photo of this account. And it is true that it seems to fit. Especially since even if the IP belongs to PlayStation, the game is available on PC with 505 Games as publisher and it is already in the PS Plus Extra & Premium. The excellent sales having subsided, KJP would lose nothing by putting it on the service, especially with a financial counterpart.
Others associate the image with Senua’s Saga Hellblade 2 instead, but in that case why didn’t the classic XGP Twitter account do the same? Finally, last option, we would have a deliberately ambiguous tweet without any real announcement.
