Microsoft has revealed the second wave of games that will be added to Xbox Game Pass on PC and Xbox One in October. Real-time strategy game Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition officially launches on October 15, and will also be offered immediately on Game Pass.
A remaster of the 2005 game, Age of Empires III: Definitive Edition features a 4K resolution upgrade, a fully remastered soundtrack, two new game modes, all previously released expansions, and two new civilizations, the Swedes and Inca, to play as.
It’ll be joined by the quirky Heave Ho, JRPG Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition, compact action RPG The Swords of Ditto: Mormo’s Curse, and the stylish action-platformer Katana Zero on the same day. A few days later, ScourgeBringer, Cricket 19, and Supraland will round out the new offerings:
