ID Xbox 2021

Microsoft held an ID@Xbox showcase over the weekend, which must have clearly been put together by Zack Snyder as it ran for a gargantuan number of hours. Reports of a gaming industry follow-up, Zack Snyder’s Nintendo Direct, are still mere hearsay at this point. Anyway, dozens of games were shown off from a number of smaller developers, but the key takeaway here is that 22 of those titles will be coming to Xbox Game Pass in the near future.

Some of those games are already out on Games Pass for PC and some have been previously announced, but in total there are another 15 games to look forward to. One of the previously mentioned games is the absolutely delightful Art of Rally, which takes the best part about a mad sport and condenses it into a grippy and fun excuse to kick mud into the gaping maws of curious onlookers who paid good money for that privilege.

Backbone is a noir roleplaying detective adventure set in a dystopian Vancouver and beautifully rendered in 2.5D pixel art environments, Boyfriend Dungeon is a dungeon-crawler about dating your weapons, and Moonglow Bay is a wholesome fishing RPG set along the 1980’s Eastern Canadian coastline. Here’s the full list, to whet your appetite:
