Dirt 5, Wreckfest, and more coming to Xbox Game Pass this month

Xbox has unveiled a new list of titles coming to its Game Pass Cloud service on mobile devices in the latter half of February.

This Thursday, 18th February, Wreckfest and Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire – Ultimate Edition are both hitting the service. Wreckfest is a destruction derby-type game where you crash cars and cause mayhem with a true-to-life realistic physics system. Meanwhile, Pillars of Eternity 2 is an award-winning RPG with total freedom of exploration and character customisation from Obsidian Entertainment. The version that appears on Game Pass is the Ultimate Edition which has all major updates and expansions.

Later, on 23rd February, Killer Queen Black joins Xbox Game Pass. It’s a strategic team platformer featuring intense multiplayer action for up to eight players. Finally, Dirt 5 comes to the service a few days later on 25th February. This off-road racing game was originally a launch title for the Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5, and truly demonstrates the power of the new hardware.

Although it might not be able to do that as effectively on a small mobile screen, the fact that cloud-streaming technology has allowed us to play games that look this good on our phones is magnificent.

With this new update to Game Pass, more titles have received touch control support for when you want to play the games on your phone like traditional mobile titles rather than hooking up a gamepad. The new titles to receive touch control support are: Bridge Constructor Portal, Morkredd, Neoverse, Nowhere Prophet, Spiritfarer, The Little Acre and Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair. This gets added on 18th February, this Thursday.

Check out more information about Xbox Game Pass from the official website for the premium subscription service.
