Game news Xbox Game Pass: Hurry up to these games before they’re gone

Like Netflix or other on-demand services, the Xbox Game Pass regularly renews its catalog. We thus learned that a dozen titles would soon join Microsoft’s service. But this arrival also coincides with the departure of several works, and not the least.

On February 15, a day after Valentine’s Day (think about it if you’re in a relationship), Microsoft will remove six games from its catalog. This leaves you a little time to try them out and even finish them, since there are about ten days left. Those concerned are: Control, Code Vein, Final Fantasy XII : The Zodiac Age, The Medium, Project Winter and The Falconeer. For those who do not know some of these titles, here is a little reminder:

Control

Directed by the Remedy Entertainment studio (Alan Wake, Quantum Break, Max Payne…), Control is a rather unique experience. The plot takes place in New York, in a building that houses a secret agency, the FBC – Federal Bureau of Control. This is suddenly attacked by the Hiss, a mysterious entity that takes possession of the bodies of the employees. Jesse Faden, whom the player embodies, finds himself embedded in this story. Her goal is to find her brother kidnapped by the FBC and finds herself confronted with this new threat. Combining action, reflection, this TPS surprises with its narrative framework, its dynamism and its realization, visual as well as sound, hard-hitting.

Code Vein

Signed Bandai Namco, Code Vein is an action-RPG following in the footsteps of From Software’s Souls. In this title in third person view, the player embodies a vampire called “Revenant” and evolves in a futuristic open world. In this universe, the Revenants are amnesiac and rush on their prey to satisfy their thirst for blood. The reason ? If they fail to quench their thirst, they turn into Fallen, wandering monsters. The player is therefore confronted with these evil entities and the particularity of the title lies in the Blood Codes. By switching from one to the other (Fighter – Watchman – Mage), the hero has access to an anthology of weapons and equipment and can thus personalize his approaches to combat. Playable solo, the game also has an online cooperative mode.

Final Fantasy XII : The Zodiac Age

This one probably doesn’t need to be introduced. Twelfth episode of the famous Square-Enix franchise, it takes place in the imaginary world of Ivalice and features the characters of Vaan, Ashe, Balthier, Fran, Penelo or even Bash. Released in 2007 in Europe on PlayStation 2, this component introduces several innovations (including the Gambits system) and is based on an immersive and endearing universe. This “The Zodiac Age” edition is the remaster of the original. Visually improved, this iteration benefits from a more intuitive Zodiac Job System, an accelerated mode and it integrates – as desired – English and Japanese voices. The visual alterations are pleasant and even if the animations have aged, this component remains a safe bet for the FF license.

The Medium

Exclusive to the Microsoft catalog, The Medium is about to retire and it would be a shame not to try it, especially if you like games of the genre. In this adventure mixing horror and psychology, the player embodies a woman called Marianne, a medium capable of moving between the world of the living and that of the dead. To solve a mystery, she will sink into the depths of her past and progress through the organic “corridors” of an abandoned hotel resort. With its share of action and reflection, The Medium is a fairly linear title, but which will appeal to fans of psychological thrillers thanks to its narrative framework and its remarkable artistic direction.

Project Winter

Inspired by board game classics like the Loups-Garous de Thiercelieux or Avalon, Project Winter is an amazing work! Developed by the Other Ocean Interactive studio, this title immerses the player in the middle of a hostile snowy environment. To survive, he must cooperate with his companions, while being wary of the “bad apples” who are there to betray the group. As in the excellent Werewolves Within, the interest of the adventure lies in the fact that the players must both grant their confidence, but also remain on their guard. Everything is based on suspicion and that’s what’s funny!

The Falconeer

Take flight! Entirely designed by one person (!), Tomas Sala, The Falconeer is a shooter that puts you in the role of a raptor capable of all wonders. Based on aerial combat between falcons, the player explores an oceanic world and engages in battles that are as impactful as they are artistic. Combining perilous missions and side quests, the adventure offers a high challenge and displays a really pleasant artistic direction. With a lifespan of ten hours, despite somewhat redundant quests, it is refreshing and tries to stand out from the rest of the industry. A shot to try!

It’ll be too late to try out these games on February 15, so if you’ve got a little time and want to give it a try, grab your Xbox Game Pass.
