Some Great Games Are Joining Xbox Game Pass In March

However, on March 20, the much anticipated exclusive Sea of Thieves will be added to the program as well.

Following the announcement that all future first-party Xbox games would be available to play on Game Pass, Microsoft has announced the next batch of games that will join the platform.

It's all part of Microsoft's new initiative to make first-party games available for Games Pass at launch. By releasing the Game Pass, the retailers complained that Microsoft will not only eat through their new game sales but used-games sales as well.

You can take a look at the Xbox Games Pass releases in the gallery below. Episode 1 will remain free-to-play for everyone, but Xbox Games Pass subscribers will get access to the three other story episodes, the two additional bonus episodes as well as the Hunk character in Raid mode.

Four other games complete the March Xbox Games Pass update: There is the supernatural thriller Oxenfree, the side-scrolling shooter The Final Station, fishing simulator Euro Fishing and the Xbox 360 oldie Sonic CD.

Sea of Thieves is described as an "essential pirate experience" from the makers of Perfect Dark and Banjo Kazooie. Players will be able to traverse and explore an open world via a pirate ship filling different roles such as steering, hoisting sails, navigation, firing cannons and other tasks.

The Xbox Game Pass system already has a large selection of games to choose from, but more are set to be added to the subscription service.
