Microsoft has announced the latest batch of games to receive the Game Pass treatment, adding some fantastic titles to the already-great collection. Game Pass will receive seven new games before February 12, including some fantastic triple-A releases, and some top-notch Indies.

Well, it's time for us to get the announcement that we crave every single announcement-less day... So, like, every day, except for today, we are absolutely THROTHING over this bad-boy: XBOX GAME PASS, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! It's time, it's time, it's time for our dose of free new games!

Well, this time it's a mixed bag. That previous paragraph may have held a bunch of hype, but this one probably won't because, let's be honest, a couple of these games are pretty s**t. Oh, and the other ones are fantastic, but pretty old. The couple of Indie games announced are quite nice, though, hence the bollocks in the redactor.

That's enough of this meta-s**t, we'll jump into the list at this point, and reveal to you why you probably... shouldn't be that excited about the latest Xbox Game Pass Announcements.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood (Android): Releasing on February 11

The sequel to Wolfenstein II, there's a reason that this game has a user score of 2.3 on Metacritic. It's awful, and the 69 critical Metascore is an absurdity that we still can't make heads-or-tails of. There's not really much to say, it's Wolfenstein – just worse. If that somehow sounds good to you, then you can get it for free on Xbox Game Pass pretty soon.

Jurassic World Evolution (Android and Console): Also Out On February 11

An okay game, we suppose. Basically, Roller Coaster Tycoon but with Dinosaurs, so there's not much to dislike. We won't say too much, but it was kind of a mess at launch and has been cleaned up a bit now, with a bunch of new features. It is pretty fun, and for free, a good bargain. You should definitely check it out if you have the time, and if you hate it... who cares? It was free!

Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age (Console and PC): February 11 is Going to be a Big Day!

FINALLY! Something worthwhile! It might be a remake of a PS2 classic, but Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age is a f**king fantastic game, and the absolute take-away of this Game Pass announcement. This game has a Metacritic score higher than 9 (insert awkward emoji here, if you so desire), and it certainly deserves it! FOR FREE? Play this game.

Ghost of a Tale (PC): Oh! February 4!

What's this game? Well, we're here to introduce it to you: it's a mouse RPG! Or for our furry friends, it's a wheet wheet role-playing game, with plenty of cheese. That joke fell flat, didn't it? Maybe like Tilo, the courageous minstrel Mouse who stars in Ghost of a Tale! Well, by fall flat we are referring to how small he is, because this guy's f**king awesome, the game is f**king awesome, and you should totally f**king play it – especially for free!

We're feeling lazy, here's a short list of all the other games coming to Xbox Game Pass very soon! Dive into these three games that we could totally write more about:

  • The Falconeer (Android, Console, and PC) - February 4.
  • Project Winter (Android, Console, and PC) - February 4.

Well, it seems February is a... month? It's fine, we love free games whenever we can get them, so, no complaining here! Just check out Final Fantasy XII: Zodiac Age if you haven't already, that's all we ask...
