5 Xbox Game Pass games that you’d buy anyway

Game Pass is the video game’s version of Netflix or Amazon Prime – a subscription service that brings a rotating library of free Xbox Game Pass games for PC and Xbox players.

The Game Pass, which was launched in February 2017, gives you access to over 100 high-quality games, with different plans to suit different people. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate was released two years later, in June of 2019.

Some play on their console, while others use the Xbox PC Game Pass.

Those who sign up pay a monthly subscription fee in exchange for access to their game library. It is much more affordable than paying for each platform’s library separately.

Here are some of the best games on Game Pass that will make your subscription worth it.

Dead by Daylight

We’ve all grown up playing hide and seek in our neighborhood.  If you did, this one will evoke a sense of nostalgia.

Well, a little at least because even though the game is darker and a tad more brutal, it has some elements from the game that made many childhoods memorable.

You can join a team of four survivors working in tandem to plot an escape route against the enemy. You can either play as a killer or as a survivor. Both roles have their own charm in this game that will keep you hooked for hours.
