Alright, so we know we’re a few weeks early here, but we’re already excited by what’s coming to Xbox Game Pass in October 2022! Six games have been confirmed for next month so far, including some really big day one additions.
We’ve been waiting for some of these games for ageslike the sequel to A Plague Tale: Innocence and the first-person horror adventure game Scornalong with the highly anticipated Xbox debut of Persona 5 Royal!
There will be many other additions to Xbox Game Pass in October 2022 over the coming weeks, but for now, here’s a quick at-a-glance look at what’s been announced for the service next month:
