As much as the year has been dragging along, we’ve officially made it to September 2020. Along with new game releases this month, there are things for gamers to look forward to including updates to Xbox Game Pass. While there are a few games we’re sad to see leave the service this month, there are a number of new additions that are sure to keep us busy.
New additions to Xbox Game Pass for September 2020
On the Xbox blog, Microsoft announced the new additions to Xbox Game Pass for PC and console for September 2020. Among the new additions, gamers will have access to things on release date including the second episode of Tell Me Why.
You can also get in the Halloween spirit early by playing Resident Evil 7 Biohazard which hits Xbox Game Pass on September 3. Meanwhile, Destiny 2: Shadowkeep and Forsaken were teased for Xbox Game Pass, but we weren’t given a concrete date in regards to when they’ll be made available.
