Game Pass March 2022 lineup falls short of high expectations

Game Pass kicked off March with a bang, Add a highly acclaimed blockbuster (Guardians of the Galaxy) less than six months after release plus one of the best written games of all time (Kentucky Route Zero). In comparison, the rest of the month lacks the big headline hit that we’ve become so accustomed to as it has been for all of February. Here are the planned additions to Microsoft’s games-on-demand service in the coming weeks:

17. March

  • paper shredder (Cloud, PC, Next Gen Console)
  • Naheulbeuk Dungeon: The Amulet of Chaos (Cloud, Console, PC)

March 22

  • Tainted Grail: Conquest (Console)
  • Zero Escape: The Nonary Games (Cloud, Console, PC)

March 24th

  • Norco (pc)
  • F1 2021 (Console, via EA Play)

March 29th

  • Crusader Kings III (next-gen console)

March 31

  • Strange West (Cloud, Console, PC)

It’s wonderful that lesser-known games deserve a little more exposure, perhaps more than they’d get from a typical marketing push, but there’s no denying that we’ve grown accustomed to Game Pass being backed by tentpole releases . On the plus side, at least the library isn’t thinning. Besides three destiny 2 Extensions—abandoned, Shadow Fortressand Beyond the Light– the service will leave on April 11th, only three games will disappear on March 31st:

  • Madden NFL 20 (Cloud, Console, PC)
  • Narita boy (Cloud, Console, PC)
  • shadow warrior 2 (Cloud, Console, PC)

Look, I don’t mean to sound ungrateful here. The snowboard game paper shredder, like I already wrotewill eat up every second of my free time from now until the start of the next ski season. Strange Westan isometric role-playing game developed by the co-creator of dishonored and set in a fantasy-tinged American frontier certainly has my attention. And I’m curious how Crusader Kings III works (or doesn’t work) on the console.

But when you compare lineups like this to that stunning rosters from mid-season it’s hard not to want more. Microsoft Might Agree: Game Pass Subscriptions Coming in October missed the company goal. Game Pass March 2022 lineup falls short of high expectations
