More Being Added To Xbox Game Pass For January 2021


Xbox Game Pass has been generous this month and they haven’t stopped yet.

The number of games added to the list is growing and we have some real treasures arriving soon.

Along with some more games added to the list, they are also giving us some updates/DLC’s.

Xbox has also decided to give us Xbox Game Pass Quests, which means all through January they will be doubling the points you can earn from Ultimate quests for EA Play and Xbox Series X/S titles. You will also be able to earn double points if you are playing on an Xbox One console.

So, without further ado here are the titles that will be arriving soon on Xbox Game Pass.

Control (PC) (21st of January):

The game revolves around the Federal Bureau of Control (FBC), a secret U.S. government agency tasked with containing and studying phenomena that violate the laws of reality.

As Jesse Faden (voiced by Courtney Hope), the Bureau’s new Director, the player explores the Oldest House – the FBC’s paranormal headquarters – and utilize powerful abilities in order to defeat a deadly enemy known as the Hiss, which has invaded and corrupted reality.

The player gains abilities by finding Objects of Power, mundane objects like a rotary phone or a floppy disc imbued with energies from another dimension, that have been at the center of major paranormal events and since recovered by the FBC.

Desperados III (Android, Console, and PC) (21st of January):

Desperados III is a story-driven, hardcore tactical stealth game, set in a ruthless Wild West scenario.

In this long-awaited prequel to the beloved classic Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive, John Cooper will join forces with the runaway bride Kate, the shady hitman Doc McCoy, the giant trapper Hector, and Isabelle, a mysterious lady from New Orleans.

On Cooper’s quest for redemption, his adventures lead him and his gang from rural towns, over swamps and riverbanks, and finally to a dramatic showdown worthy of Wild West legends.

Play smart if you want to succeed. A good plan can make the difference between survival and finding yourself at the business end of a pistol. Drifter, gunslinger, and natural leader Cooper can kill quietly with a knife, or take out multiple foes with his revolvers. Strongman Hector carries a giant bear trap and can slay the toughest opponents with his trusty axe.

Cold blooded bounty hunter McCoy likes to be methodical, using lures, knockout gas, poison syringes, and a custom long-range pistol. Kate can fool almost any man with the right outfit and kills discreetly with her hidden gun. And then there is this mysterious woman from New Orleans, Isabelle… Combine your team’s special skills to overcome each tough challenge in your own style.
