Microsoft continues to rotate the available titles in the Xbox Game Pass around, but this time, one Rockstar Games title is coming, and another game is leaving the subscription service.
Microsoft announced that on May 7, Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming to the Xbox Game Pass. We have to add that we’Re talking about the console version, so if you have an Xbox One, an Xbox One S, or an Xbox One X, you can get the game in a few days. On PC, this is not the case.
We mentioned Rockstar swap for a good reason. On May 7, another game is leaving the Xbox Game Pass that was made by Rockstar. Grand Theft Auto V was in the service for four months (well, it still IS, but not for long…). It shows that the line-up is not always expanding when it comes to third-party titles. Xbox Game Studios games, yes, they join the „Xbox Netflix” on day-1 (although here, you don’t stream the games, you can download them).
„Winner of over 175 Game of the Year Awards and recipient of over 250 perfect scores, Red Dead Redemption 2 is an epic tale of honour and loyalty at the dawn of the modern age. America, 1899. Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang are outlaws on the run. With federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation massing on their heels, the gang must rob, steal, and fight their way across the rugged heartland of America to survive. As deepening internal divisions threaten to tear the gang apart, Arthur must choose between his ideals and loyalty to the gang who raised him.
Now featuring additional Story Mode content and a fully-featured Photo Mode, Red Dead Redemption 2 also includes free access to the shared living world of Red Dead Online, where players take on an array of roles to carve their unique path on the frontier as they track wanted criminals as a Bounty Hunter, create a business as a Trader, unearth exotic treasures as a Collector or run an underground distillery as a Moonshiner and much more,” Microsoft’s overview says.
With the arrival of the Xbox Series X, the Xbox Game Pass is expected to kick into a higher gear. We’ll see.
