Welcome to the weekend! We've got more new content to check out over the next couple of days, including a batch of fresh Game Pass additions, new Games with Gold, and the usual (massive) set of great deals on the Microsoft Store.
Here's what we're playing this weekend:

I don't know about you, but I've really been enjoying the new Obi-Wan Kenobi series on Disney+ so far, so I'm definitely in a Star Wars mood at the moment! The obvious go-to is LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, which I'm continuing to enjoy, but I'm also eager to play more Knights of the Old Republic and Battlefront 2 this weekend.
Aside from that, my focus at the moment is on trying to get some time with Sniper Elite 5, which I'm really looking forward to digging into, and I may also give Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection a try now that it's on Xbox Game Pass.
Have a good weekend, everyone!

It's gonna be a busy (and maybe even sunny!) weekend, so my gaming time may be pretty short-lived but, if I do get a chance to jump onto Xbox for a few hours, I'll 100% be smashing into Assassin's Creed Origins to check it out in all its brand new 60FPS glory.
I've already tasted the difference with this one running at 60FPS on PC and it makes a really noticeable difference to the smoothness of traversal - especially when you're parkouring around large towns and cities - as well as during intense action sequences. I still think it's the best setting we've seen in an AC thus far, even if the side quests and missions can get a little bit busywork at times. Have a good weekend whatever you're up to or playing!
