We've got another brand-new addition to Xbox Game Pass to shout about today in the form of ScourgeBringer, which is a roguelike-platformer described as a "crossbreed between Dead Cells and Celeste."
The game, which enjoyed a highly successful Early Access period on Steam for PC (it holds a 'Very Positive' rating on the platform based on over 1000 reviews), features fast-paced action with fluid platforming controls, a frantic combat system, and hordes of "unspeakable" enemies and giant bosses.
The final version seems to be going down well, too, with Pure Xbox sister site Nintendo Life recently giving the game a 9/10 rating in its review, calling it a "wonderfully slick and addictive roguelite adventure."
You can check out the new animated release trailer for ScourgeBringer above, and if you're not an Xbox Game Pass member, there's also a free demo for the game on the Microsoft Store. Nice!
Set in a post-apocalyptic world where a mysterious entity wreaked havoc on all humanity, ScourgeBringer puts you in the shoes of the deadliest warrior of her clan: Kyhra. Help her to explore the unknown and slash her way through ancient machines guarding the seal of her past, and maybe the redemption of humanity.
