American publisher Annapurna Interactive held its 2021 showcase event last night, and as part of it, we got treated to news about a few upcoming Xbox Game Pass additions, including two brand-new releases.
Kicking things off, here are the two new launches that were confirmed:
The Artful Escape (September 9)
A teenage guitar prodigy sets out on a psychedelic journey to inspire his stage persona and confront the legacy of a dead folk legend. Starring voice performances by Michael Johnston, Caroline Kinley, Lena Headey, Jason Schwartzman, Mark Strong, and Carl Weathers.
A Memoir Blue (Coming Soon)
A song from years ago triggers a flood of memories for champion swimmer Miriam. Embark on an evocative journey through her turbulent childhood and the complicated relationship she shared with her devoted mother.
And here are the two games that aren't new releases, but will be new to Xbox Game Pass:
Telling Lies (Coming Soon)
Telling Lies is the new video game from Sam Barlow, creator of Her Story and Silent Hill: Shattered Memories. An investigative thriller game with non-linear storytelling, Telling Lies revolves around a cache of secretly recorded video conversations. It stars Logan Marshall-Green, Alexandra Shipp, Kerry Bishé and Angela Sarafyan.
Gorogoa (Coming Soon)
Winner of Debut Game at the 2018 BAFTA Games Awards, as well as Best Mobile Game and the Innovation Award at the GDC 2018 Choice Awards, Gorogoa is an elegant evolution of the puzzle genre, told through a beautifully hand-drawn story designed and illustrated by Jason Roberts.
The other major bit of news to come out of the event was the announcement of the first and only expansion for 2019's critically-acclaimed Outer Wilds called Echoes of the Eye, which will be launching on September 28.
