2021 has been a pretty interesting year for Xbox Game Pass if you're a fan of simulators, with the likes of Microsoft Flight Simulator and the majestic Lawn Mowing Simulator landing on console, but another contender is about to enter the Game Pass Arena in 2022 in the form of Pigeon Simulator — and it's ready to poop on its competition.

What is it, you ask? It's described as a "physics sandbox roguelite, featuring a rich mix of hand-crafted content and procedurally generated elements to create a unique experience each time you play." The idea is to "play as the world's most notorious birds and help them in their quests for revenge, love, and world domination."

"Begin each life as a baby bird. Survive in the crazy circumstances you find yourself randomly born into. Explore, learn, and grow your Gene Pool. If you die, some of your DNA is passed on to your successors, making them stronger. Conquer one location at a time, through any means you can find, until you fulfill your destiny and make the entire planet your Pigeon Paradise."

Pigeon Simulator doesn't have a release date as of yet, but according to its Steam page, it's going to be launching in early access for the first 12 months in order to "incorporate lots of community ideas and make it something everyone can love and enjoy.” It's also already been confirmed to release on console, PC and cloud on Xbox Game Pass.

Here's a little bit more information, along with a few early screenshots:

"Every few generations, a pigeon is born with extraordinary capabilities--a hero in the flock. You are this Blessed Bird. You are The Chosen One. But with great power, comes great responsibility. How will you create your Pigeon Paradise?"
