It's Game Pass day! We've got two games joining the service today, one of which is already available in Spelunky 2, and the other which is set to join around 1pm EST / 6pm GMT — the brand-new co-op shooter, The Anacrusis.
Here are the new games you can download with Game Pass today:
Spelunky 2: Console, PC
Spelunky returns in this greatly-expanded sequel to the original roguelike platformer! Meet the next generation of explorers as they find themselves on the Moon, searching for treasure and missing family. Spelunky 2 builds upon the unique, randomized challenges that made the original a classic, offering a huge adventure designed to satisfy players old and new.
The Anacrusis: Console, PC, Cloud (1pm EST / 6pm GMT)
The Anacrusis is a four-player, cooperative first-person shooter set aboard a massive starship stranded at the edge of explored space. Team up with your friends in an infinitely-replayable fight against alien hordes to unlock perks, weapons, and new ways to play that you can share with your team!
Interested in any of these new Xbox Game Pass titles? Let us know in the comments.
I expect the Anacrusis to be very bad, from what I saw in IGN's footage this week. Spelunky may be the better coop game of the two - but I'll try them both.
Anacrusis looks very uncooked, don't really know if it will hit...
This is completely unrealted to the article but i recommend if you have gamepass to try out The Gunk..
@Bmartin001 Finished the Gunk the day before last, a very enjoyable and not too long experience. Gonna try both Anacrusis and Spelunky 2 just to see what it's all about...
I dont see The Anacrusis on gamepass yet. When is it expected to drop?
@OliverOwen it says 6pm GMT that it drops
@PartyMarty See what happens when you get too excited? You say stupid things like i did and then get embarrassed! Thanks for the heads up!
The Anacrusis is labeled as being in Early Access, maybe that's why it looks a little undercooked? I wasn't aware it was Early Access until I downloaded it just now. Either way, I'm looking forward to it. I can't get enough of co-op shooters lately.
I think both aren't going to be big hitter exactly... But thats okay, still more games to help distract my ADD and just give a chance too, which I most certainly would not have without game pass.
For people not seeing the Anacruisis on Game Pass yet... Go check the app on your phone. It will be there and can start the download from there. It still isn't on the app for me but I have it downloaded now
Definitely giving Spelunky 2 a go, I liked the original.
Not very many recent Gamepass games appeal to me.
I guess that's the risk of the service. But I don't know how much longer I'll be subscribed.
The Anacrusis is INCREDIBLY dull. i struggled to finish one area, then turned it off. Yikes.
@OliverOwen we've all been there bud! At least you've downloaded it now 🙂
@PartyMarty Yup, downloaded it, played about 3 minutes before uninstalling it because it was so horrible and there were no achievements. Really bad game.
