Xbox Boss Phil Spencer Is 'Really Enjoying' Road 96 On Game Pass

One of our personal highlights of last week's Xbox Game Pass lineup was Road 96, and it seems Xbox boss Phil Spencer shares the same views, as he's been taking to Twitter to wax lyrical about the new Game Pass addition.

In his tweet, he praised the setting and the story-telling mechanic, and said he couldn't wait to play more:

"I'm really enjoying Road 96. Very interesting setting and the story telling mechanic is well done. I get a good sense of exploration and intrigue. Looking forward to playing more and finishing."

We reviewed Road 96 when the former Nintendo Switch console exclusive arrived on Xbox earlier this year, calling its story "about as close to perfect as you could ask for, and for that, we recommend it without a shadow of a doubt."

If you haven't tried it yet, you can check out some details below, along with the official trailer:

"Summer 1996, Today is the day! You hit the road. Adventure. Freedom. Escape. Run. Flee the Regime. Try to survive. On this risky road trip to the border, you’ll meet incredible characters, and discover their intertwined stories and secrets in an ever-evolving adventure.

But every mile opens up a choice to make. Your decisions will change your adventure, change the people you meet, maybe even change the world. There are thousands of roads across the authoritarian nation of Petria. Which one will you take?"
