Pure Xbox Game Club October 2022: Immortality

Want to enhance your Xbox Game Pass experience? Come join the official Pure Xbox Game Club!

We can't take any credit on staff for this — the PX Game Club is the work of ralphdibny and the rest of the contributors over at the Pure Xbox forums, who have established a community that meets up every month to play a game on Xbox Game Pass and share their experiences. Games are voted on every month by the contributors involved.

The game for October 2022 is Immortality, which is available on Xbox Series X, Series S, PC and via Xbox Cloud Gaming. It released back in August, and was awarded a rare 10/10 score here at Pure Xbox!

You'll find the forum thread to get involved below (it has over 2000 entries to date!):

If you're interested in what kind of discussion goes on, here's what a couple of contributors had to say about last month's Pure Xbox Game Club title, Immortals Fenyx Rising:

"Immortals was, I think, unjustly compared with BoTW, and maybe alienated many players, because the critics said this Ubi title was a 'BoTW of lesser quality'. But no! This one's a great adventure game. It reminded me of a time long gone when a much younger version of me thought Ubi could do no wrong, with all their Splinter Cell and Rayman games (oh boy, I was sooo naive). So, I would describe Immortals more like a funny take on the Assassin's Creed formula than a BoTW clone."

"You can't have an open world game that's about exploration if you're restricted by your powers. It's in this case that the Assassin's Creed and Breath of the Wild formulas clash with each other and end up worsening the experience as a whole. There's no amount of excuses you can make up in order to defend this (like the game telling you what powers you need in an area), this shouldn't happen in the game at all. It's that simple. If you're going to make a clone of BotW, then do it right!"
