Five Games Are Confirmed For Xbox Game Pass In January 2023 So Far

We've still got a long way to go with December 2022's Xbox Game Pass additions, but we're also keen to look ahead to what's coming to Xbox Game Pass in January 2023, with five games confirmed for next month so far.

There are some big games on the way, too! Monster Hunter Rise makes its Xbox debut during January 2023, for example, as do Persona 3 and Persona 4, along with Age of Empires 2 on console and the fast-paced FPS, Roboquest.

We'll keep you updated as and when more games are confirmed for January, but for now, here are more details on each of these five January 2023 Xbox Game Pass additions:

Persona 3 Portable (January 19th)

The Dark Hour, time "hidden" between one day and the next. Unfamiliar stillness swallows the city, people turn into eerie coffins, and otherworldly monsters called Shadows swarm. One night, the protagonist is attacked by these Shadows and the power of the heart, their Persona, is awakened.

Persona 4 Golden (January 19th)

Strange rumours of the Midnight Channel slowly spread through the rural town of Inaba, the protagonist’s new home, just as a chain of mysterious murders begins. As the protagonist and his teammates chase after the truth, they find themselves opening the door to another world.

Monster Hunter Rise (January 20th)

Set in the Japanese folklore inspired Kamura Village, players will explore lush ecosystems and battle fearsome monsters to become the ultimate hunter. Hunt solo or in a party with friends to earn rewards that you can use to craft a huge variety of weapons and armor.

Age Of Empires 2 Definitive Edition (January 31st)

Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition is one of the most beloved strategy games ever made and coming soon for the first time on Xbox and Xbox Game Pass, featuring brand new mechanics optimized for controller for both new and seasoned players alike. Enjoy 200+ hours of historical campaign gameplay, 1,000 years of human history and 35 civilizations from the comfort of your living room.

Roboquest (January TBD)

Roboquest is a fast FPS Roguelite in a scorched futureworld. You're a rebooted Guardian, ready to kick some metal ass! Fight with your buddy or by yourself and annihilate hordes of deadly bots in ever-changing environments.

Don't forget that even though we're looking ahead, December 2022 still has plenty more Game Pass additions to come, including the big day one arrival of High on Life next week. That should be a good one!
