Original story (Sat 16th Sep, 2023): We're only midway through September, but we're already looking ahead to October 2023 on Xbox Game Pass as well! Forza Motorsport is the big one, although there are six other titles that have already been confirmed alongside it.
One of the highlights is definitely Warhammer 40,000: Darktide, which is making its debut on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, and be sure to lookout for the likes of Cities: Skylines 2, Jusant and The Lamplighters League.
We'll obviously get more games announced for Xbox Game Pass in October 2023 in the near future, but for the time being, here are more details on the seven games confirmed for October so far:
Sneak, steal, and shoot your way through a world of pulp adventure in The Lamplighters League! Globetrot across a variety of exciting locales around the world and outwit your enemies in strategic turn-based combat - and, if you play your cards right, you might just save the world.
