Microsoft has announced the second wave of games coming to Xbox Game Pass in November 2023, taking subscribers up to the end of the month.
Available today, November 14 is Coral Island (Cloud and Xbox Series X|S), a farm sim game about island living from Stairway Games. Here’s the official blurb: “Coral Island is a vibrant and laid-back reimagining of farm sim games. Be who you want and experience enchanting island living at your own pace — live off the land, nurture animals, build relationships with a diverse cast of townsfolk, and make the world around you a more vital and harmonious place.”
Here’s a surprise: Dune: Spice Wars is available now via PC Game Pass and coming to Xbox consoles and Cloud Gaming on November 28. This 4X real-time strategy game developed by Shiro Games and published by Funcom is set in Frank Herbert’s Dune universe. You lead your faction and battle for control and dominance over the harsh desert planet of Arrakis. IGN’s Dune: Spice Wars review returned a 9/10: “Dune: Spice Wars is a clever, multilayered, challenging RTS that skillfully translates so much of what is cool about Frank Herbert’s universe in its interesting mechanics.”
And finally, Rollerdrome (Cloud, PC, and Xbox Series X|S) hits Game Pass on November 28. Rollerdrome is the well-received third-person action shooter from Roll7, the British game developer behind the OlliOlli series. It launched last year on PC, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 to critical acclaim. IGN’s Rollerdrome review returned a 9/10: “Rollerdrome’s unexpected blend of skating and shooting is a joy to master, backed by an arresting art design, thumping soundtrack, and a surprisingly layered story.”
