Xbox Game Pass for PC (opens in new tab) has added five new games to its library today, and there's a bit of something for everyone. Age of Empires 3: Definitive Edition launches on the service as of October 15, and while Alistair reckons it "doesn't feel very definitive (opens in new tab)" it's probably worth a look if you harbour fond memories of the original.
Elsewhere, JRPG epic Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition (opens in new tab) has also been added, a spit and polish version of the original PlayStation 3 exclusive. Fans of the series often cite it as the best Tales Of... game, so it's probably worth dumping fifty-odd hours into.
Three brilliant indies are also added: Heave Ho, Katana Zero and The Swords of Ditto: Mormo's Curse. Katana Zero is a particular highlight, with Lauren writing in her review (opens in new tab): "Thoughtfully-designed levels and versatile combat abilities make Katana Zero worthy of a rewind despite cookie-cutter characters."
As for games that have left the service, there's five of 'em: Felix the Reaper, Metro 2033 Redux, Minit, Saints Row IV Re-Elected and State of Mind. Later this month, on October 30, Tacoma, The Red Strings Club and The Lord of the Rings: Adventure Card Game will also leave the service.
