After the first set of additions to Xbox Game Pass, Xbox has revealed the second wave of October’s lineup. For the second half of October, we’re getting eight games coming to Xbox Game Pass. The lineup consists of Day One releases, some classic horror titles, and some great indie games. Alongside the additions, look at what’s leaving the service and what extra benefits Xbox Game Pass members can get in the second half of October.
The Second Half of October’s Xbox Game Pass Lineup
Amnesia: Collection (Cloud, Console, and PC)
Starting the lineup off is a classic horror series and we’re getting all of them in October. The Amnesia Collection contains the first three games in the Amnesia series, The Dark Descent, A Machine For Pigs, and Justine. In Dark Decent, you play as Daniel who wakes up in a desolate castle, unable to remember his past. Piece together his lost memories and uncover what horrors are down below.
In A Machine For Pigs, take on the role of wealthy industrialist Oswald Mandus who awakes from slumber with visions of a dark and hellish machine. All he knows is that his children are in danger and only he can save them. Finally, in Justine, you are put through numerous trials constructed by a demented mind. Will you risk your life to save others? The Amnesia Collection arrives on Xbox Game Pass on October 20.

The final October 20 addition is another horror title created by the Amnesia developers, Friction games. Soma is a sci-fi horror where you are trapped in an underwater facility where suddenly the machines have started communicating and thinking they’re human.
