Microsoft has recently unveiled an exciting lineup of games that will be joining and leaving Xbox Game Pass from mid-September to early October.

  3. Cocoon: Embark on a mind-bending adventure in Cocoon, a game from the visionary mind of Jeppe Carlsen, known for his work on Inside and Limbo. Available on both console and PC starting from September 29, you will navigate through a series of recursive worlds, solving puzzles, and uncovering the mysteries of this captivating game world.

  4. Gotham Knights: Join the Bat-Family in Gotham Knights, an action-packed game set in the aftermath of Batman’s death.
