Fallout 4 Returns to Xbox Game Pass After Disappearing Last Year

Fallout 4 Returns to Xbox Game Pass After Disappearing Last Year

Just Cause 4, F1 2018, and Lego Batman 2 round out the month.

Xbox Game Pass is getting four more games in March: Just Cause 4, F1 2018, Lego Batman 2, and Fallout 4, which actually returns to the service after leaving last year. The four titles will be rolling out onto Game Pass throughout the month.

Just Cause 4 and Lego Batman 2 are available today. The latest in Avalanche's sandbox blow-em-up, Just Cause 4 is a fun enough romp so long as you're not looking for anything more than that. It's also a fairly new release. But considering Square Enix singled out Just Cause 4 for poor sales in its last earnings report might be why that's the case.

F1 2018 and Fallout 4 arrive to Game Pass on March 14. Fallout 4 was actually a part of Xbox Game Pass last year during E3 2018, but was later removed in November. This was around the time Fallout 76 launched, and presumably was taken off to not take away attention from Bethesda's multiplayer Fallout. But now it's coming back, perhaps to take attention away from Bethesda's multiplayer Fallout.

There's now well over 200 games on Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass subscription service. Similar to Netflix, customers can pay a flat monthly rate of $9.99 and have access to a library of digital-only games. Xbox first-party titles also launch day-one on Game Pass.

It's a popular service and could work well with the rumored digital-only Xbox One S that's reportedly coming in the next few months. In the meantime check out the full Xbox Game Pass list here.
