We don't know much about Bethesda's epic new IP. All we have to go on as to what the game is that it's a sci-fi RPG set somewhere in space, and you can play as whoever you want to be.

Developer: Bethesda Game Studios
Game Pass: Yes

Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League

Rocksteady is taking a break from the Bat for a co-op action game where Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, and King Shark have to take on Superman, if the trailer is to be believed. Gulp.

Developer: Rocksteady
Game Pass: No

Alan Wake 2

Alan Wake is back at long, long last, some 11 years after the original game's release. Remedy is bringing back our favorite writer for a sequel, but this time it's going to be a true survival horror title.

Developer: Remedy Entertainment
Game Pass: No

Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2

Release date: TBC
Developer: Ninja Theory
Game Pass: No

It's a long way off, but we're still ridiculously overexcited for the next Mass Effect. Seemingly picking up after the events of Mass Effect 3, we'll be seeing some old faces return.
