Game Pass Games January 2022.

Xbox Game Pass January 2022

Here’s everything you’ll want to know about all the games that are coming to Xbox Game Pass in January 2022. The free games that Microsoft has announced for the monthly subscription service will start be playable from 1st January.

If the last 12 months was anything to go by, then we’re in for a real treat with our memberships this year. I’m really hoping for a lot more day one releases as these have proved to be extremely popular with game pass members.

Some months last year, Microsoft seemed to bulk up the offerings with some really poor choices. I want to see less of that this year. I want to see more Indie titles and a handful of wildcards or games that didn’t really get the exposure they deserved because of marketing budgets or what ever it may have been.

Regardless of what platform preference you choose; Console, PC or via the Cloud we’ve listed everything that we know is coming to the service so far aswell as some ‘TOP PICKS’ that’d we’d love to see be made available.

The Xbox Game Pass January 2022 lineup is likely to be fronted by the release of a super duper flagship game but, we just don’t know what that game will be yet.

It appears Microsoft’s 2022 strategy is to really push the Xbox Series X using the day one strategy. Day One releases come straight to the Xbox Game Pass service.

By launching games via the Xbox Game Pass service Microsoft has made sure that your Xbox Game Pass membership is worth it, it practically pays for it’s self with just one AAA rated game title launched via day one.

In the day and age of subscription services game pass is my go too, it’s a must have service for anyone who owns an Xbox. 2021 was a super impressive year for game pass games and Xbox Game Pass in 2022 is about to better last years offerings and then some.

Read on below to see the full Xbox Game Pass January 2022 games library.


These games have been confirmed to be coming to Xbox Game Pass in January 2022 so far:

  • Perfect Dark

Perfect Dark

Perfect Dark was originally released by Nintendo for the N64 in 2000. It was a spiritual successor to GoldenEye 007 – possibly the greatest N64 ever made – and had similar FPS gameplay and themes. The split-screen multiplayer was similar and required a memory expansion pack to run, it was so adavanced for its time.

A sequel, Perfect Dark Zero was released for the Xbox 360 in 2005, and a remastered version of the original also made it onto the console.

More games will be announced in the first week of January 2022, so make sure to check back here, or subscribe to our newsletter for further gaming updates.
