Let’s leave the woes of last year behind us and step into a new one with a fantastic selection of free games coming to the Xbox Game Pass in January 2023. Here’s everything we know that’s coming to the monthly subscription service.
The last month games selection was one that I look back on fondly, I really hope we get our moneys worth this month too. Here’s the list of free games coming to game pass in January 23′:
- Persona 3 Portable
- Persona 4 Golden
- Age Of Empires 2: Definitive Edition
Xbox Game Pass January 2023
Just two games so far then. I’m hoping the new years game pass would have started off with a bit more of a bang if I’m completely honest Make sure you check back soon for news of more games coming in January.
So, let’s get into the list of all the free games coming to game pass this January. Detailed below is a close look at each game on the list.
Persona 3 Portable
Date: 19th January 2023
Persona 3 portable was originally announced at the Xbox and Bethesda showcase back in June of 2022 and fans have been waiting for more news ever since. The publisher went on to confirm that Persona 3 portable would be released on multiple platforms.
So, the good news is that, if you play on either the PS5, PS4 or PC, you’ll be able to buy and play it on your chosen platform.
The Portable version of Persona 3 comes with an alternate character. That alternate character is a different female protagonist to the other version of the game.
I really like how Persona 3 portable has similar themes to that of ‘The Butterfly Effect’ in that the decisions you take, such as selecting which character gender to play as, leads you down different routes in the game.
If you don’t want to wait until January 2023 to get it on Game Pass, hit the button below and check it out on Amazon.
Persona 4 Golden
Date: 19th January 2023
Along with P3P, Persona 4 Golden is coming to modern consoles via Game Pass in January 2023, which I’m also super excited about.
Persona 4 Golden is an enhanced, updated re-release of the classic Persona 4 which launched on the PS VITA. This updated version adds a variety of new content and features to significantly update the original gameplay experience.
It’s not often we get two games from the same series launch on the same day, I’m looking forward to first playing P3P and then checking out how P4: Golden plays on a modern system. I’m hoping the game mechanics and graphics have had a boost.
You can jump ahead and play it now if you don’t wish to wait until it’s launched on game pass, hit the button below to check it out on Amazon. Fair warning though, it’s quite expensive!
Age Of Empires 2: Definitive Edition
Date: 31st January 2023
Platform: Console, Cloud
A great game to look forward to. It’s not out until the very end of the month though, so we’ll have to wait until 31st Jan to get your hands on it.
We all know what this games about, but for those of you who don’t here’s the plot synopis:
“In the 14th century, while lesser men tear apart the decaying remains of the Mongol Empire, Tamerlane sees entropy as opportunity. A brilliant, charismatic tactician bred on the rugged steppes of Transoxiana, can he restore the splendor of the fractured state—even if he must slaughter half of its inhabitants in the process?”
