Game Pass October 2020 – We’d Like To See
Whilst we wait for the full announcement of the Game Pass games for October 2020 make sure you’ve got a great deal on your membership by checking out these special offer prices over on Amazon.
Here’s a few games we’re itching to see come to game pass in October 2020:
The Evil Within
While investigating a gruesome murder, Sebastian Castellanos a crime detective, encounters a mysterious and powerful force. After seeing the slaughter of his fellow officers, Sebastian is ambushed and knocked unconscious.
When he awakens, he finds himself in a deranged world where hideous creatures wander among the dead. Facing unimaginable terror, and fighting for survival, Sebastian embarks on a frightening journey to unravel what’s behind this evil force.
You play as a little girl named Six. Dressed in a yellow raincoat (IT vibes) six awakens from a dream of a woman resembling that of a Japanese Geisha.
You’re armed with only a lighter as you sneak through the bowels of a massive iron vessel designed for much larger inhabitants. The ship is called the Maw, a very scary name fitting for such a scary ship.
We’d probably describe Little Nightmares as a 2D stealth puzzle platformer. Guiding Six from left to right through Maw is essentially a matter of life and death. You’ll need to avoid fatal hazards whilst solving puzzles and navigating through the Maw. Proceed with caution!
