Microsoft took the occasion of XO19 this week to announce a host of new games coming to its Game Pass subscription service, both for Xbox One and for PC. But it turns out they missed a couple that you can play right now, including Avalache’s goofy shoot ’em up Rage 2.
That’s right, you can head into the mutant-infested wasteland of Rage 2 right now if you’ve got Game Pass on PC. It’s big, it’s full of giant guns and monsters, and you can download it for no additional charge if you’re a subscriber.
It’s not a game we absolutely loved, mind – our Rage 2 review gave it a solid 7/10. But it’s certainly an entertaining FPS if you like id Software’s shooting and the arcadey driving that Avalanche perfected in 2015’s Mad Max.
Microsoft’s Game Pass announcement this week included Rage 2, but indicated the game would only be available to subscribers on Xbox One. However, it appeared in the Xbox app for Windows yesterday morning, and I’ve had a bit of a crack at it.
