The team behind the Xbox Game Pass Twitter account are teasing the addition of a new game to the service, which many believe could be Square Enix’s upcoming co-op RPG Outriders.
Once again, we have a faux email from Melissa McGamepass, which talks about a new game being confirmed for Xbox Game Pass before asking if “anyone else has noticed a mysterious signal appearing in the distance lately, or am I the anomaly in this situation?”
In Outriders, you venture to the planet of Enoch to help colonise the world but are soon caught up in an electrical storm known as The Anomaly, which gives you extraordinary powers. After being put into cryogenic sleep and waking 30 years later, you are tasked with searching for a mysterious signal and saving humanity. Going by this brief synopsis of the game, the theory that Outriders could be joining Xbox Game Pass doesn’t seem so far-fetched.
We’ll likely hear if Outriders is joining Xbox Game Pass at Square Enix’s digital showcase, Square Enix Presents, on March 18th.
