February sees another two huge games make their way to the ever-evolving Xbox Game Pass in the form of Shadow Of The Tomb Raider as well as the release of Crackdown 3 in the middle of the month.

After recently adding previous Tomb Raider titles to the subscription service, it was really only a matter of time before we saw the most recent installment grace the library. When you compare the price of the game ordinarily to what Xbox Game Pass is then it does seem like a no-brainer deal.

The only catch is that it doesn’t include any of the DLC available for Shadow Of The Tomb Raider, but with the Game Pass subscription any game featured often offers extra content for a discounted price so you don’t have to pay over the odds for it.

February also sees Crackdown 3 finally release. Not long ago owners of the Game Pass were able to pre-download a portion of the game, though it was only just over 100MB which was obviously never going to hold the full game.

More recently though, an update was available to the pre-install file clocking in at just over 10GB. It was previously guessed (by me nonetheless) that the file size was likely to grow closer to the release date.

Xbox Game Pass has been receiving a whole menagerie of fantastic top titles in recent months from Shadow of Mordor to Mortal Kombat X.

This makes the service much more appealing to potential subscribers as the collection is not just limited to indie titles and smaller developers. Instead, allowing people to play high-profile titles without having to splash out copious amounts of cash all at once.

If you haven’t got Xbox Game Pass at the moment, would the increasing list of Triple-A titles tempt your hand or not? Are there any games which would cause you to subscribe which currently aren’t on the list? Let us know below.
