Alien Isolation joins Batman Arkham on Xbox Game Pass tomorrow

Plus: Headlander! Mickey! Walking Dead! Soon.

Microsoft's catalogue of games available to Xbox Game Pass subscribers grows ever stronger this month with the addition of some genuinely top-drawer titles such as Batman Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, as well as Alien Isolation.

Rocksteady's first two Arkham adventures are quite possibly the best superhero games ever made, and they're both included in the Batman: Return to Arkham collection which arrives on Game Pass tomorrow, 21st February.

Joining them is the retro-futuristic Metroidvania Headlander, and the enjoyable Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two.

Next week, the critically-acclaimed sci-fi survival horror Alien Isolation and solid second season of Telltale's The Walking Dead turn up on 28th February.

And that's all on top of the Xbox Game Pass selection added already this month - Telltale's The Walking Dead season one, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, de Blob, Pumped BMX Pro and Crackdown 3.
