Microsoft has unveiled the titles set to be made available to Xbox Game Pass subscribers in February, including Crackdown 3, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and more.

Crackdown 3 is obviously the brand-spanking-newest of the bunch, and joins (as is the case for all Microsoft first-party titles) Xbox Game Pass the same day it launches for purchases, on February 15th. For those keeping track, Crackdown 3 is also Xbox Play Anywhere offering and is Xbox One X Enhanced.

Before the arrival of Crackdown, however, February 7th sees a triple-whammy of games arriving as part of the Game Pass service. Shadow of the Tomb Raider - the third and final instalment in Lara Croft's rebooted trilogy - is joined by the first season of Telltale's The Walking Dead series, and tricks-and-flips-based arcade rider Pumped BMX Pro. That's followed by delightful colour-spreading action adventure de Blob on Valentine's Day, February 14th.

However, that's not quite it for Xbox Game Pass this month. The Xbox One X enhanced Batman: Return to Arkham joins the service on February 21st, offering access to developer Rocksteady's superb bat-duo, Arkham Asylum and Arkham City.

For those intrigued by Xbox Game Pass but currently not subscribed, there's a 14-day free trial period, and a single month's subscription will cost Ł1 instead of the usual Ł7.99 right now.
