Deathloop, Grounded, Valheim lead September's latest Xbox Game Pass additions

Plus Paw Patrol Grand Prix.

Microsoft has dated September's second batch of Game Pass titles for Xbox and PC, including many which were confirmed last week during the Xbox Indie Showcase.

Of course, this batch is undoubtedly headlined by the long-awaited arrival of Deathloop, the full version of Grounded, and indie hit Valheim on PC.

Parents and the young at heart may also be pleased to see new release Paw Patrol Grand Prix is also part of this latest update. The popular pups' take on Mario Kart joins Game Pass next week.

Valheim's coming to Game Pass for PC - but not yet on consoles.

As previously announced, Arkane's acclaimed Deathloop arrives on Xbox and enters Game Pass for cloud, console and PC today. The game was one of the last released by Bethesda before Microsoft snapped the company up, and had a year exclusivity window on PlayStation.

Couch co-op brawler SpiderHeck arrives next week alongside Slime Rancher 2 and storybook adventure Beacon Pines, which I have my eye on. It looks an appropriately creepy/cute experience perfect for when the nights start to draw in.

The month is rounded out by 2D Souls-like Moonscars, management sim Let's Build a Zoo, the full release of Grounded and indie hit Valheim for PC. Oh, yes, and Paw Patrol Grand Prix.

  • Deathloop (Cloud, PC, and Xbox Series X/S) - Available now
  • Hardspace: Shipbreaker (Cloud and Xbox Series X/S) - Available now
  • Beacon Pines (Cloud, Console, and PC) - 22nd September
  • SpiderHeck (Console and PC) - 22nd September

Beacon Pines launches into Game Pass on 22nd September.

And finally, another month's end brings another selection of titles leaving Game Pass. From 30th September, you'll need to wave goodbye to:

  • AI: The Somnium Files (Cloud, Console, and PC)
  • Astria Ascending (Cloud, Console, and PC)
  • Dandy Ace (Cloud, Console, and PC)
