Xbox has officially announced the second wave of video games landing on Xbox Game Pass in September 2022 – including the much-anticipated Xbox release of Deathloop, alongside a number of surprises. The first half of September was jam-packed with new releases including Metal: Hellsinger and Disney Dreamlight Valley, and the second half is similarly stacked.

Deathloop is now available for everyone, and it will be followed by a range of hits – including Valheim, which recently took the Steam charts by storm. In this PC survival adventure game, you’re thrust into a procedurally-generated world where you must craft and fight your way to freedom. It can be played solo, or with up to 10 friends – making it perfect for players who enjoy co-op gameplay.

Also included is Let’s Build a Zoo, one of the most underrated games of 2021. In this theme park simulator, you’re tasked with creating an ethical or completely unethical zoo, where you can choose to hybridise animals for high scores, or treat your flocks with care and attention.
