Persona 3 Reload

It’s always exciting to see a game release on Xbox Game Pass on day one, but we’re particularly happy to see Atlus’ ultimate version of Persona 3 come to the service.

Persona 3 Reload has been one of the most highly-anticipated JRPGs of recent times, and it’s now finally here, it hasn’t disappointed. A Metacritic average of 87 on Xbox consoles and 89 on PC is not to be sniffed at.

The original Persona 3 is regarded as having one of the best stories in the series, and P3 Reload faithfully updates it and brings it up to the graphical and gameplay standards of Persona 5 – which arguably has the best action in the series. This sounds like a recipe for success, and it is! As a standalone story, you don’t have to have played any other Persona games to understand and enjoy it either. If there was one game in February’s lineup that we would recommend playing to any Game Pass subscriber, it’d be Reload.

Madden NFL 24

Thanks to Game Pass’ connection with EA Play, you’re treated to loads of entries in some of the best sports games franchises ever, and the latest is Madden 24. While it’s not the strongest entry in the series (as our Madden 24 review attests) this provides football fans with up-to-date teams and player likenesses for the most authentic NFL gaming experience.

With loads of different game modes for both solo players, and those wanting to challenge others online or with local multiplayer, Madden 24 doesn’t disappoint on the content front. If you’re not an NFL fan, then there isn’t much we can do to convince you that this is a game you should play. However, if you are – or you’re interested in getting into the sport – you’ve now got Madden 24 waiting for you in your Game Pass library.

Resident Evil 3

The Resident Evil series is responsible for many of the best horror games ever, and Game Pass continues to go Resi mad in 2024. Last month, the epic remake of Resident Evil 2 was added to the service, and now in February we’re getting the remake of the third game too.

Resident Evil 3 follows Jill Valentine as she battles through what remains of Raccoon City, taking down zombies and solving puzzles in a compact but excellent six-hour story. While sprawling, 100-hour RPGs are all well and good, having shorter, punchier experiences like RE3 is just as important. Whether you’re a fan of horror games or not, pick it up, scare yourself silly for an evening or two, and enjoy yourself. It might not be the most revered entry in the Resi series, but it’s certainly worth a play.

Tales of Arise

P3 Reload and Tales of Arise in one month? JRPG fans sure are eating good.

Arguably the best entry in the Tales series, Arise is a must-play RPG. While its overall narrative of ‘two protagonists from rival warring worlds come together in the name of peace’ sounds a bit generic, it’s anything but. It’s an incredibly deep adventure that is only elevated by Arise’s excellent combat. For fans of the genre, it’s a must-play – if you’ve got the time to complete its roughly 40-hour story.

As you can see, February’s lineup of new Xbox Game Pass games really does add some excellent titles to the already bulging library. However, as with any monthly lineup, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows – there are some games leaving the service as well.

The games leaving Game Pass in February are:

  • Galactic Civilizations III (PC) – February 15
  • Opus: Echo of Starsong (Console, Cloud, and PC) – February 15

Next month’s new Game Pass games

There are currently four games that we know are coming to Xbox Game Pass in March. They are:

  • Warhammer 40K: Boltgun (Console, Cloud, and PC) – March 5
  • MLB The Show 24 – March 19, day one launch
  • Lightyear Frontier Early Access – March 19, day one launch
  • Open Roads – March 28, day one launch

March is already shaping up nicely, with three day one launch additions to the service. Open Roads was initially meant to hit Game Pass in February, but was delayed by a few weeks, so will arrive next month instead. Lightyear Frontier is a cozy new farming sim that will be hit with Stardew Valley fans. And baseball fans will be excited to see MLB The Show 24 joining Game Pass at launch.
