There are some great games you can play offline with Xbox Game Pass.
Xbox Game Pass is a great deal that lets you play a wide range of great games. And once you’ve downloaded them, you can play them even when you’re not online.
That is, as long as the device you’re playing on is set as your home Xbox in the personalization settings and the game lets you play offline. The second point is the more difficult one, since sometimes even single-player games need to be connected to the internet. There are, however, a lot of games that don’t require you to be online for no reason. Here are some of the best Game Pass games.
Assassin’s Creed Origins
AC Origins is true to its name because it takes place at the beginning of the Assassin’s Creed story and shows how the first Assassins Brotherhood came to be. You follow one of the people who made it, Bayek of Siwa, as he searches for the person who killed his son.
It’s an open-world role-playing game set in Ancient Egypt, which makes it a great place to play in. Most of the game is spent climbing, working puzzles, and fighting close up from a third-person perspective.
Ori And The Blind Forest
In Ori and the Blind Forest, you play as Ori, a small white spirit who is followed by Sein, a creature that has the power of the Spirit Tree. Their goal is to bring the forest back to life after a terrible event.
Most of the time, you do this by finishing puzzles and platforming sections. It’s also a Metroidvania game, so as you move through the forest, you’ll do a lot of exploration and going backwards.
Mass Effect Legendary Edition
The Mass Effect Legendary Edition has all the DLCs for the original Mass Effect series. So, the collection lets you see all of Commander Shepard’s growth from a talented human fighter to the galaxy’s only hope against The Reapers.
Each game is a little different, but all of them let you shoot from behind cover and use guns and special skills to kill your enemies. Outside of battle, you have a lot of choices to make that can have a big effect on the story and how you get along with other characters.
In many ways, the FPS game Doom from 2016 is like the games from the 1990s. This starts with the story, which isn’t as complicated as you might think from a new game. You take charge of an unnamed, powerful space marine who fights the forces of Hell when they come to Mars.
The fights happen very quickly. As you move around the battlefield killing every monster you see, you never stop moving. You have a lot of tools, from shotguns to rocket launchers to chainsaws, that you can use to do this.
A Plague Tale: Requiem
A Plague Story: Requiem takes place in France in the 1400s. So, it’s a time when lots of people are dying from the Black Plague. Still, Amicia and her little brother Hugo have more problems than just that. Because little Hugo has special skills, the Inquisition is also after the two kids.
So, throughout Drive Mad game, you have to avoid getting killed by both forces and plague rats. The best way to avoid getting killed by troops is to be quiet, but you can fight if you have to. You have to avoid the rats at all costs, which is usually done by solving tasks.
Wolfenstein: The New Order
Wolfenstein is one of the few shows from the 1980s that is still going strong today. Still, The New Order is a bit different from the other titles. In an alternate past where the Nazis won World War II and pretty much took over the world, the game still tells a similar but more in-depth story.
But B.J. Blazkowicz and his friends in the resistance still fight against the enemy that seems impossible to beat. All of the tasks are cleverly made, and you play as B.J. You can either shoot your way through them or try to sneak past them.
Yakuza 0 is a game that comes before the other games in the Yakuza series. In it, you play as Kiryu and Majima, the two main characters. Both of them work in different parts of Japan, but they end up in the same fight. Different Yakuza clans are going to war over a valuable piece of land, which is what the conflict is about. It’s a very interesting story.
There are a lot of silly but fun side missions and games that go with the deep story. As for the fights, they are a lot like third-person beat ’em ups. You can beat up groups of enemies at once with your fists, feet, and any tools you find.
Persona 5 Royal
In Persona 5 Royal, the main characters can go into a supernatural world made up of people’s deepest wishes. With this power, they can go into the minds of people who are bad and force them to change. The whole point is to get rid of all the bad people in the world.
Each bad person’s mind is their palace, which is more or less like a prison. Your team goes there to look around and fights the monsters that live there in turn-based battles. Outside of these mansions, the game lets you live the life of a teenager through simulations of everyday life.
