X018: PUBG, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, Ori and the Blind Forest sequel, and more are coming to Xbox Game Pass

Just in time for the holidays, Microsoft announced at its X018 fan event over the weekend that 16 new games are being added to its like-Netflix-but-for-games Xbox Game Pass catalogue, plus a new mobile app.
Besides PUBG and Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, Moon Studios’ dreamy Metroidvania platformer Ori and the Blind Forest Ori is also on the menu, and its sequel, Ori and the Will o’ the Wisps, will be served up on Game Pass alongside its retail launch sometime next year.
The list also includes a number of ID@Xbox and other indies, with the cel-shaded space pirate strategy FPS Void Bastards from BioShock and System Shock 2 director Jonathan Chey perhaps the most intriguing, next to eccentric turn-based tactical XCOM-’em-up Mutant Year Zero, creepy open world survival thriller Pathologic 2, and cult-popular puzzle platformer Thomas Was Alone.
You can use the new Xbox Game Pass app out now on iOS and Android to browse games and remotely queue installations, assuming you have instant-on enabled on your console, so that’s super convenient too.
