The first wave of games to join Xbox Game Pass in October 2023 included Gotham Knights and Forza Motorsport. Now, Microsoft has announced the second wave of games for the month. Starting today, October 17, Like a Dragon: Ishin! will be available on Cloud, Console, and PC. On October 19, F1 Manager 2023 (Cloud, Console, and PC) will be available, allowing gamers to manage every aspect of their chosen F1 team. Next week, on October 24, is Cities: Skylines II (PC), a city simulation game we have on our list of the top games to play in October. However, be aware that you may encounter some performance issues on PC.

As Halloween approaches, Dead Space (Cloud, PC, and Xbox Series X|S) will be available on Xbox Game Pass via EA Play on October 26. Also available that day is Frog Detective: The Entire Mystery. The game, already available on PC Game Pass, will also become accessible on Cloud and Console. Additionally, Mineko’s Night Market (Cloud, Console, and PC) will be available on October 26.
