Destiny 2, Halo 3: ODST, and more joining Xbox Game Pass this month
We’re now heading into the second half of September, and that means the second announcement of games coming soon to Xbox Game Pass. Things are a little different this time around though, as from here on out these monthly lists will also include games coming to Project xCloud, now known as Xbox Cloud Gaming, through your Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. Incoming games include Destiny 2, including both Forsaken and Shadowkeep expansions, Halo 3: ODST, and more.
Also, there are a handful of games set to leave the service, so make sure and play any you’re interested in before they’re gone.
You can check out all the titles coming soon to Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Cloud Gaming below:
Company of Heroes (PC) – September 17
The follow-up to the highest rated RTS of all time, Company of Heroes 2 is an acclaimed blend of strategy and tactics will test players’ knowledge of real-world combat.

Halo 3: ODST (Cloud & PC) – September 22
Play as an Orbital Drop Shock Trooper (ODST) and explore the war-ravaged streets of New Mombasa as you attempt to piece together the Covenant’s motivations for invading the city. As an ODST, you don’t have the firepower or the overshields to go head-to-head with Elites, Brutes, and Hunters – so use stealth and hit-and-run tactics to eliminate threats and sneak behind enemy lines. That’s not all though, as ODST Firefight is joining The Master Chief Collection on console and PC for the first time, with online matchmaking, dedicated servers, and new custom game modes! Grab some friends and hop into the fan-favorite mode as you take out wave after wave of Covenant invaders across 10 legacy maps.
Night in the Woods (Cloud, Xbox, & PC) – September 24
Join college dropout Mae Borowski as she returns home to the crumbling former mining town of Possum Springs, seeking to resume her aimless former life and reconnect with the friends she left behind.

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 (Cloud & Xbox) – September 24
Sequel to the critically acclaimed Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide. Fight together with your friends against the forces of Chaos and Skaven in this epic 4-player co-op game set in the Warhammer Fantasy Battles world.
