Gris, A Plague Tale: Innocence, and Children of Morta will join the Xbox Game Pass for PC library in the coming weeks, bringing that collection to a total of 180. Microsoft is also, again, offering a $1 promotion for first-time subscribers, with a single buck giving them the first three months.

Xbox Game Pass for PC, still in beta, launched during E3 2019. Access to its lineup of PC titles is included with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, a new subscription also announced at E3 2019 (and which also bundles in Xbox Live Gold). Ordinarily, Xbox Game Pass for PC is $4.99 a month; Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is $14.99 a month.

Gris was the Games for Impact Award winner at The Game Awards 2019 in December. It’s a puzzle-platformer with a watercolor design, a serene soundtrack, and other meditative motifs.

A Plague Tale: Innocence was likewise a Game Awards 2019 nominee (for best narrative). The action-adventure game is set in the late Middle Ages, during the time of the second bubonic plague pandemic. The hero Amicia and her little brother Hugo are on the run from the Inquisition and struggling to survive in a deadly time.

Children of Morta launched on Windows PC in September. It’s a roguelike action RPG in which players take members of a family into a series of procedurally generated dungeons to clear them of the evil dwelling there.
