Xbox Game Pass | Resident Evil 2 and AC Valhalla are January highlights

Ubisoft, Capcom, Microsoft

2024 started with a bang on Xbox Game Pass. Microsoft released the list of games that will arrive on the service in January 2024 and brings, right away, two major titles. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and the remake of Resident Evil 2 are the main news to arrive on the platform in the coming weeks.

Considered the best recent chapters of the two franchises, the games will be available to all Game Pass subscribers on consoles, PCs and in the cloud. With this, many more people will be able to learn about the murderers’ passage through the Viking period or revisit the Raccoon City disaster.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla arrives in service on January 9th. The Ubisoft game takes place in the 9th century during the Nordic invasions of Europe. It is in this context that we meet Eivor, a Viking warrior who begins to explore the territory that would become England.

It is the last title in the saga to adopt the RPG style and, for this reason, it impresses with the grandeur of the map and the freedom that the player has to do whatever he wants. So you can prepare a few hundred hours to do everything Valhalla has to offer.

Already Resident Evil 2 arrives on Xbox Game Pass the following week, on January 16th. The remake of the classic PlayStation game arrived in 2019 and won over both fans and a completely new audience by very well rescuing the horror essence of the original game while modernizing several aspects, such as gameplay and visuals — as well as some aspects of the story.

In the plot, the player can follow the nightmare of Raccoon City from two perspectives. The first is that of rookie police officer Leon S. Kennedy, who has the worst first day on the job ever, as zombies take over the city. On the other hand, young Claire Redfield needs to dive into this chaos in search of information about her brother’s whereabouts.

But these aren’t the only games coming to Xbox Games Pass in January 2024. Check out what else will be available to subscribers in the first month of 2024.
