Deathloop, Grounded, and Valheim top September’s latest Xbox Game Pass additions

Microsoft has dated the second batch of Game Pass titles for Xbox and PC to September, many of which were confirmed last week during the Xbox Indie Showcase.

Of course, this bundle is undoubtedly headlining with the long-awaited arrival of Deathloop, the full version of Grounded, and indie hit Valheim on PC.

Parents and the young at heart may also be pleased to see that the new Paw Patrol Grand Prix release is also part of this latest update. The popular version of puppies on Mario Kart joins Game Pass next week.

Valheim is coming to Game Pass for PC – but not yet on consoles.

As previously announced, Arkane’s acclaimed Deathloop is coming to Xbox and entering Game Pass for cloud, console, and PC today. The game was one of the last released by Bethesda before Microsoft bought the company, and had a one-year PlayStation exclusivity window.

Co-op couch brawler SpiderHeck arrives next week alongside Slime Rancher 2 and the storybook adventure Beacon Pines, which I have my eye on. It looks like a suitably spooky/cute experience, perfect for when the nights start to roll in.

Rounding out the month are 2D Souls-like Moonscars, management sim Let’s Build a Zoo, the full release of Grounded and indie hit Valheim for PC. Oh, yes, and the Paw Patrol Grand Prix.
