Xbox Game Pass September Update Includes Disney Dreamlight Valley, Metal: Hellsinger, and Despot's Game

September's first Xbox Game Pass update is here, bringing with it a nice stack of new games, starting with a few day one releases available from today. Among them is life-sim and adventure game hybrid Disney Dreamlight Valley: Founder's Edition, and detailed railway sim, Train Sim World 3.

Dreamlight Valley will be hitting Xbox and PC as an early access version of the free-to-play title, ahead of its full release in 2023, offering a once-idyllic land to explore and return to its former glory by clearing away the Night Thorns. This Founder's Edition comes with exclusive cosmetic items.

Also hitting Game Pass today is open-ended puzzle game Opus Magnum, alongside the extreme weather and high-powered locomotives of Train Sim World 3. Later in the month, meanwhile, you can look forward to RTS title Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation for PC, as well as DC League of Super-Pets, and frantic physics-based racing in You Suck at Parking. GRID Legends is also now available via EA Play, through Game Pass Ultimate.

Tactical roguelike Despot's Game also arrives as a day one Game Pass addition on 15th September, as intense rhythm-based FPS Metal: Hellsinger pits you against fearsome demons through the eight Hells to the strains of heavy metal music. And that's your lot for September's first wave of Xbox Game Pass titles, with more to come with wave two.

As previously noted, eleven games will also be departing Xbox Game Pass from 15th September, so play them while you still can. You'll also find the usual crop of new Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Perks to take advantage of. Take a look below.

  • Was eyeing metal hellsinger so can’t complain about getting it free day one;-)
  • I tried the demo for Metal: Hellsinger and couldn't really get into it, but I'm curious to try the full game. Other than that, zzzzzzzzzzzzz.
  • Imma check out this You Suck At Parking. Hopefully a bit of fun.
  • @1 and 2, I played the demo for Metal: Hellsinger some months ago and was unfortunately disappointed by it.

    The story is meh and it gets quite repetitive quickly. I found that it also wasted one of the major bullet points they promote, which is the talent pool of metal vocalists. You have to get high multiplier chain hit combos for the full compliment of metal music to actually kick in with the talent pool, and if you miss so much as a reload or an enemy, you lose the multiplier and the music runs down to a generic metal riff. It's something that truly sucks the energy and intensity right out of the game. Why that was a design choice, I'll never comprehend.

    The whole time it felt like a bargain basement version of Doom.
