Crusader Kings 3 and Zero Escape arrive on Game Pass this month


Crusader Kings 3 and Zero Escape: The Nonary Games are among the new additions arriving on the PC Game Pass subscription service in March. The full list also includes the day one launch of cowboy horror RPG Weird West.

Game Pass is most useful to me when it’s offering up games I’m interested in but not so convinced by that I feel ready to spend money on them. Zero Escape: The Nonary Games fits the bill. It’s a visual novel filled with life-and-death puzzles and Katharine called it the “top bestest best visual novel of all time, fact, no recounts.” That’s high praise, but I frequently hate visual novels and so haven’t taken the plunge. Its appearance on PC Game Pass makes that easier.

I imagine others might feel similarly about Crusader Kings 3. It’s grand strategy game with deep systems and an intimidating interface, beneath which lies a juicy, soap opera world of royal families, romance and betrayal. If it’s scared you off before now, this is a good chance to give it a go. It’s available on PC Game Pass now (and due to arrive on consoles later this month).

Weird West, meanwhile, is an old school RPG from WolfEye Games, the new studio from Arkane founder Raphael Colantonio. Nate got very excited by a preview buiild, describing it as a mashup of Desperadoes and Dishonored. It’s a day one release on Game Pass at the end of the month.

Here’s the full list of games coming to PC Game Pass before the end of March:

  • Shredders – March 17th
  • The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk: The Amulet of Chaos – March 17th
  • Zero Escape: The Nonary Games – March 22nd
  • Norco – March 24th
  • Crusader Kings III – March 29th
  • Weird West – March 31st

While the games leaving the service this month are Madden NFL 20, Narita Boy, Shaddow Warrior 2, and in early April, Destiny 2: Beyond Light, Shadowkeep, and Forsaken.
