Resident Evil: will the entire saga land on Xbox Game Pass?
An intriguing rumor that appeared a few hours ago on Reddit caught our attention: it seems that Microsoft and Capcom have plans to bring all Resident Evil episodes on Xbox Game Pass, with the exception, of course, of the brand new Village.
According to indiscretion, the “big announcement” is scheduled for tomorrow, Tuesday, May 4, and will thus anticipate the imminent arrival of the eighth chapter. The leaked online list shows all the major episodes of the survival horror saga, including Resident Evil: Code Veronica, the remake of the first chapter released on the Nintendo GameCube and the two episodes of the Revelations spinoff series.
(Rumor) All Resident Evil games (except RE: Village), Stardew Valley and FIFA 21 will be re-added to #XboxGamePass this week. This will be announced this Tuesday. 👀🧂

As if that wasn’t enough, the next wave of free games might also include Stardew valley, the RPG farmer created by game designer Eric Barone. The “little” indie could soon debut on Xbox Game Pass, probably on consoles and PC.
