Microsoft has announced the first wave of Xbox Game Pass titles to join the service’s library in 2024. Available immediately on all platforms is Close to the Sun, a first-person horror adventure game that originally came out in 2019, but you won’t have to wait long for more: Hell Let Loose, the large-scale World War 2 first-person shooter game, is set to follow on January 4, 2024, in what should be a huge win for the game’s community, as fresh cannon fodder is always more than welcome.

Fans of blockbuster titles need not fret, however, as Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is scheduled to join Xbox Game Pass on January 9, 2024, bringing Eivor’s adventure to the subscription service, and Resident Evil 2 Remake is coming to the library on January 16, 2024, for a dose of horror.
