Microsoft to Showcase Indie Games Coming to Xbox Game Pass via New ‘Direct’ Style Event

Microsoft planning a new streaming event called [email protected] Game Pass on March 26 at 9 a.m. PDT. Based on its description, it sounds like something that should resemble the Nindies Nintendo Direct.

In a press release by Microsoft, it was announced that games such as Afterparty, Void Bastards, and Supermarket Shriek will be featured during the stream. This stream will also feature the creative team behind Afterparty, Night School Studio.

The Xbox Game Pass was announced in February 2017 and released that June to the public. Since then there have been over 100 games released on the platform, indie and AAA titles alike.

Notable indie games released on the Xbox Game Past are Wasteland 2, Layers of Fear and We Happy Few. This will be Microsoft’s first stream completely dedicated to indie games and developers.

Microsoft has described the Game Pass as a great success since being released in 2017, increasing player’s total time gaming on the Xbox One by 20% and total games played by 40%.

To watch the first ever episode of [email protected] Game Pass, you can view it on the Xbox Youtube channel.
