Xbox Game Pass is adding yet another game in January, this time with social deduction game Project Winter releasing on both console and PC.
Xbox Game Pass is adding a range of great-looking new games in January 2021 to kick off the new year. Major games including fighting game Injustice 2, the ARPG Torchlight 3, and the haunting adventure game What Remains of Edith Finch will be available this month. One other January addition appears to have snuck under the radar, however. Developer Other Ocean Interactive announced that its social deduction game Project Winter arrives on Xbox Game Pass later this month.
Project Winter, for those who aren't familiar, is a social deduction game not entirely unlike Among Us. It's a multiplayer game in which players work not just to survive but to root out anonymous traitors in the team's midst. Rather than being set in space, however, Project Winter is set in a desolate frozen wasteland. And rather than perform randomized mini-games, Project Winter is driven by survival mechanics, exploration, and teamwork.
The game will feature a robust feature set, too. 8 players will be able to participate in a given match, and with cross-platform play supporting both PC and console players will be able to find their friends easily. Also available via a premium will be Project Winter's first expansion, Blackout. The expansion adds new traitor roles, as well as new survivors.
According to Project Winter developer Other Ocean, the game will officially launch on Xbox Game Pass on January 26. It'll be available not just on Xbox Game Pass for console, but on Xbox Game Pass for PC, too. As noted, it supports crossplay so all Project Winter players can play together. Add it to the list of awesome Xbox Game Pass additions in January.
Video games are much more fun with a group of friends, and this has held true for a very long time. While gaming has very much evolved since the early days of couch co-op, there are still plenty of games that offer that experience as well as the ability to play online with friends. Games such as Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Borderlands 3, and Fortnite offer endless hours of co-op fun with friends and online players.
The memories made when playing co-op are some that will live with players forever, and it's great that games are still embracing these experiences with all kinds of new features such as cross-play that make it easier to play with anyone. Here are 10 endlessly fun co-op games on PC.
Released in 2019, Borderlands 3 is still a great game to play with friends and has plenty of content to last until the whole summer. There are millions of millions of guns in the game, with unique options tied to each different one the player gets. There are a ton of side quests, as well as a new game plus mode that allows the player to replay through the story mode several times on a harder setting. The game also offers both free and paid DLC that can be purchased individually or with the season pass.
