Tomorrow, April 17, Orcs Must Die from Robot Entertainment! 3 (Cloud, console and PC) is coming to Game Pass. The orcs must die! 3 received a score of 7/10 in the IGN evaluation. We said it was “very familiar to players of the second game, but still a fun and wacky action/tower-defense challenge.”

A day later, on April 18, EA Sports NHL 24 (Console) launched on Game Pass Ultimate via EA Play, just in time for the Stanley Cup Playoffs. “NHL 24’s new gameplay features reinvigorate the on-ice action, but its collection of unenhanced game modes has become increasingly boring with each passing year,” we said in NHL 24’s review.

IGN gave Have A Nice Death an 8/10 in our review: “Have a Nice Death is a punishing but satisfying roguelike with extremely difficult boss fights, but it could be a little less stingy with long-term progression.
