The Final Station
The world is over. But it’s not quite over for you… at least, not yet. And now that you’ve got thousands of tons of locomotive at your disposal, ready to take you as far down the tracks as you have fuel to feed it, you’ve got the definite advantage over the infected hordes. This is The Final Station. The real question is whether you’ll help the survivors get to their destinations…. or let them die and loot their bodies. Sometimes people can be more trouble than they’re worth. A post-apocalyptic adventure about traveling a dying world on a train – survive for as long as you can by riding the rails, and finding supplies along the way. Infected are ready to stop your progress whenever you exit the train to look for supplies. Maintain your train in operating condition and craft valuable items from the resources you scavenge. Pick up survivors along the way, gaining perks (and hindrances) for your troubles.
If the cold, wind, sleet, and/or snow is hampering the outdoorsperson in you this winter, we may just have the remedy with Dovetail’s Euro Fishing. It is exactly as it sounds – a digital escape to a wide range of different, calming natural outposts. Take a few minutes to acquaint yourself with your rod and casting, before you tackle some of the monster fish that live beneath the surface. Once you have discovered your inner angler and start landing trophies, be sure to take a screenshot so you don’t end up as just another digital fisherman with a big story of the “one that got away.”
With over 100 great games for one low monthly price, including highly anticipated new games from Microsoft Studios the day they’re released, plus more games added every month – Xbox Game Pass is your ticket to endless play. Thanks for reading March’s Xbox Game Pass update and don’t forget: if you haven’t tried Xbox Game Pass yet, you can play free for 14 days.
For all the latest Xbox news, keep it locked to Xbox Wire. Until next month, game on!
