The Anacrusis is Launching for Xbox Game Pass Next Month

As part of an update from Stray Bombay, the developer of The Anacrusis, it is revealed that the co-op shooter is coming to Xbox Game Pass next month.

For those interested in playing a lot of video games, Xbox Game Pass is arguably one of the best deals on the market. The subscription service comes with over a hundred games, including popular new releases such as Halo Infinite. With new titles being added frequently, gamers have many options regarding what to play. Recently, details were revealed about another upcoming game arriving on the service.

Unveiled during the Summer Games Fest earlier this year, The Anacrusis is a co-op sci-fi shooter with crossplay support for up to 4 players. With the announcement of the upcoming title developed by Stray Bombay, it was revealed that the shooter would be landing on Xbox Game Pass. Unfortunately, the details surrounding the launch of the game had remained unclear. However, it seems that fans are finally getting answers about when they can expect to check out the shooter for themselves.


In a tweet from December 13, Stray Bombay revealed new details about the launch plans for The Anacrusis. In the message, it was announced that the game was coming to early access soon. According to the developer, the co-op shooter will be free as part of Xbox Game Pass on January 13. In addition, the title will release on Steam and the Epic Games Store.

It will be interesting to see fan reception to this game upon release. Following initial footage of the in-development project, some likened the gameplay to the Left 4 Dead series. The similarity shouldn’t be too surprising, considering that development for the game is being led by Chet Faliszek. In addition to working at Valve over the years, he played a part in developing the previously mentioned Left 4 Dead games.

In regards to The Anacrusis, the developer claimed that the initial early access period will be different than many other games. “This is a really weird early access,” Faliszek said. He noted that this initial version of the title will contain weekly challenges and has meta progression. According to Faliszek, the goal is to use this time following January 13 to see what works and what needs to be addressed moving forward.

It’s doubtlessly exciting for many Xbox fans to see numerous games moving to Xbox Game Pass. The Anacrusis is just one of many titles coming to the subscription service in the near future. Over the coming week, 12 games are arriving on Xbox Game Pass, including Among Us, Aliens: Fireteam Elite, and Mortal Kombat 11. Given the rate at which titles continue to be announced, it seems like the number of games available on the service is only going to increase in the future.

The Anacrusis will release for PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S on January 13.
