LucasArts games on Xbox
Taking into account that they are legendary games that you have to play yes or yes, on Xbox they have thought that such titles should be present in their Xbox Game Pass library, so that is just what they have done, incorporating three classics of the Tim Schafer himself:
- Day of Tentacle: Direct sequel to the mythical Maniac mansion, in Day of tentacle We will have to put ourselves in the shoes of three characters each more peculiar to put an end to the evil plans of the purple tentacle, which aims to rule the world by changing events in history with the help of a time machine.
- Full throttle: Ben is the leader of a motorcycle gang called “Los Turones”, who after rejecting an economic proposal from the only motorcycle manufacturer in the country, finds himself involved in serious problems that he must solve to save his neck and that of his colleagues.
- Grim fandango: You are Manny Calavera, a funeral agent who must uncover a network of corruption, lies and crimes that prevent the post-mortem journey of the insured from being carried out in the best possible way. With an aesthetic based on film noir and the culture of Mexican mythology and its belief in death, the game will provide us with hilarious scenes and a large number of fantastic puzzles.
Xbox Game Pass takes forever
With the addition of these three LucasArts remasters, Xbox Game Pass further expands its offer with an extremely interesting selection of games, so those interested will only have to be subscribed to the service to be able to download all three games for free.

When can they be downloaded?
Of course, we will have to wait a little longer to do it, since the three titles will not appear in the catalog until the next October 29th, being available on both Xbox and PC. At this rate, more than one player will have already run out of free space on the console’s hard drive, something that will be especially problematic on Xbox Series X, since, as we have commented previously, in order to enjoy maximum speed of loading and processing, we must use either the integrated unit or the official expansion cards.
Meanwhile, on Xbox One you can continue to use external USB hard drives, and if loading times don’t take too much sleep, you can always plug in and start playing right away on your future Xbox Series X, as the game library it will be perfectly accessible just by connecting the hard drive that you have been using until now.
