Game Pass Month January continues with the releases of Frostpunkt and Sword Art Online. Frostpunk is a construction simulation with survival elements, in which warmth means life and every decision has its price. As the leader of the last civilized society on earth, players have an all-important task: to guide the inhabitants of a city and prepare them for a life in an icy, harsh wasteland.

In Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet, on the other hand, players are protagonists of a new story and meet old and new faces from the Sword Art Online universe. The game is about weapons, skills and plenty of action.
