Is Back 4 Blood on Xbox Game Pass?

Upon release, Back 4 Blood will be available on the Xbox Game Pass.

The rotating subscription system sees a whole host of games become available to Xbox users, cutting down the price players have to pay to play all of the newest games.

Back 4 Blood will retail for $60 (£50), and considering the Game Pass is $10 (£8) per month, that’s quite the saving.

Back 4 Blood not on Game Pass/failed to sign in

Upon release, some players have reported that the game isn’t appearing on their Game Pass, or that they’re greeted with an error message when trying to sign in.

The simple fix for this is to run the game via the Microsoft Store, which is available in the “Start” menu on PCs. For consoles, you’ll want to hard restart – holding down the power button for 10 seconds – if you’re having issues.

Where to buy Xbox Game Pass

The Xbox Game Pass can be purchased via Xbox’s official website for both PC and Xbox consoles. Sadly, PlayStation players cannot take advantage of the deal.

The pass comes in two tiers:

  • Standard: Includes access to hundreds of games, as well as Xbox exclusive games on release.
    • PC players can also get their first month for $1 (£1.)
  • Ultimate: Everything that comes with the standard edition, but also includes Xbox Live Gold, the ability to play games on Cloud and free in-game content.

Back 4 Blood will be available on the Game Pass from release day on 12 October.
