Introducing Maquette: A Mind-Bending Addition to Xbox Game Pass!


Welcome, fellow gamers, to the exciting world of Xbox Game Pass! We’ve got some great news for you today. The ever-expanding catalog of Game Pass just got a whole lot more interesting. Get ready to challenge your brain with Maquette, an incredible first-person puzzle game developed by Graceful Decay and published by Annapurna. And guess what? It’s available right now on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Windows Games through Game Pass!

Now, I know what some of you are thinking. “But wait, Maquette was already released earlier this year!” Well, you’re not wrong, my friend. This mind-bending gem made its debut in March 2021 for PS4, PS5, and PC. And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, it’s finally making its way to Xbox. And the cherry on top? Game Pass members can dive right into the puzzling world of Maquette with their subscription! Talk about a win-win!

So, what makes Maquette so special, you ask? Well, imagine exploring intricate puzzles that would make MC Escher raise an eyebrow. That’s exactly what you’ll find in this game. Prepare to have your mind twisted and turned as you navigate through mind-bending creations. And as if that wasn’t enough, Maquette also offers a heartfelt story of “love, loss, and acceptance.” Oh, did I mention that the lead characters, Kenzie and Michael, are voiced by the fantastic real-life couple Bryce Dallas Howard and Seth Gabel? It’s like stepping into an interactive movie!

But that’s not all, my fellow gamers! Game Pass is not holding back this month. Alongside the release of Maquette, brace yourselves for two more awesome titles arriving on July 20th: Figment 2: Creed Valley and The Wandering Village. And there’s even more excitement on the horizon, with a bunch of new games coming later this month. Better check out the full list of Game Pass titles for the remainder of July so you don’t miss a beat. Oh, and keep in mind that Game Pass is bidding farewell to some games soon, including Marvel’s Avengers. So make sure you dive in before they’re gone!

Now, let’s address the elephant in the room. I’m talking about the recent increase in Game Pass prices. I know, I know, nobody likes price hikes. But fear not! Microsoft has also unveiled Xbox Game Pass Core, which is essentially the replacement for Xbox Live Gold. So it’s not all doom and gloom, folks. There’s still plenty of fun to be had!

So, get your Game Pass subscription ready and hop into the mind-bending world of Maquette. With its challenging puzzles, gripping story, and the star-studded voice cast, it’s the perfect addition to your gaming repertoire. Let’s keep the gaming spirit alive and enjoy all the fantastic experiences that Xbox Game Pass has in store for us!
