Wanted Dead Game Pass

Wanted: Dead is a stylish love letter to the 6th generation of consoles with love for Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive fans, so if you had an Xbox or PlayStation 2 back in the day, this might be up your alley. Wanted: Dead is graphically closer to the current generation, and the stylish hardcore shooter and hack ‘n slash gameplay is an appealing mix for many players. But people might wonder, is this high-octane action game available on Xbox Game Pass, or is Wanted: Dead one you’ll have to buy Day One?

Is Wanted: Dead on Game Pass Now or in the Future?
