Microsoft have announced nine new games coming to Xbox Game Pass for PC and they covered pretty much all the bases here - from strategies like Age of Wonders: Planetfall and Europa Universalis IV, to Metro Exodus' excellent predecessor Metro: Last Light Redux.

First up is Age of Wonders: Planetfall is a delicious 4X turn-based strategy that was launched by Paradox and Triumph Studios only a few months ago. Leading one of six colourful factions, players will be utilising their specialities in a bid to uncovered what caused the collapse of the Star Union.

When it comes to strategies, Europa Universalis franchise is undoubtedly a giant and its fourth instalment is sure to strike a chord with the fans of the genre. We're talking about another Paradox's game, so it should really be a no-brainer. 

Next up is Farming Simulator 17, where you'll be old-McDonalding your way through North America. Giants Software's simulator lets you drive more than 250 vehicles, some of them with official branding. 

You've surely played or at least saw Metro Exodus but if you missed the earlier instalments, Xbox Game Pass will fix that. Metro: Last Light Redux also has you playing as Artyom, although most of it is in the titular metro tunnels. It's still quite the looker too.

The list of games coming to Xbox Game Pass for PC also has My Friend Pedro, a lovely and quirky shoot 'em up, Faeria, a trading card game, and Demon's Tilt, which describes itself as a tribute to '90s video pinball games, with all the over-the-top-ness you can think of.

The final two games in the offer are Human: Fall Flat, a hilarious puzzler by No Brakes Games that you can also play in co-op, and Pathologic 2, Ice-Pick Lodge's open-world horror game.
