The Best FPS Games On Xbox Game Pass

2 days 22 hours ago

First-person shooter fans have plenty to pick from on Xbox Series X and Xbox One, especially if you subscribe to Xbox Game Pass. A Game Pass Ultimate subscription unlocks some of the best modern first-person shooters in recent years, including multiple games from the Doom, Wolfenstein, and Battlefield franchises. Since the sheer number of options can be overwhelming on Game Pass, we decided to round up the best FPS games on Game Pass.

There are multiple subscription plans for Game Pass, but if you like first-person shooters, you should definitely get Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, the $15 per month tier that gives you online multiplayer access as well as the PC, Xbox, and Cloud Gaming libraries.

Many of the games on this list are playable on Xbox, PC, and mobile devices thanks to Xbox Cloud Gaming. Since the Xbox Game Pass library sees changes each month--with new games added and old games removed--our list of the best Xbox Game Pass FPS games will change over time as well. For now, here are our favorite first-person shooters to play on Game Pass.

If nothing here catches your eye, be sure to check out our list of every game on Xbox Game Pass, along with our roundup of the best overall games on Game Pass.

The Anacrusis

The Anacrusis is a cooperative shooter that borrows DNA from Left 4 Dead. You’ll fight off waves of haunting enemies as you work your way through a gigantic spaceship, and a variety of unique perks and weaponry help keep things interesting.


Back 4 Blood

While The Anacrusis borrowed ideas from Left 4 Dead, Back 4 Blood is practically its twin. The core experience is a cooperative romp through undead hordes, although a competitive mode is available that pits a team of survivors against special Ridden. Toss in a cool card-based upgrade system and a “Game Director” that changes up the action based on your play style, and it’s easy to see why the shooter is one of the better Left 4 Dead-likes around.


Battlefield 3

(Xbox, PC)

It’s starting to show its age, but Battlefield 3 is still worth checking out. Plus, it isn't too challenging to find a match still. Gigantic maps, easy-to-understand class skills, destructible environments, and hundreds of unlockables mean there’s always a reason to dive back in for another match. There’s also a solo campaign that should play, too.


Battlefield: Bad Company 2

(Xbox, PC)

Bad Company 2 offers a similar online experience to Battlefield 3, although its solo experience is definitely more impressive. It trades ultra-serious tones for a comical narrative that really shines. Destruction was also a huge part of the game, as you could blow apart every bit of your environment to help take down your foes. The first Bad Company game is also on Game Pass. We chose the sequel here, but we'd recommend the original, too.


Battlefield 1

(Xbox, PC, Cloud)
