I feel this is another month of weak line-ups from Xbox, but I am interested to check out Vikings: Wolves of Midgard, as this game has all the elements I love, Vikings, Norse mythology, and a Diablo style RPG, sign me up!
I still feel Xbox are not overly trying with the Games with Gold due to the amazing success of Gamepass and the failed attempt at increasing Games with Gold pricing unsuccessfully, however there is always next month, right?
