The acclaimed remasters of Day of the Tentacle, Full Throttle, and Grim Fandango from Double Fine come to Xbox Game Pass starting next week.
Known for their timeless humor and point-and-click gameplay, LucasArts’ acclaimed titles like Day of the Tentacle, Grim Fandango, and Full Throttle defined an entire genre in the years since their release. In the wake of LucasArts’ closure, Double Fine Productions brought all three games back for a new generation in the past few years, with the three remade games coming to Xbox Game Pass for everyone to enjoy next week.
Developer Double Fine Productions has announced that the three recent remasters of these classic adventure titles–Day of the Tentacle, Grim Fandango, and Full Throttle–will be coming to Xbox Game Pass subscribers on October 29, 2020. After their initial release on other platforms such as PS4 and PC, their debut on Game Pass marks the first time that the LucasArts classics will be available to Xbox console owners.

According to Double Fine, all three games will be playable through Game Pass on PC and Android devices (through xCloud) alongside Xbox consoles, which seems to indicate that they’ll be playable on Xbox One and Xbox Series X/Series S once they release. Game Pass Ultimate subscribers will be able to stream the games to PC or Android devices for on-the-go play, which should work well for these 3 story-driven games.
Double Fine Productions was acquired last year by Microsoft to become one of its many first-party development studios, so the addition of its past games to Xbox Game Pass makes a lot of sense. In addition to these three, Brutal Legend is also currently available on Game Pass, which gives a good incentive for players to discover the studio’s quirky sense of humor and charm.
