The Best Adventure Games on Xbox Game Pass

If you have a subscription for the Xbox Game Pass on your Xbox One, you've got tons of great adventure titles right at your fingertips. Let's take a look at the best adventure games available on Xbox Game Pass, including indie hits like Sea of Thieves, action-adventure games like Halo 5: Guardians, and all-times greats like Fallout 3, which has some of the most detailed gameplay and storytelling elements in any game to be released in the past 20 years.

If you've ever wanted to take to the high seas and steal some booty but get seasick and don't really like parrots, Sea of Thieves is the game for you! This immersive action-adventure game lets players scratch their pirate itch by offering up the command of a vessel in a first-person perspective style of gameplay. Players navigate an open world via their very own pirate ship featuring every aspect of maritime piracy you can imagine. If piracy isn't your thing, why not step a little back in time and fire up an Xbox classic with Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic? This amazing entry into the Star Wars franchise details a grand adventure in the Old Republic, long before the days of the Empire. Players can navigate across the galaxy, craft their own lightsabers, and battle against the dark side of the Force!
