Creepy atmospheric platformer Little Nightmares 2 is available now on PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. Is it free for Xbox Game Pass and Game Pass Ultimate members on those platforms, though? Here’s the need-to-know on a Little Nightmares 2 Game Pass release for PC and Xbox consoles.
Is Little Nightmares 2 on Game Pass for console (Xbox One and Series X|S)?
XGP often earns praise as a service that provides great value for money, and giving subscribers Little Nightmares 2 at launch would be a great way to deliver. As fans know, however, not all new titles make a triumphant release day debut in Game Pass. But, is that the case with Little Nightmares 2 from Tarsier and Bandai Namco?
Xbox users can play Little Nightmares 2 for free via the downloadable demo. The full game could come to Game Pass in the future, or potentially Microsoft’s Games with Gold service, as the original Little Nightmares did. For now, however, Little Nightmares 2 is not available to download and play via Xbox Game Pass or Game Pass Ultimate on Xbox One and Series X|S.
The first Little Nightmares was free for Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass Ultimate subscribers in January 2021. Since all parties have already shown a willingness to partner and give Xbox users a free entry in the series, it’s very possible that Little Nightmares 2 will follow suit in the future. The timing of this offer essentially made it a marketing tool for the sequel, so history may repeat itself should Little Nightmares 3 ever release.
Is Little Nightmares 2 on Game Pass for PC?
A Little Nightmares 2 Windows 10 version could come to Game Pass for PC and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate in the future. Until then, there’s a free Little Nightmares 2 demo for PC users to enjoy on Steam. At the time of writing, that’s the only way to play without purchasing the game outright; Little Nightmares 2 is not currently available via XGP for PC.
