As per the tweet, it confirms that Xbox Game Pass for PC is one of the supported formats. That removes any concern that it may not be on the desktop version, so you can go and download it now. That’s sure to be good news to gamers excited for Tunic, the isometric action-adventure game. You play as a fox, exploring caves and forests, with a keen focus on exploration. The key gameplay loop is a series of hidden ‘instruction manual’ collectibles to find, which organically flesh out the story. Finji are otherwise tight-lipped on the story though, so it’s something you’ll have to uncover as you play.
The good news is that playing the game is easier than ever due to its release on Game Pass. Players on console, PC, and cloud will be able to enjoy the game, and it should remain on the service for a while. After some uncertainty, we know for sure that Tunic is already here on Game Pass for PC.
