Tunic, the Zelda-inspired adventure game is now available on Xbox Game Pass. While Tunic was originally always meant to launch today, the original plan was to sell the game for $29,99/R494. However, Microsoft surprise dropped Tunic on Xbox Game Pass meaning subscribers can download and play this fantastic adventure title for free*.
Microsoft announced the news during its [email protected] live stream (which I had no idea was happening in the first place). The Fenji-published game was not only released after the stream but also landed on the Xbox Game Pass service at the same time.
If you don’t own Xbox Game Pass, Tunic will cost you R494. The game is available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC. There’s also a Mac version available too.
You also shouldn’t sleep on this amazing game. Originally announced in 2015 as Secret Legend, Tunic was rebranded in 2017 and has finally been released to gamers around the world. The top-down adventure game blends simple combat with diverse puzzles to deliver a challenging yet nostalgic experience.
Check out the trailer down below and make sure you set this to download asap.
