The new role-playing game coming soon to PC and consoles worldwide on January 13 is no ordinary launch. It is the One Piece Odyssey releasing as part of the 25th Anniversary of the legendary franchise that has accumulated feverish fans across the globe.
The game will be an open-world adventure with free roam for players across several story arcs and worlds that are beloved by the Straw Hat. You will be starting out as Luffy, before linking up with the rest of the crew one by one as you find them.
Players who are used to Xbox are wondering whether One Piece Odyssey will be available on Game Pass as a large collection of games usually are, including a grand 2023 lineup. In that regard, the following guide will help players in understanding whether the game is on Game Pass and the more relevant information about the same.
One Piece Odyssey: Will it be available on Game Pass?
Players who have been regular users of Game Pass will definitely carry an added sense of curiosity regarding this issue. Unfortunately, One Piece Odyssey will not be a part of Game Pass with Bandai Namco Entertainment (the developers) and ILCA stating that the game will not join the big star-studded lineup.
That means Xbox players with a Game Pass subscription will have to buy the game nonetheless. Nevertheless, there is some glimmer of hope in this regard as several games do eventually join up on Game Pass over time.
These have included the likes of Soul Caliber VI and Scarlet Nexus, both of which are offerings of Bandai Namco. Although, there is still no news of One Piece World Seeker coming to Game Pass anytime soon.
One Piece Odyssey: What to expect from the open world adventure
The Straw Hat gang wash up on the enigmatic Waford island after a storm, and you (Luffy) have to find your partners-in-crime along with taking down opponents and fighting enemies.
There are worlds and activities that will be specific to the characters present in the anime, and while there have been some reservations regarding the nature of the game, the developers have gone out of their way to assure fans that the game will not infringe upon the anime.
Likewise, there are a number of questions that remain unanswered which concern the likes of traveling across multiple domains and how extensive the storyline will be over the course of the game.
Thus, that is all the information we have at this moment surrounding One Piece Odyssey and whether it is on Game Pass or not. That department is bad news for Xbox players, but there is enough hope to expect a great game that will certainly be a true treat for all manga lovers. One Piece has been an integral part of the whole anime establishment, meaning you should have high hopes across the board.
The news of One Piece Odyssey not being on Game Pass is but a minor glitch in the plans of the players who have followed the series over the past two decades and a half.
