Six new games are heading to Xbox this week, including Two Point Campus joining Xbox Game Pass, as well as the arrival of hotly anticipated indie title, Cult of the Lamb.

It's a fairly quiet week, with just six new games on the way, but there's some great stuff in there — Cult of the Lamb is one of the TA team's most anticipated indies of the year (and we already have the achievement list), Two Point Campus is another great get for Game Pass, and Arcade Paradise looks to be a nostalgia-fuelled blast from the past.
