Top-rated puzzle game joins PC Game Pass as a surprise addition

Sean Carey - September 6th 2022

Surprise! Puzzle game Opus Magnum from developer Zachtronics has joined PC Game Pass out of the blue and is now available to play with the PC subscription service.

It appears developer Zachtronics is slowly adding most of its games to Game Pass. Opus Magnum is the fourth game from the developer to join PC Game Pass in recent months, following Exapunks, Last Call BBS, and Shenzhen I/O.

Opus Magnum joins PC Game Pass

Opus Magnum is the latest open-ended puzzle game from Zachtronics, the creators of SpaceChem, Infinifactory, and Shenzhen I/O. Design and build machines that assemble potions, poisons, and more using the alchemical engineer's most advanced tool: the transmutation engine!
Opus Magnum is an open-ended puzzle game where you're tasked with designing, building, and optimising machines that execute alchemical processes using a number of different components. It first launched on Steam back in 2017, and it received excellent reviews from both critics and players. On Metacritic, Opus Magnum has a Metascore score of 90 (albeit from just four reviews) and sits with an 'Overwhelmingly Positive' rating on Steam from nearly 4,000 reviews.

At the moment, we don't have the Opus Magnum achievements, but we are expecting them to scan in soon.
