Xbox Game Pass just added another big survival horror game to the catalog. This first wave of Xbox Game Pass titles for February included the addition of Resident Evil 3. That comes after the previous month, which included access to Resident Evil 2. So, those of you who had finished through the last installment might be keen on giving this next game a chance.
