It was in the back of many fans’ minds when Microsoft announced the acquisition of Bethesda, and the subsequent announcement from the developer’s game catalog coming to Xbox Game Pass that there would be some kind of “exclusivity” in place. And for Tango Frameworks’ The evil inside, which seems to include updates to the game itself.
WCCFTech reports that the Xbox Game Pass version of The evil inside has been updated with new additions that are not in the Steam version, which includes a new first-person mode, new icons for sneaking into first-person mode, a FOV (Field of View) slider, an infinite ammo mode, new camera shake options, resistance settings, and more bug fixes.
The evil inside It is not the only game that has received exclusive updates on the service, since Square Enix NieR: Automata has received fixes and improvements that put it ahead of the Steam version in terms of performance.
It’s not known when (or if) these fixes will make their way to other platforms, but Microsoft’s obvious goal is to get people to buy Xbox Game Pass. Which, to be fair, offers a ridiculous amount of games for gamers, but it also comes down to the fact that you won’t “own” any of the games you play on the service.
Launched in 2014, The evil inside It is also available for PC via Steam, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Windows, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
