The launch on Xbox Game Pass of one of the latest free games in the catalog did not go as expected, as after 4 days its campaign is still unplayable for subscribers.
This is CrossfireX , the long-awaited shooter officially launched for the Microsoft home console on February 10 and which has been made available on Xbox Game Pass on the same day.
The title had already been accused of unclear communication , as it was announced that not all campaigns would be playable – a very unusual situation for the subscription service.
Yet, as reported by TheGamer , as of today not even the promised campaign is available for free , causing the understandable ire of community.
At the time of writing this article, it is in fact only possible to access the multiplayer component of the title, which has however been made available as free-to-play for all players.
Due to a bug , the campaign Operation Catalyst is in fact blocked behind paywall for everyone those users who own Xbox Game Pass, who should be able to access it at no additional cost.
The developers responded quickly to the controversy on social media, announcing via tweet that they were aware of the problem and would work to resolve « as soon as possible ».
We are aware of the issue that some Game Pass members are unable to access Operation Catalyst.

Well, after 4 days from its launch, users subscribed to the service have not yet received any news regarding the CrossfireX campaign, which was not disclosed even in the latest post by the developers on their own blog, written on February 13.
In fact, the latest update reports how the team is aware that they have « disappointed » their fans and that they are working to fix the more well-known issues, but without making any mention of the campaign bug on Xbox Game Pass: a lack that has annoyed many fans, who annoyed are starting to uninstall the game.
