Strania, The Splatters, Scrap Metal, Ghostbusters, Dragon Age: Origins, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, and Battlefield 3 were all added to the lineup this month. Its one of the largest (and highest profiling) title adds since the service launched in November 2015.

We'll keep you up to date, as always, as we get them.
