Its predecessor, Two Point Hospital, offers a similar gameplay, except that it runs a hospital rather than a university. Fortunately, Two Point Hospital is also easily available to play via Xbox Game Pass, so anyone can play both games in the series without paying anything other than a Game Pass subscription fee.
