Xbox Game Pass Gets Yakuza Kiwami 2, Mount & Blade And Obsidian’s Grounded

Xbox Game Pass is about to get a lot more adventure. Obsidian’s mini-RPG GroundedMount & Blade: Warband, Forager and Yakuza Kiwami 2 are all about to land on Microsoft’s rolling Netflix-style service.

Along with Halo 3, which officially launched earlier this week, Xbox Game Pass users on PC have already gotten access to the excellent Endless Space 2 and Neon Abyss. Consoles users have gotten the latter as well, while Grounded, Carrion, Mount & Blade: Warband are coming to both platforms.

Here’s what’s coming to Xbox Game Pass over the next couple of weeks, as well as the games most recently added to the service:

neon abyss
  • Forager (Console & PC) ID@Xbox – July 16
  • Mount & Blade: Warband (Console) ID@Xbox – July 16
  • Carrion (Console & PC) ID@Xbox – July 23
  • Golf With Your Friends (PC) ID@Xbox – July 23
  • Grounded – Xbox Game Preview(Console & PC) – July 28
  • Endless Space 2 (PC) – Out Now
  • Halo 3 (PC) – Out Now
  • Neon Abyss (Console & PC) ID@Xbox – Out Now
  • Nowhere Prophet (Console & PC) ID@Xbox – July 30
  • The Touryst (Console & PC) – July 30
  • Yakuza Kiwami 2 (Console & PC) – July 30

Pretty decent mix of games. Golf With Your Friends means Xbox Game Pass users have access to another reliably good local co-op game, which the service could use a lot more of.

Outside of those, the following games are about to, or have already left Xbox Game Pass, this month:

  • Undertale (PC)
  • Dead Rising 4 (PC/Xbox)
  • Blazing Chrome (PC/Xbox)
  • Unavowed (PC)
  • Timespinner (PC/Xbox)

Dead Rising 4 leaving an Xbox platform is a bit strange — it’s a Capcom game, but Microsoft Studios were the original publisher, so you think it’d stay on Xbox Game Pass.

Anyway, Grounded, Forager, another Yakuza game, Mount & Blade: Warband and Golf With Your Friends are hitting the service soon. Not a bad combo.

Update: While the official Xbox Game Pass page lists the aforementioned titles as “leaving soon”, some of them have already left the service. Thanks, germinalconsequence!
