At E3 2021, Microsoft showed off a whole bunch of upcoming games slated for the Xbox Game Pass library. In addition to first-party tentpoles like Halo Infinite, the service will also receive a number of smaller titles in the coming months. Highlights include Sable, 12 Minutes, and a realistic snowboarding sim called Shredders. But none of those games are available just yet, and the Game Pass machine must keep chugging along.

Here’s everything coming to Xbox Game Pass in the next few weeks:

June 23

  • Worms Rumble (Console, Cloud, PC)

June 24

  • Iron Harvest (PC)
  • Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered (Console and PC, via EA Play)
  • Prodeus, via Game Preview (PC)

July 1

  • Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts (Cloud)
  • Bug Fables: The Everlasting Sapling (Cloud, Console, PC)
  • Gang Beasts (Cloud, Console, PC)
  • Immortal Realms: Vampire Wars (Cloud, Console, PC)
  • Limbo (Cloud, Console, PC)

As always, whenever Microsoft adds to the Game Pass library, it also prunes things somewhat. This time around, some terrific games are leaving, including Outer Wilds — a sci-fi exploration game and a perennial Kotaku favourite. Some fighting games are going by the wayside as well. And fans of Monster Hunter World will need to find a new game that allows for gazillions of hours of kaiju-busting. All of the following will leave the Game Pass library on June 30:

  • Battle Chasers: Nightwar (Cloud, Console, PC)
  • Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite (Cloud, Console, PC)
  • Mistover (PC)
  • Monster Hunter World (Cloud, Console)
  • Out of the Park Baseball 21 (PC)
  • Outer Wilds (Cloud, Console)
  • Soulcalibur VI (Console)
  • The Messenger (Cloud, Console, PC)

Xbox Game Pass, for those who don’t know, is Microsoft’s games-on-demand service. It’s $US10 ($13) a month. The $US15 ($19)/monthly “Ultimate” tier, meanwhile, grants you a number of perks, including an Xbox Live Gold subscription and bundled-in access to the EA Play library.

Comments

  • Some good stuff coming in (get to re-live my NFS fix again) but I will say this is the first month where there are some great games being taken away. Outer Wilds, Monster Hunter and Soul Calibur have been enjoyable.

    Still, they can’t be there forever. Thanks for the memories Game Pass.
