What you need to know

  • Xbox Game Pass is a monthly subscription service that gives you access to over 200 games.
  • The Kingdom Hearts Collection and more titles are joining the service soon.
  • Games like Everspace are leaving soon, too.
  • You can purchase Xbox Game Pass through Amazon (opens in new tab).

Xbox Game Pass is a monthly subscription service from Microsoft that gives you access to over 200 games a month for $10. There are a couple of options when it comes to subscribing. You can either get Xbox Game Pass for Xbox One, or bundle Xbox Game Pass for Xbox One, Xbox Game Pass for PC, and Xbox Live Gold for $15 with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

A lot of critically-acclaimed games are joining the service in the coming week or two. You can take a look at the complete list below. I would recommend checking out Bard's Tale Remastered and Resnarkled, Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 and 2.5 ReMix, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, No Man's Sky, and The Witcher: Thronebreaker.

  • Bard's Tale Remastered and Resnarkled (Xbox One and PC) on June 18
  • Battlefleet Gothic Armada 2 (PC) on June 11
  • Battletech (PC) on June 11
  • Dungeon of the Endless (Xbox One and PC) on June 11
  • Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 and 2.5 ReMix (Xbox One) on June 11
  • Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue (Xbox One) on June 11
  • No Man's Sky (Xbox One and PC) on June 11 with cross-play support
  • The Witcher: Thronebreaker (Xbox One) on June 18

You can read more about No Man's Sky cross-play between all platforms here.

As reported by us earlier, games like Everspace, Superhot, and more are leaving Xbox Game Pass in the coming weeks. You can see the complete list below.

  • Book of Demons (PC)
  • Everspace (Xbox One and PC)
  • Resident Evil Revelations (Xbox One)
  • Riptide GP: Renegade (Xbox One and PC)
  • Riverbond (Xbox One and PC)
  • Samorost 3 (PC)
  • Superhot (Xbox One and PC)
  • Supermarket Shriek (Xbox One and PC)
  • The Last Door: Season 2 (PC)
  • The Stillness of the Wind (PC)

Out of all of these, Everspace and Superhot will be missed the most because they're incredible. If you want to keep them, be sure to buy them with your Xbox Game Pass discount.

  • Not really anything interesting in there for me this month.
  • I think it's just half the month.
  • Ah, cheers. Thanks fella
  • All 4 versions of Bard's Tale were already there.
  • I'm guessing that this is a remaster of the PS2 game? Based on the title of it anyway. Yup, I just looked it up, it is.
  • No Man's Sky and Thronebreaker are going to be my picks of that bunch. I'd love to get into the Kingdom Hearts series but having not played any of them it's just too much of an investment now.
