Dead Island: Riptide, Resident Evil 5, and more leave Xbox Game Pass soon

What you need to know

  • Xbox Game Pass is a monthly subscription service that gives you access to over 200 games.
  • Recently, Microsoft announced a number of ID@Xbox games coming to the service.
  • Today, the AAA offerings for part of October were revealed as well as departures.
  • You can purchase Xbox Game Pass through Amazon.

Xbox Game Pass is a monthly subscription service along the lines of Netflix. Just like the films and shows, certain games rotate in and out. In the next few weeks, a few titles will leave Xbox Game Pass to make room for new experiences. Today, Microsoft announced on the Xbox Game Pass iOS app, that a few smaller games were leaving the service.

  • Sinner: Sacrifice for Redemption
  • Dead Island: Riptide Definitive Edition
  • Observer
  • Resident Evil 5

Out of all of these, I think Dead Island: Riptide and Resident Evil 5 will be missed the most. While they weren't critical successes, they're still great action games to play through. Luckily, Dishonored 2, Fallout: New Vegas, and more AAA games are joining the service soon. Those should definitely make up for these departures.
