Xbox Game Pass is already a truly impressive service for gamers, but it continues to become more so over time. Besides the huge number of games launching into Xbox Game Pass over the next six months, like revealed during the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase at E3 2021, Microsoft adds new titles every single month. Xbox has now revealed the games coming to Xbox Game Pass in the second half of June (opens in new tab), and there are some great games on the list.
Highlights include indie gems like Limbo and Gang Beasts, as well as great games like Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered. There are nine new games in total, which is a big improvement over the much smaller list of games from the first half of June. Keep in mind that eight games are also leaving the service at the end of the month, including fantastic games like Monster Hunt World and Outer Wilds.
The games on this list can head everywhere that Xbox Game Pass is available, including Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PC, and Xbox Cloud Gaming. The best games on Xbox Game Pass already include some incredible titles, but new games come all the time to join it. In any case, it might be necessary to think about investing in one of the best external SSDs for Xbox Series X|S to store all of these games.
