With new games arriving all the time, it can be easy to lose track of new additions.

Here's every single game coming to and leaving Xbox Game Pass right now. If you want the complete list, be sure to bookmark our ultimate guide to every game on Xbox Game Pass.

Best new Xbox Game Pass games: June 2022

You'll rarely go wrong with the diverse selection of games on Xbox Game Pass, but there are always a handful of titles that stand above the rest — including, but not limited to, exceptional indie games, addictive multiplayer games, expansive AAA games, and Microsoft's first-party titles and projects. These are the best new games that have recently arrived on Xbox Game Pass that you shouldn't hesitate to play.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge

  • Available June 16 (Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, & PC)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge harkens back to the days of old-school brawlers and arcade beat 'em ups, but does so with some modern ideas and slick 6-player online co-op. While the campaign is undoubtedly a short affair, Shredder's Revenge is highly replayable, with plenty of reasons for players to return time and time again, especially with friends. It's also a launch day addition on Xbox and PC Game Pass.

Assassin's Creed Origins

  • Available June 7 (Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Xbox Cloud Gaming, & PC)

Assassin's Creed Origins kicked off the modern era of Assassin's Creed, with far more RPG-like elements and more nuanced combat added to the already intricately detailed worlds. Now running at 60 FPS on current-gen Xbox Series X and S consoles, Assassin's Creed Origins' addition to Xbox and PC Game Pass is a great way to get into the franchise.

Sniper Elite 5

  • Available May 26 (Xbox Series X|S Optimized, Xbox One, & PC)

Sniper Elite 5 is the latest entry in the long-running snipe-them-up franchise, and it's the largest and most ambitious Sniper Elite game yet. Fans of the series will be met with familiar gameplay and features, including the return of the (new and improved) bullet-time camera. However, Sniper Elite 5 also boasts of a fresh coat of paint, a brand-new campaign, and a ton of new features and gameplay content for players to explore. A day one launch for Xbox and PC Game Pass, this is a can't-miss game for shooter fans.

Upcoming games launching on Xbox Game Pass

(Image credit: Source: Xbox Game Studios)

Microsoft gives us updates on games heading to Xbox Game Pass a few weeks before those games become available, usually twice a month. However, Xbox and ID@Xbox events toss aside this expectation to announce a flurry of games that are hitting Xbox Game Pass day and date, meaning they're launching into the service when they land on Xbox platforms. That means day one access to all of these games for Xbox Game Pass subscribers, including some of the best upcoming Xbox games.

Many of these games are far enough out that they don't even have a release date, and we're not certain exactly which platforms they'll come to through Xbox Game Pass. Still, this list in our Xbox Game Pass guide will give you an idea of what to look out for in the future of Xbox Game Pass. We'll constantly update this list as we get new information about release dates, when games become available, and what platforms are getting them.

In case you missed it, over 30 games coming to Xbox and PC Game Pass on day one were presented during the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase 2022. You can view the full list of additions below.
