Four indie titles have hit Xbox Game Pass. 

On the official Xbox Blog, it was announced that The Messenger, Streets of Rogue, Night Call, and Observation have all been released on Xbox Game Pass. It was also announced what games will be leaving the service soon. 

For those with the console version of the service, players can run through Night Call, Streets of Rogue, and The Messenger. In Night Call, a corrupt detective plans to pin a series of murders on the player, and they must do what they can in order to aid in the investigation and solve the mystery. Streets of Rogue is a rogue-lite that is about player choice, freedom, and some anarchic fun. Rather than taking place in a dungeon, the game is set in a functioning, procedurally generated city. Finally, console gamers will be able to play The Messenger. The game is already available on PC, and is finally making its way to console. The game has players take control of a young ninja who must venture through a cursed world in order to deliver a scroll that is important to his clan's survival. The game starts as a classic action-platformer, but then turns into a time-traveling adventure full of surprises. 

The fourth game that has released for Xbox Game Pass is Observation, which will be released for both the PC and console versions of the service. Observation is a sci-fi thriller where players take control of a station's A.I. in order to figure out what happened to the crew. Players will have to go through the station's control systems, cameras, and tools to figure out what is going on. 

It was also announced that the nine following titles will be leaving Xbox Game Pass on June 30th:

  • Battlefleet Gothic: Armada (PC)
  • Die for Valhalla! (PC)
  • Life is Strange 2 (Console)
  • Metal Slug X (Console and PC)
  • Metro Exodus (Console and PC)
  • Neon Chrome (Console and PC)
  • Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun (Console and PC)
  • SteamWorld Dig 2 (Console and PC)
  • The Flame in the Flood (Console and PC)

If Xbox Game Pass members wish to purchase these titles and keep them in their library, they can use their membership discount to get the games for up to 20% off.
