The next batch of games coming to Xbox Game Pass have been announced. 

On the Xbox Wire, it was announced that four more games are being added to Xbox Game Pass. The first game is The Wild at Heart, which is available now through the Cloud. The Wild at Heart has players explore a beautiful, handcrafted world that is full of puzzles and deep secrets. The game's story story centers around two children who escape to a fantastical land filled with magical creatures to befriend, as well as an oddball order of guardians who have lost their way. 

The second game coming to Game Pass is For Honor. The game will be available on June 3rd, and will be available for both Console and Cloud. In For Honor, gamers will play as heroes from rival factions as they clash in unending visceral battles. Players will have to use their finely honed skills in order to emerge victorious in a variety of single and multiplayer modes. 

The next game coming to Game Pass is Backbone, which will be available on PC starting on June 8th. Gamers will play as raccoon detective Howard Lotor. He is not a hero, he can barely make rent, and yet has stumbled across something so massive that it will shake the very fabric of society. Backbone features stunning visuals, an evocative soundtrack, and a daring narrative set in a dystopian Vancouver inhabited by animals. 

The final game coming to Game Pass soon is Darkest Dungeon. It will be available on the Console, PC, and Cloud versions of Game Pass, and will be available starting on June 10th. Darkest Dungeon is a gothic roguelike turn-based RPG about the psychological stresses of adventuring. Gamers will recruit, train, and lead a team of flawed heroes through twisted forests, forgotten warrens, ruined crypts, and more. Players will have to take on unimaginable foes, as well as stress, famine, disease, and the ever-encroaching dark. 

Also announced was the next group of games that are leaving Game Pass. The following games will leave the service on June 15th, though they can be purchased at a discount if players wish to keep them in their libraries. The titles leaving Game Pass can be seen below:

  • Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown (Console)
  • Night Call (Cloud, Console, and PC)
  • West of Dead (Cloud, Console, and PC)
  • Wizard of Legend (Cloud, Console, and PC)
  • Observation (Cloud, Console, and PC)

I have been playing video games for as long as I can remember. I am a huge fan of JRPGs, though I also enjoy fighters. I have been writing about video games for a few years now. If it has a great story, I am sure that I will dig it.
