Xbox Game Pass adds eight new games for June 2020

Xbox Game Pass, a subscription service that allows gamers to play more than 100 games on Xbox consoles and PC, will add eight new titles in June.

The new games include:

June 11

  • No Man’s Sky
  • Dungeon of the Endless
  • Kingdom Hearts HD 1.52.5 ReMix
  • Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue
  • Battletech
  • Battlefleet Gothic Armada 2

June 18

  • Thronebreaker
  • The Bard’s Tale Remastered and Resnarkled

Game Pass is often referred to as a sort of Netflix-type offering for video games that is helping to usher in the newest era of digital gaming, one that continues to push the industry away from physical copies of games. It was launched in June 2017.

The Kingdom Hearts additions cover the story before 2019’s Kingdom Hearts 3 and will be available for console play. No Man’s Sky now features crossplay and is playable on PC.

Thronebreaker is a single-player RPG set in the world of The Witcher. It’s being released on consoles.

In the Bard’s Tale, being released for both the console and PC, the player controls a selfish rogue who explores a magical land.

Dungeon of the Endless is a throwback 2D game that features updated 3D graphics. The objective is to protect the generator of a crashed ship while also exploring dungeons and facing monsters. It will be available on console and PC.

Both Battletech and Battlefleet Gothic Armada 2 are available on PC only.

There are also several games leaving the service on June 15. Those include:

  • Book of Demons
  • Everspace
  • Resident Evil Revelations
  • Riptide GP: Renegade
  • Riverbond
  • Samorost 3
  • Superhot
  • Supermarket Shriek
  • The Last Door: Season 2
  • The Stillness of the Wind

The service also allows for first-day access to certain games like the upcoming title Grounded, a new multiplayer survival game where players are shrunken down and need to fight their way out of a backyard. It will be available for pre-install on June 16.

Xbox Game Pass members will also have access to The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind as a free upgrade to the game for console on June 11. The upgrade includes Morrowind, Summerset, Elsweyr, and the new Greymoor chapter.

Xbox Game Pass costs less than $15 a month and offers a massive backlog of games on Xbox and Windows.

I want more approachable Soulslikes. These new games show that it’s possible
Stellar Blade STALKER fight.

One of my favorite copypastas on the internet comes from someone complaining about a player using mods to make a FromSoftware game easier. "You cheated not only the game, but yourself," it reads. "You didn't grow. You didn't improve. You took a shortcut and gained nothing. You experienced a hollow victory. Nothing was risked and nothing was gained. It's sad that you don't know the difference."

The infamous post was made in response to a PC Gamer article about mods that made Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice more approachable for the writer. It's funny to see someone get that angry over another's personal experience with a game they own, but it also addresses a question that's loomed over the gaming community ever since Dark Souls took the world by storm: Should FromSoftware's games and the Soulslikes inspired by them have options to make them more accessible?

3 Xbox Game Pass games you need to play this weekend (May 3-5)
Senua in Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice.

Another weekend is upon us, and you're probably looking for some games to kill time with over the course of it. We're in a bit of a lull right now ahead of a flurry of releases starting next week, so it's a great time to dip back into the Xbox Game Pass catalog and check out some games that you may have missed. There are three games in particular that I think you should check out this weekend if you're looking for something to play.

One is an unsettling adventure that's getting an Xbox-exclusive sequel later this month. The next is a finely animated roguelike indie that recently made its way to Microsoft's gaming subscription service. Finally, there's a relaxing adventure that gives players a lot of freedom, yet is short enough to beat in a weekend. If you're having trouble deciding what to play this weekend, give one of these games a shot.
