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.

The best Xbox Series X games for 2023

After an uneven console cycle with the Xbox One, Microsoft's latest consoles are aimed at getting the ship back on course. The Xbox Series X is a next-generation powerhouse that rivals gaming PCs, while the Xbox Series S is an affordable stopgap for those who are curious about trying new games.

There's no shortage of games to play on either console thanks to Xbox Game Pass, which gives players immediate access to a library of titles old and new. That built-in catalog is an extra value on top of all the new games available on the system that take advantage of its impressive technical specs. When it comes to first-party exclusives, the Series X is still growing. Halo Infinite and Forza Horizon 5 gave a good boost to the console's library following a somewhat sparse first year. More games are also on the way. Microsoft's Bethesda acquisition will bring exclusives like Starfield and the potential addition of all Activision Blizzard games would further bolster that list, but the console's real strength lies in third-party support.
