Xbox Game Pass Titles Announced For June

Multiplayer melee mayhem and animal kingdom mysteries highlight the first Xbox Game Pass offerings for June.


Microsoft has revealed the latest batch of games that'll be available in June for Xbox Game Pass, which will start the month off with a mix of detective work, despair, and medieval melee combat.

The handcrafted world of puzzles and secrets in The Wild at Heart is available right now on cloud devices that support Game Pass, while Ubisoft's long-running multiplayer combat bloodsport For Honor will be available from June 3 on Xbox consoles and the cloud.\

On June 8, Game Pass for PC will add Backbone, a post-noir detective mystery set in a dystopian world. Plus you can play as a raccoon gumshoe named Howard Lotor in this game, which is pretty neat.

Finally, Darkest Dungeon will be made available on June 10 for console, PC, and the cloud. A challenging gothic roguelike with turn-based RPG elements, Darkest Dungeon not only challenges you to survive dangerous catacombs with a team of flawed heroes, but you'll also have to deal with the lingering mental strain placed on these adventurers as they venture further into the darkness.

To make room for these new games, several other titles will be leaving Xbox Game Pass. Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown, Night Call, West of Dead, Wizard of Legend, and Observation will all rotate out of the service on June 15.
