Wave One of June’s Game Pass Games Revealed

Wave One of June’s Game Pass Games Revealed

The first wave of Xbox’s Game Pass games have been revealed. There’s a smaller block of titles announced this time around. However, that isn’t to say that the quality of games aren’t up to scratch. If anything, less games is a good thing – that ruddy backlog won’t fill up as much as usual.

So, if you’ve recently got yourself a new Xbox, or you’re wanting a few more games to play, look no further. And, as part of your Game Pass subscription, you can download all these games for free. As part of your Game Pass Ultimate subscription, you can play all Game Pass games on your console, PC, and on the cloud.

Alas, it’s not all good news. With every game that comes to Game Pass, we must lose some. Think of it as Phil Spencer’s third law of Game Pass motion – every incoming game must force another one off the service. However, it’s not al terrible news, as you’ll still be able to bag these games for yourself with a special 20% discount with your Game Pass Ultimate subscription.
