The new additions coming to the Xbox Game Pass subscription service have been revealed by Microsoft, and June is looking like a very fun month!
First off, just a reminder that Xbox Game Pass is a subscription service – while it does give you the option to play hundreds of games without charging per title, you are paying a monthly (or annual) fee for the service as a whole.
With that out of the way, let’s see what we’re being treated to this month!
The list of new additions kicks off with The Wild at Heat, which looks absolutely charming with its incredibly gorgeous art style. Xbox says: “Explore a beautiful, handcrafted world full of charming puzzles, and deep secrets in The Wild at Heart, a whimsical story centered around two children that escape to a fantastical land filled with magical creatures to befriend and an oddball order of guardians who’ve lost their way. Welcome to the Deep Woods.“
The Wild at Heart is available on Xbox Game Pass right now (cloud only).
Next we have a game which needs no introduction: For Honor. As Microsoft puts it: “War marches across the land of Heathmoor as heroes from rival factions clash in unending visceral battles. Use your finely honed skill to emerge victorious in a variety of thrilling single and brutal multiplayer modes. Grasp destiny in your hands and fight… for honor.“
For Honor will be available on June 3, for cloud and console.
Available from June 8 is indie gem Backbone, a post-noir detective thriller starring a raccoon in a trench coat. Poor Howard is embroiled in a mystery which you’ll have to solve, interrogating the pixel-perfect animals who inhabit the world. We’ve spoken about Backbone before, so it’s definitely one to check out!
Backbone will be available for PC only.
Finally we have Darkest Dungeon, available from June 10. Xbox says: “Darkest Dungeon is a challenging gothic roguelike turn-based RPG about the psychological stresses of adventuring. Recruit, train, and lead a team of flawed heroes through twisted forests, forgotten warrens, ruined crypts, and beyond. Not only do unimaginable foes await, but stress, famine, disease, and the ever-encroaching dark.“
Darkest Dungeon will be available for cloud, console and PC.
