Here are your Xbox Game Pass games for July 2022

As another month rolls by, more games have been added to Xbox Game Pass, including 3 titles from the Yakuza RPG series.

Back in December 2021, Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami and Yakuza Kiwami 2 were removed from the service but have been spotted on Xbox Game Pass and are downloadable yet again.

Yakuza 3, Yakuza 4, Yakuza 5, Yakuza 6: The Song of Life and Yakuza: Like a Dragon already exist on the service, making Xbox Game Pass a must-have if you want to get into the series.

One of my favourite game series to date, the Yakuza series let you run around a gorgeous re-constructed Japan. From playing a large list of mini-games, fighting thugs and gang members, to spending all day at the karaoke booth – the Yakuza games are a must-play for any JRPG fan.

Xbox Game Pass Now Has Over 25 Million Subscribers

Don’t just take my word for it. Actor Rahul Kohli, known for his role in Netflix’s Midnight Mass has just started a playthrough of Yakuza 0 and if he’s impressed, you will be too.


Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will cost you £10.99 a month and give you access to the Yakuza games along with a vast collection of titles that rotate on a monthly basis.
