Xbox Game Pass is continuing to bring more games into their fold, with no signs of slowing down.
Coming off their stellar E3 2021 presentation, Xbox just confirmed a good number of new games to be added to Game Pass for the rest of this month, as well as some games for July, reports GameRant. For the remaining days of June, gamers are going to get these notable titles:
- "Worms Rumble" (Cloud, PC, console) June 23
- "Iron Harvest" (PC) June 24
- "Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered" (Console, PC, only on Game pass Ultimate) June 24
- "Prodeus" (PC) June 24
"Prodeus" will be the different one out of the bunch, though, since the game is only coming to Xbox Game Pass in preview form as of the moment. There's still no announcement yet from Microsoft which clarifies what this actually means.
As for July, there's going to be a good mix of indie and AAA-style titles coming to Xbox Game Pass. As stated on the official Xbox news site, the games are going to be a follows:
- "Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts" (Cloud) July 1
- "Bug Fables: The Everlasting Sapling" (Cloud, PC, console) July 1
- "Gang Beasts" (Cloud, PC, console) July 1
- "Immortal Realms: Vampire Wars" (Cloud, PC, console) July 1
- "Limbo" (Cloud, PC, console) July 1
Some of these games are great multiplayer titles that gamers should check out, like "Gang Beasts," which features comedic, slapstick gameplay with gelatin-like characters. A title like this is a good, refreshing break from all the graphically intense ones saturating the market these days.
Lastly, there are three more confirmed Xbox Game Pass additions for late July, according to GameRant: "Cris Tales" (July 20), "Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020" (July 27), and the cyberpunk shooter "The Ascent" (July 29). All three of these games are worthy of your time, especially "Flight Simulator 2020," when it makes its much-anticipated Xbox Series X debut. It was one of the highest-rated releases of last year, mainly due to its incredibly accurate simulation, excellent graphics, and the ability to visit almost any place in the world.
Xbox Game Pass Making Waves

PARIS, FRANCE - OCTOBER 25: A visitor walks past an poster of the Microsoft subscription service "Xbox Game Pass" during the 'Paris Games Week' on October 25, 2018 in Paris, France. 'Paris Games Week' is an international trade fair for video games and runs from October 26 to 31, 2018.
One of these outlets is CNET, a publication that wrote that the real winners of this year's E3 are Xbox Game Pass subscribers. Since there was no direct competition from Sony PlayStation at this year's event, Microsoft was basically free to do and announce anything they pleased. They stole the show by revealing a lot of excellent titles accessible via their Xbox online ecosystem, which is slated to bring more games even to people who don't own consoles.
Xbox Game Pass is one of Microsoft's main ways of targeting a massive 3 billion total players within the foreseeable future. And with the way things are going, they might very well be on their way to doing just that.
