Microsoft is adding an impressive slate of games to Xbox Game Pass during the remainder of July.
Arriving today is Forager, the charming crafting adventure game from Hopfrog. It’s definitely a game to try if a blend of Zelda, Stardew Valley, and Terraria sounds appealing.
Carrion is next, slaughtering its way onto Game Pass next week. If nothing else, Phobia Game Studio’s reverse-horror is a master class of pixel art animation. Let’s hope the game lives up to its clever premise.
Obsidian Entertainment’s Grounded debuts on July 28 as an Xbox Game Preview title. The shrunken-down survival game is the studio’s first new project since its acquisition by Microsoft.
Nowhere Prophet and The Touryst arrive on July 30, as does Sega’s sublime crime remake, Yakuza Kiwami 2.
It’s another stellar lineup for Microsoft’s all-you-can-play game subscription service. Here’s the full list of new additions.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
