Xbox Game Pass

Four new games are coming to Xbox Game Pass in the next week, or should that be 33 new games?

Microsoft has confirmed the titles joining – and leaving – its video game subscription service. Of the joiners, the excellent Resident Evil: Revelations is certainly worth a whirl, as is Coffee Stain Studio’s bonkers action game, Goat Simulator.

Retro enthusiasts also shouldn’t pass up the opportunity to sample the rich heritage of Rare and Ultimate Play the Game. The Rare Replay compilation includes 30 games, ranging from ZX Spectrum classics like Jetpac and Sabrewulf, right up to more recent hits including the Xbox 360’s Viva Pinata and Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts. InXile Entertainment’s popular RPG, Torment: Tides of Numenera, is also coming to Xbox Game Pass for PC.


Among the titles leaving the service this month are Dead Island Definitive Edition, Devil May Cry 4, and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Subscribers can purchase each game with a 20% discount until the end of June.
