Eight new titles heading to Xbox Game Pass in July

Microsoft has announced that eight new titles will be heading to it’s Xbox Live Game Pass service in July.

The first of the eight new additions this month will be Middle-Earth: Shadow of War, which will be available from Thursday 4th July. Shadow of War received mostly favourable reviews when it was released at the back end of 2017, and the action role-player is one of the standout new additions this month.

Also being added on Thursday 4th July will be cult favourite indie role-playing game Undertale and life simMy Time at Portia. If you’ve not yet experienced Undertale, you owe it to yourself as a gamer to do so. The game received critical acclaim and has received multiple awards and nominations from several gaming publications. My Time at Portia, meanwhile, is a charming and colourful lifestyle sim that borrows heavily from games such as the Harvest Moon series and indie farming sim Stardew Valley. You can find elements from most games in Portia, which combines farming, crafting, resource gathering, and dungeon crawling with more social aspects of town life.

Following up on Sunday 7th July will be Dead Rising 4, which is being added to the Game Pass on both Xbox and PC. Dead Rising 4 launched at the end of 2016 to mostly average reviews. Capcom’s action survival horror is definitely still worth a play through, as when did killing zombies ever get old?.

Also joining Game Pass on Sunday 7th July will be: Co-op arcade scroller Blazing Chromes, indie point-and-click adventure Unavowe, and Metroidvania platformer Timespinners. All three of these titles will be available on both console and PC.

Finally, the hilarious Lego City Undercover will be making it’s way onto the Xbox Game Pass library on the same day.

Wow, what a great month July is going to be for Game Pass subscribers on both Xbox One and PC. Dead Rising 4 and Middle-Earth: Shadow of War will no doubt get the headlines, yet for those who have yet to savour Undertale you’re in for a real treat. My Time In Portia is also a fantastic title, with Lego City Undercover being a great inclusion for both adults and children alike.
