Microsoft has announced that four more games will be added to the Xbox Game Pass before the end of June, and one of them is exclusive to PC.
On Thursday 20th June, both Resident Evil: Revelations and Rare Replay will be added to the Xbox Game Pass for console players only. Resident Evil: Revelations is a survival-horror game that was originally released for the Nintendo 3DS in 2012, but HD remakes eventually released for the last generation of consoles in 2013 and the current generation of consoles in 2017. Rare Replay is decidedly less scary, compiling together 30 of Rare’s best titles into one package, including the likes of Snake Rattle ‘n’ Roll, Battletoads, Perfect Dark, Banjo-Kazooie, Jet Force Gemini, Perfect Dark, Banjo Tooie, and Conker’s Bad Fur Day. The compilation released as an Xbox One exclusive in August 2015 to great reviews, and it’s an absolute must-play for those who didn’t experience some of Rare’s classic titles, particularly those from the Nintendo 64 era.
On Thursday 27th June, Torment: Tides of Numenera and Goat Simulator will be added to the Game Pass. Torment: Tides of Numenera, the well-received RPG from 2017, has the privilege of being the first game that is being added exclusively to the Xbox Game Pass for PC, as it won’t be playable by Game Pass subscribers on console. Goat Simulator, meanwhile, will be available to play on both Game Pass for PC and Game Pass for Console. Goat Simulator is absolutely ridiculous and isn’t particularly well made, but it is a decent laugh if you’re at a loose end and fancy taking on the role of a goat and smashing things up.
As well as these new additions there are also a number of games leaving the Xbox Game Pass on the console side of things. Next Up Hero will go on Thursday 27th June, while a further five titles will leave on Sunday 30th June. Namely, these titles are Dead Island Definitive Edition, Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition, Shadow Complex Remastered, Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, and Zombie Army Trilogy.
Don’t forget that you can subscribe to the newly-launched Xbox Game Pass Ultimate—which will give you access to both Game Pass for Console and Game Pass for PC as well as an Xbox Live Gold Subscription—for just £10.99 a month, and new subscribers can get their first month for just £1. Of course, if you don’t want Ultimate then you can still subscribe to the standard Xbox Game Pass for Console or Xbox Game Pass for PC.
