The latest batch of games coming to Xbox Games Pass has been revealed, along with a list of games coming off the subscription later this month.
Chief among those who will soon leave Xbox Game Pass games is Hades. Greek Raguelite made a big splash when it was released back in 2018 and made its way onto our the best roguelike games list. It puts you in the shoes of Zagrey as he tries to escape the procedurally generated dungeons of the underworld. The hack ‘n’ slash game’s combat system has earned a lot of praise, as have its smooth features and illustrations of various Greek gods.
Nine other games will also be removed by the end of the month, including space sim Elite Dangerous, classic point-and-click adventure Myst, and acclaimed narrative indie What’s left of Edith Finch. The latter only takes a few hours and is worth diving into if you have some free time before the end of the month.
U blog post (opens in a new tab), Microsoft says Two Point Hospital is also getting the download. This is sad news for anyone who has found Two Point Campus does not provide the same chaotic satisfaction like its predecessor.
Picking up the slack
Several new games have taken their place. One includes another Greek-style adventure. Immortals Fenyx Rising will be the next latest Ubisoft game to be added to Game Pass after publisher partnership with Microsoft earlier this year. It’s something from exaggerated take on Breath of the wild.
