Microsoft has announced seven new games which they’ll be adding to their Xbox Game Pass service in July 2017. The list of games includes big players such as Dead Island: Definitive Edition and Resident Evil 6, but also some great smaller games like Guacamelee (the Super Turbo Championship Edition, no less) and The Flame in the Flood.
For those of you out of the loop, Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass is a fairly new gaming service they offer. In fact, it launched on May 24th for Xbox Live Gold members, and on June 1st for everyone. The idea behind Xbox Game Pass is that it’s a subscriptions service, much like Netflix and the like. It costs $10 a month, and it gives you unlimited access to a list of selected games as long as you pay for the subscription.
The games download to your console just like a digital purchase would be, as opposed to PlayStation Plus, where games are streamed. The library consists of about 100 games, some of which get swapped for new entries every month for variety. As an added bonus, all Xbox 360 games on the list are fully backwards-compatible with the Xbox One.
Speaking of which, they’ve announced the titles that they’ll be adding to the Xbox Game Pass service in July 2017. As far as really well-known games go, the list includes two major zombie games: Resident Evil 6 and Dead Island. You can also play Guacamelee, a very highly-reviewed Metroidvania Guacamelee and The Flame in the Flood for those that like rougelikes. There’s a little something for (almost) everyone’s taste.
