New Bethesda Games & 2021 Roadmap
The Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase offered us A LOT of fantastic information about new Xbox titles. Starfield finally received a release date and Forza Horizon 5 was announced, too! However, Xbox Game Pass subscribers had a lot to look forward to, too.
A new batch of Bethesda games, including DOOM 2016, were announced as new additions to Xbox Game Pass and Microsoft shared an update on some of the biggest new releases coming to the service throughout the remainder of the year!
In addition to this, huge new titles like Back 4 Blood and Among Us are going to be coming to Xbox Game Pass throughout the year. Below, you can check out all the biggest titles launching on Xbox Game Pass throughout the year.
Need For Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered Coming To Game Pass
Earlier this week, EA delisted five Need For Speed titles, Carbon, Undercover, Shift, Shift 2, and The Run.
Thankfully, some EA games still remain, including Need For Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered, a remastered version of the 2010 Xbox 360, PS3, PC, and Wii game.
EA has confirmed that this new title will be coming to both Game Pass and EA Play on June 24th.
Game Pass Ultimate subscribers gain access to EA Play so are able to play the game.
This should be available to both console and PC users.
All Confirmed Games Coming To Game Pass
Major Nelson giveth, once more! We now know the next four titles coming to Xbox Game Pass. They are as follows...
- The Wild at Heart (Cloud) - June 1st
- For Honor (Cloud, Console) - June 3rd
- Backbone (PC) - June 8th
- Darkest Dungeon (Cloud, Console, PC) - June 10th
There's also a next-gen update for Human: Fall Flat, a new expansion for Black Desert, and Knockout City Season 1 out right now! You can check all of the updates and latest information on the new Game Pass titles here.
In addition to all of this, Dungeons and Dragons: Dark Alliance is going to be added to the service as yet another day one release. Xbox fans keep winning, right?
Dark Alliance is a cooperative action RPG that features characters from The Legend of Drizzt and the Icewind Dale. It is designed for four-player multiplayer, in a similar fashion to how World War Z and Left 4 Dead is.
It's a brutal and dark game about smashing bad guys and solving puzzles and the announcement trailer can show that. That title is being added on June 22nd, though, which is a little way into the month.
What's Leaving In June?
Unfortunately, as we leave the month, we lose a couple of great titles. All of the following games leave on May 31.
- Assetto Corsa, the hardcore racing sim makes its exit, as quick as it came.
- Broforce blasts out of Xbox Game Pass, fists raised and explosives set.
- Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 Remix leaves but you never had time to finish it anyway.
- You'll have to buy it if you want to survive Surviving Mars for any longer as it leaves at the end of the month.
- Finally, no profanity will be shouted as Void Bastards finds its way out on May 31st.
When Will The Rest Of The Games Be Announced?
We usually see an announcement within the first few days of the month, and then sometimes again further into the month, depending on how many games are being added.
