Five new games have been revealed for the Xbox Game Pass June 2022 haul. They include a major series of rebooted CRPGs, as well as a huge tentpole sports game and a beloved multiplayer melee battle royale title. Microsoft has also announced several new games getting Xbox Touch Controls support.
What's closing out the Xbox Game Pass June 2022 lineup?
After games like For Honor and Assassin's Creed Origins were added to Xbox Game pass earlier this month (and after a bumper May crop that included Jurassic World Evolution 2 as well), five new games are on their way to Xbox Game Pass in June. If you're a fan of soccer, cyberpunk, or carving fools up like deli ham, you'll be happy with what's on offer. Here's your Xbox Game Pass lineup for the back half of June.
Shadowrun Trilogy (console, cloud, launches today)
Shadowrun Trilogy comprises three excellent CRPGs: Shadowrun Returns, Shadowrun: Dragonfall, and Shadowrun: Hong Kong. All three combine narrative decision-making with XCOM-style turn-based tactical combat, and they all tell some pretty great stories, too.
Total War: Three Kingdoms (PC, launches today)
Despite facing review bombing from irate players who wanted more content for the game, Total War: Three Kingdoms is a great grand strategy game set during the Three Kingdoms period of Chinese history. It's got all of the massive battles, epic scope, and solid artificial intelligence you'd expect from a Total War game.
FIFA 22 (PC, console, launches June 23rd)
Soccer fans (or football fans, as they're called in the UK) know the dominance of FIFA, and with FIFA 22 coming to Xbox Game Pass on June 23rd, you're getting arguably the definitive version of the sim. It's got plenty of licensed teams, stadiums, and players, and the game has been refined to be more tactical and strategic than ever, too.
Naraka: Bladepoint (PC, console, cloud, launches June 23rd)
Naraka: Bladepoint is a melee-focused battle royale game in which you pick one of a diverse series of heroes, each with their own abilities and playstyle. It's got fluid combat, some pretty impressive visuals, and a wealth of characters to check out, so give it a look if you're after something more intense.
Far Cry 5 (PC, console, cloud, launches July 1st)
Technically, Far Cry 5 is part of July's lineup, but however you slice it, this open-world shooter is one of Ubisoft's better offerings in recent years. It transposes the now-typical Far Cry action to Montana, where you'll face off against Joseph Seed and his fanatical cult of worshippers. It doesn't excuse the company's reportedly horrendous approach to its employees, though.
Which games are getting Xbox Touch Controls support in June 2022?
As well as the above titles being added to the service, several games on Xbox Game Pass are also getting Xbox Touch Controls support, allowing them to be played with touch controls on mobile devices. Here's the full list of games getting that treatment in the second half of June 2022.
- Broken Age
- Chinatown Detective Agency
- Kraken Academy
- Life is Strange: True Colors
- Ninja Gaiden Sigma
- Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2
- Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge
- The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk
- The Last Kids on Earth
Finally, it is with no small measure of sadness that we must bid farewell to a few games, too. Four games are leaving the Xbox Game Pass service at the end of June (on June 30th, specifically), so make sure you've said your last goodbyes to these games before then. Alternatively, you could always buy them, of course. Here are the games leaving on June 30th.
- FIFA 20 (PC, console)
- Jurassic World Evolution (console, cloud)
- Last Stop (PC, console, cloud)
- MotoGP 20 (PC, console, cloud)
