Xbox Game Pass gets For Honor, Darkest Dungeon, Backbone, and more this month

Learn all the games joining Xbox Game Pass in June.

Microsoft has announced a new selection of games joining the Xbox Game Pass catalogue this month.

The first game to arrive is The Wild at Heart, which joins Xbox Game Pass Cloud service today. It’s a whimsical puzzle adventure which follows two children exploring the Deep Woods – a hidden land of magical creatures.

Next up is Ubisoft’s third-person sword-swinging multiplayer game For Honor, arriving for Cloud and Console on June 3. If traditional stabbers aren’t your fare, For Honor’s ever-expanding roster of heroes also includes axes, tridents, spears, daggers, and, well, pretty much any weapon you can think of. Practice (and plenty of deaths) makes perfect as you test your skills in a range of online modes.

For PC subscribers, the mammalian detective tale of Backbone will arrive on launch, June 8. It’s a post-noir tale set in a dystopian (and animal-packed) take on Vancouver city. Expect sharp wit and even sharper dress codes as you step into the shoes of raccoon detective Howard Lotor.

Finally, hit roguelike Darkest Dungeon will bring its gothic vibes to Cloud, Console, and PC from June 10. To brave the harrowing depths of the land’s crypts and forests you’ll need to recruit warriors capable of withstanding (or overcoming) the stresses and challenges ahead. Monsters are only the first of the foes your party will face as they tackle disease, stress, darkness, and more.

As for games departing the service, Microsoft has also listed the following titles as dropping out on June 15:

  • Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown (Console)
  • Night Call (Cloud, Console, and PC)
  • West of Dead (Cloud, Console, and PC)
  • Wizard of Legend (Cloud, Console, and PC)
  • Observation (Cloud, Console, and PC)

Those are all the games arriving on Xbox Game Pass in June, though Microsoft has a big wave of announcements due in its E3 media briefing on June 13. Expect more titles to be listed for addition then.
