Xbox has revealed which games will be coming to Xbox Game Pass for the first half of June. It’s mostly a collection of slightly older titles with a single day-one launch for next week. We are, however, getting a couple of Ubisoft games on the service.
Only two titles are launching on Game Pass this week. One is For Honor: Marching Fire Edition, which debuts on June 1. The other is the Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection, which launches on June 2. The latter includes Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2, and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge, the second trilogy in the series.
Several more games are coming next week, including Assassin’s Creed Origins. It launches on June 7, alongside Chorus, Disc Room, and Spacelines from the Far Out (the day one launch). Xbox notes it’s also making Ubisoft games easier to find on the PC app.
Our ritual Game Pass sacrifice for the first half of June is frankly a bit painful. We’re losing Darkest Dungeon. Greedfall, Worms Rumble, Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance, and Limbo are also leaving the service. All five jump from Game Pass on June 15.
