Xbox Game Pass For June 2021
With Game Pass there is no loser! It is a win win every time!
June has arrived and so has Winter here in South Africa which means more cuddling by your console and PC and enjoy more games than ever. This month, Xbox Game Pass has rewarded us with four new titles to play, as well as some free DLC for a variety of games.
Travel to a mysterious hidden realm in The Wild At Heart. Carve a path of destruction through an intense, believable battlefield in For Honor. Enter a post-noir roleplaying detective adventure in Backbone. Lastly, we go to the dungeons in the challenging gothic roguelike turn-based RPG that is Darkest Dungeon.
The Wild At Heart (Cloud) (ID@Xbox) (1st of June):
A mysterious hidden realm. Two precocious kids fleeing hardship. Magical creatures and an oddball order of guardians who have lost their way. A stygian evil imprisoned. Welcome to the Deep Woods. Collect and deploy a swarm of quirky Spritelings; small magical creatures for you to command. Break stuff, collect loot, fight enemies, build new paths, and more! A unique and sequestered world rich with centuries full of lore.
Woods, caves, coastline, ancient shrines… The Deep Woods is full of puzzles to be solved and secrets waiting to be uncovered. Gather rare resources like magical crystals, scrap, electrical components, and more to build new structures, items, and upgrades!
Take on precarious wildlife and supernatural foes with the unique abilities of your Spriteling swarm and your trusty vacuum, the Gustbuster! “The dark is bad!” – A common saying among the denizens of the Deep Woods, and for good reason. Malevolent beings lurk in the shadows here and you may just find yourself wanting to stay near a campfire light until sunrise.
For Honor (Cloud and Console) (3rd of June):
Enter the chaos of war as a bold Knight, a brutal Viking, or a deadly Samurai. Play the thrilling story campaign or fight in brutal PvP modes, now on new dedicated servers. Make the fight your own by customizing your Heroes with thousands of different weapons, emblems, and more. Earn rewards while you learn the art of combat with a brand-new training mode that takes you from Apprentice to Master.
Backbone (PC) (ID@Xbox) (8TH of June):
It takes a certain kind of person to take on the greatest evils of the world. A keen intellect. Relentless courage. An unstoppable desire to see justice done. But you? You’re just trying to make rent. You’re not special. You’re not a hero. Thrust into unfortunate circumstances, you find yourself with no other option than to unravel what might be your biggest case yet. Get to work, detective.
Darkest Dungeon (Cloud, Console, and PC) (ID@Xbox) (10th of June):
Darkest Dungeon is a challenging gothic roguelike turn-based RPG about the psychological stresses of adventuring. Recruit, train, and lead a team of flawed heroes through twisted forests, forgotten warrens, ruined crypts, and beyond. You’ll battle not only unimaginable foes, but stress, famine, disease, and the ever-encroaching dark. Uncover strange mysteries, and pit the heroes against an array of fearsome monsters with an innovative strategic turn-based combat system.
As always, carefully plan your time… Game Pass is about to make use of every minute you have…
