June is already shaping up to be an excellent month for Xbox Game Pass. Xbox has announced the latest additions to the service, with great gems like the melee brawler, For Honor, and turn-based RPG roguelike Darkest Dungeons. Ubisoft has been regularly updating For Honor since its release in 2017, and it’s worth jumping in to see what the game is about four years later. It will be available on June 3, 2021.
This month’s games also include two stunningly beautiful miniature games, The Wild at Heart and Backbone. The film, The Wild at Heart follows two children as they escape to a magical fantasy world filled with puzzles and magical creatures. Backbone stars an animal cast, including a raccoon detective trying to make ends meet who stumbles upon a massive conspiracy.
Super Animal Royale’s Founder Edition is now available to all Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers. Super Animal Royale is a top-down 2D battle royale game developed by Pixile and published by Modus Games. It has nearly 12,400 user reviews, 95 percent of which are positive, earning the game an “Overwhelmingly Positive” Steam User Rating.
The only negative news about Game Pass is that Microsoft has officially closed the extremely popular EA Play loophole. Users could pay $30 to extend their Game Pass Ultimate membership by four months. This is no longer the case, but we will keep an eye out for any future top Game Pass discounts.
