NFS Unbound Coming to Xbox Game Pass; That Was Awfully Fast

Xbox Game Pass will soon add seven games. The main course will be Need for Speed Unbound.

We have learned list of titles that will hit PC/Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate in June/July 2023. There are seven of them, including the still fresh Need for Speed Unbound - for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and PC Game Pass subscribers only - and the debuting adventure game The Bookwalker: Thief of Tales.

Above all, the release of the new NfS... although, in truth, this was to be expected, given the steep price cuts for a game - reaching as high as 70% - which was released on December 2, 2022. This probably means that the latest installment of the iconic racing game series from Electronic Arts did not sell very well. Ratings it collected not bad, however, so it's worth checking out.

The full list of titles (along with platforms and dates) can be found below.

Xbox Game Pass for June/July 2023

  1. Need for Speed Unbound (PC, XSX/S consoles and cloud) - available June 22 (Xbox Game Pass Ultimate / PC Game Pass)
  2. The Bookwalker: Thief of Tales (PC and consoles) - available from June 22 (launch)
  3. Bramble: The Mountain King (PC, consoles and cloud) - available from June 27
  4. F.I.S.T.: Forged In Shadow Torch (PC, XSX/S consoles and cloud) - available June 27 (release on XSX/S)
  5. Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town (PC and consoles) - available June 29
  6. Arcade Paradise (PC and consoles) - available July 3
  7. Sword and Fairy: Together Forever (PC and consoles) - available July 5

On June 30 Xbox Game Pass will lose:

  1. DJMax Respect V (PC, consoles and cloud)
  2. Empire of Sin (PC, consoles and cloud)
  3. Matchpoint: Tennis Championships (PC, consoles and cloud)
  4. Olija (PC, consoles and cloud)
  5. Omori (PC, consoles and cloud)
  6. Road 96 (PC, consoles and cloud)

Some games are regularly removed from PC/Xbox Game Pass and it will be no different in the second half of June. This time there are six of them - the most "painful" loss seems to be th excellent adventure game Road 96, but as it is quite short (it takes 7-8 hours to complete), those who want to complete it should easily make it in ten days that remain.

On the other hand, the next items to hit Game Pass will be announced in early July.
