Xbox Game Pass Gets some New Arrivals
Microsoft has revealed the next wave of games coming to Xbox Game Pass. Among them are several titles – some oriented towards younger audiences, with others aiming for an older demographic. Gamers of every age should be able to find something they’ll love!
Here’s the headline entries:
Yakuza 0 took the gaming world by storm, blowing away audiences with sheer style. If you’ve seen memes with a certain Kazuma Kiryu floating around, congratulations: you’ve just found the source. Our own review called it a “highly-rated masterpiece”, and you can read the full thing here.
If you enjoy the story elements of Yakuza and want a game that focuses on that aspect of the gaming experience, Road 96 might have what you’re looking for. This title is a procedurally-generated narrative experience. Through this, it offers a totally unique path to freedom with each run, assuming you’re clever enough to get there. And with continuity between runs, it’s sure to keep you hooked.
Powerwash Simulator. It’s exactly what it says on the tin. Aiming to be a deeply satisfying, relaxing experience, you can recreate all those can’t-stop-watching videos you may have seen floating around on social media. Plus, we have a preview article about this game, which calls it “the perfect way to destress after a long day by letting you scrub away the mud and the muck at your own pace“. The lowered price tag, thanks to Xbox Game Pass, makes it all the more relaxing.
Yakuza 0, Yakuza Kiwami, Yakuza Kiwami 2, and Last Call BBS are available today. On July 7th, we’ll see the release of Matchpoint: Tennis Championships, Road 96, and DJMax Respect V. July 14th will bring PAW Patrol The Movie: Adventure City Calls, My Friend Peppa Pig, Overwhelm, Escape Academy, and PowerWash Simulator.
