Xbox Game Pass Gets Minecraft Dungeons and More!
by Megan Spurr, Community Manager, Xbox Game Pass
Lately, I’ve been spending more time chatting with friends about games I remember playing as a kid, or which ones that are coming soon I’m really excited about. On that note, I’m happy to say Xbox Game Pass is here to help share in this excitement! This month brings new games, cult classics, and some dear favourites. Let’s jump in!
Alan Wake (ID@Xbox) – May 21
The acclaimed cult classic Alan Wake, from award-winning developers Remedy Entertainment, is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. As the best-selling writer Alan Wake’s wife disappears on their vacation, his search turns up pages from a thriller he doesn’t even remember writing. A dark presence stalks the small town of Bright Falls, pushing Wake to the brink of insanity in his fight to unravel the mystery and save his love.
Cities: Skylines (ID@Xbox) – May 21
We’re excited to welcome Cities: Skylines back to Xbox Game Pass! You’re in charge of a growing city, from the ground-breaking of its first streets to the ever-changing needs of thousands of citizens, you will design, build, and manage the city of your dreams. From public services to civic policies, challenge yourself to grow from a simple town to a bustling metropolitan hub.
Minecraft Dungeons – May 26
Available on launch day with Xbox Game Pass! Fight your way through an all-new action-adventure game, inspired by classic dungeon crawlers and set in the Minecraft universe! Up to four friends can play together, or you can brave the dungeons alone. Battle new-and-nasty mobs across action-packed, treasure-stuffed, wildly varied levels, all in an epic quest to defeat the evil Arch-Illager!
In Case You Missed It… Available to Play Today!
Golf with Your Friends (ID@Xbox) – May 19
Why have friends if not to play golf… with your friends! Take on multiple mini-golf courses from jungle adventures all the way to a sci-fi space station. Par-Tee online with up to 12 players and try your hand at different game modes including classic mode, hoops, and hockey.
