Xbox this week announced a new set of Xbox Game Pass games set to release in July, with 12 titles confirmed this time. Some of those games are day one releases, as we’ve come to expect from Xbox Game Pass, while others are already out and we’re looking forward to the coming weeks. In a surprising turn of events, some games have also returned to the Xbox Game Pass catalog after being previously removed.
The new Xbox Game Pass additions start today on Tuesday and there are now four games available. One of these, a day one release, is Last call BBS. The others are three Yakuza games that were previously available through Xbox Game Pass and are now back alongside all the other Yakuza games already available through the service.
The full lineup of games we know for July so far can be found below, along with details regarding when the games will launch and which platforms they’ll be available on.
