4 new games release on Game Pass

Got your Game Pass subscription ready? You’ll want to make the most of it this week as 4 new games land on the service. With debuts aplenty, there’s the shock inclusion of a critically acclaimed PlayStation adventure joining the Xbox Game Pass ranks. 

There’s no doubt that Game Pass – Xbox and PC – is the finest of all the gaming subscriptions. And it’s weeks like this which prove it as 4 new games become playable for free, all included in your Game Pass fee. 

It’s a week full of variety too, with some cricket, an action platformer, one of the finest detective games of recent years, and – most excitedly – an adventure being ripped straight from the PlayStation archives. 

Cricket 24 – July 9 (Cloud, Console, PC)

Cricket 24 may not be a new release, but it comes to Game Pass at a near perfect time.

Having first released back in 2023, developed by Big Ant Studios, it’s a cricket simulation game, giving focus to The Ashes and more. Cricket 24 boasts the most licensed content of any cricket game to date, featuring international teams and letting you experience the sport in detail.

The question? Is that sport for you?

The Case of the Golden Idol – July 9 (Cloud, Console, PC)

The Case of the Golden Idol is a detective game like no other.

Landing on Game Pass on July 9th, it’ll see you dropped into a point-and-click adventure set in the 18th century, running a hand-drawn art style.

You play as a detective tasked with solving a series of mysterious deaths as the gameplay revolves around examining crime scenes, piecing together clues, and making deductions to uncover the truth.

Clever puzzles, a captivating story, and some seriously charming presentation are all promised. Just take a look at the Overwhelmingly Positive Steam reviews for proof of that.

Neon White – July 11 (Cloud, Console, PC)

Neon White is a first-person shooter with a speedrunning twist, coming to Xbox One and Series X|S on July 11th.

Already available elsewhere (grab it on Steam if you like), you play as White, a demon slayer competing in Heaven for a chance to stay permanently.

Levels are designed for fast times, with you using discarded weapons and parkour moves to efficiently eliminate demons. It’s received positive reviews for its unique blend of action and speedrunning and so release onto Xbox Game Pass should see this come across as a bit of a no-brainer.

The Xbox Store page will help you out with the download you need.

Tchia – July 11 (Cloud, PC, Xbox Series X|S)

Tchia is another releasing on July 11th for Xbox Series X|S. For us, this is the biggest of the big deals concerning Game Pass this week.

This is an open-world action-adventure game that has picked up some critical acclaim on PlayStation, giving you the chance to play as Tchia, exploring a fictional archipelago inspired by New Caledonia.

The game emphasises exploration and freedom, allowing Tchia to soul-jump into any animal or object, giving you unique movement abilities to navigate the world and solve puzzles.

Keep your eyes peeled for our full review of Tchia on Xbox soon, but with this one known for its beautiful visuals, relaxed atmosphere, and focus on discovery, we’re sure it’s going to be seen as another great Game Pass addition.

More to come

Not sold on these 4 new Game Pass games? Well, there’s more coming too and next week we will welcome in Magical Delicacy, Flock and Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess. Admittedly, a few games will leave in that same week, but ultimately it feels like a brilliant time to make the most of Game Pass.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore. Gamertag is neil363, feel free to add me to your list.
