Xbox Game Pass Adds Need for Speed Unbound, Story of Seasons, and More in Late June


Microsoft has revealed the titles they’ll be adding to Xbox Game Pass on PC and consoles in late June, and the lineup runs a wide gamut. The headliner is Need for Speed Unbound, the latest in the open-world racing series from developer Criterion. Other additions include Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town (a remake of one of the most-beloved classic Harvest Moon titles), FIST: Forged In Shadow Torch, the new-release title The Bookwalker, and more.

Here are your headliner Game Pass titles for the next couple of weeks:

Need for Speed Unbound (Cloud, PC, and Xbox Series X|S) EA Play – June 22

From Wccftech’s review – “Need for Speed Unbound is the franchise’s best entry in a decade, although the competition for that title wasn't particularly stiff. The game offers polished tech, good (if slightly dated) open-world design, and a varied array of events and challenges, but still lags behind the current open-world racer pack leaders. The fantasy of becoming an underground racing champ is also hampered by a restrictive, ill-considered progression system. Nostalgic fans will find plenty to like here, and more general players might want to consider a test drive once the game is marked down, but “need” may be a strong word to attach to Criterion’s latest.”

Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town (Console and PC) – June 29

“Your farming life begins in Mineral Town, a charming village surrounded by nature. You’ve returned after many years to restore your late grandfather’s farm to its former glory. Care for crops, livestock, and more as your very own story of seasons unfold.”

These games will also be available in late June:

  • The Bookwalker (Console and PC) – June 22
  • Bramble: The Mountain King (Cloud, Console, and PC) – June 27
  • F.I.S.T.: Forged In Shadow Torch (Cloud, PC, and Xbox Series X|S) – June 27
  • Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town (Console and PC) – June 29
  • Arcade Paradise (Console and PC) – July 3
  • Sword and Fairy: Together Forever (Console and PC) – July 5

Xbox Game Pass grants players access to more than 100 games for 10 bucks a month, while Xbox Game Pass Ultimate also gets you Xbox Live Gold and EA Play access — you can check out a full list of available console and PC games here.  You can sign up here.

Not the most packed lineup, but hey, maybe it’s time for a little old-school Harvest Moon/Story of Seasons action. Which Game Pass titles do you plan on tackling over the next few weeks?
