More Games Coming Soon to Xbox Game Pass

By Heidi Nicholas, 17 days ago
Microsoft have today announced a further two games set to come to Game Pass this month, along with two more which we can expect in the future.

August 13th

August 13th sees the arrival of The Bard's Tale Trilogy. The Bard's Tale Trilogy are considered as some of the original, classic RPGs. The Trilogy has been newly remastered, and contains the three original games: Tales of the Unknown, The Destiny Knight, and Thief of Fate.

August 27th

Following on from The Bard's Tale Trilogy, The Bard's Tale IV: Director's Cut comes out on August 27th and heads straight to Game Pass. After 100 peaceful years, an evil force has risen up, necessitating a hero (hint: you) to recruit your party and face this new evil in turn-based combat.

Later on in the year, we can expect to see the Wasteland 30th Anniversary Edition, another remaster. Whilst The Bard games are medieval-style fantasies, the Wasteland 30th Anniversary Edition takes place in a post-apocalyptic setting. The Wasteland 30th Anniversary Edition also heralds the arrival of the sequel Wasteland 3. Wasteland 3 is set in the snowy regions of post-apocalyptic Colorado, and should release and arrive at Game Pass in Spring 2020.

All in all, it looks to be a strong lineup for RPGs. Whilst you wait for these arrivals, why not have a look at the other games coming to Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass for PC?

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
