The Banner Saga 3 and two other titles will leave Xbox Game Pass soon

By Heidi Nicholas,
Three more titles are set to leave the Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass for PC services on July 31st: RiME and The Banner Saga 3 will leave both Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass for PC, while Ashes Cricket will be departing Xbox Game Pass.

Ashes Cricket (leaving console)

Ashes Cricket

There's still a couple weeks to go until the 31st, so plenty of time to grab all of the Ashes Cricket achievements before the game leaves Xbox Game Pass. Its estimated completion time rests between 15 to 20 hours but if you're looking to speed up your completion time, the Ashes Cricket walkthrough reckons it will take you around 8 to 10 hours with one playthrough.

Rime (leaving console and PC)

Rime has been rated at 3.82/5 on our site, with a completion time of around 8 to 10 hours and a great Rime walkthrough to help you out if needed. It looks as though there's one achievement which might cause trouble: the Unbearable achievement is flagged as buggy, so be sure to check the achievement guide for more.

The Banner Saga 3 (leaving console & PC)

Banner Saga 3

The third of the beautiful Banner Saga games is on the way out of Xbox Game Pass. It's the highest-rated on this leaving soon list, at 4.13/5. It'll take you a little longer to complete this one if you haven't yet started; its estimated completion time is 35-40 hours, so be sure to check The Banner Saga 3 walkthrough if you want to get it done before the 31st.

While these three are on the way out, there's a whole host of new games on the way in: check our list of the eight games set to join Xbox Game Pass in July.

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!
