We're not too far through 2024 yet, and already there has been a flurry of Game Pass news, so we thought it a good time to update and refresh our massive list of all the upcoming Game Pass games for 2024 and beyond! This round-up is a beast, as we've included everything that has an Xbox Game Pass or PC Game Pass release date, games with broader release windows, and those that haven't yet had any release window confirmed.

The Xbox Partner Preview event in particular gave us some new release dates and announcements, meaning this list got a good old shuffle around. Take a look through to see all the games coming to Game Pass over the next few years, ranging from the long-awaited arrival of AAA hits to day-one additions of intriguing new indie titles.

We make sure to keep this article updated as more announcements are made and as games hit the service, so be sure to keep an eye on it!

May 2024

Announced back in 2019, we now have a release date for action-adventure game Senua's Saga: Hellblade II, which comes to Xbox Game Pass on day one on May 21 2024.


Galacticare, initially set to launch into Game Pass in 2023, is now set to launch on May 23. It'll see you designing and running a hospital with all the chaos that brings: hiring staff, looking into experimental treatments, and taking care of bizarre patient needs ranging from postmodern art to claustrophobic spaces.


The gorgeous adventure game Hauntii comes to Xbox Game Pass on May 23, combining twin-stick shooting action, haunting powers, puzzles, and more as a little ghost sets out to find answers.

Moving Out 2

Moving Out 2 comes to Game Pass on May 28 as the "couch moving, couch co-op" sequel to 2020's Moving Out, which itself joined Game Pass as a surprise day-one addition.


Puzzle platforming game Humanity first launched for PlayStation consoles and Steam last year, but comes to Xbox and Game Pass on May 30.

Lords of the Fallen

CI Games confirmed dark fantasy action-RPG Lords of the Fallen will be coming to Game Pass on May 30, although we don't yet have a specific date.

June 2024

Rolling Hills

Game Pass gets a charming addition on June 4 with Rolling Hills, which combines life sim and restaurant management elements as it tasks you (a robot chef) with running a sushi restaurant. Along the way you'll need to make new friends and help out your neighbors, as well as doing the necessary parts of running a restaurant, such as getting the ingredients you need, obtaining new recipes, serving customers, and customizing your restaurant.


Firework is a horror puzzle game where Lin Lixun works to investigate a mystery, and is set to come to PC Game Pass on June 4.

Still Wakes the Deep

Still Wakes the Deep was announced at the Xbox Games Showcase, and hits Game Pass on June 18. It's a first-person narrative horror game about a Glaswegian oil rig worker in the North Sea.

July 2024

Dungeons of Hinterberg

Dungeons of Hinterberg is an action-adventure RPG in which you do everything from fighting monsters to building relationships in the Alpine village known as Hinterberg. It's set to come to Xbox Game Pass on July 18.

Frostpunk 2

Our hopes were answered, and the sequel to the excellent Frostpunk will come to Game Pass as a day-one addition. It'll arrive first for PC and PC Game Pass on July 25, before coming to Xbox Series X|S and Game Pass "later." Prepare for gruelling gameplay and high stress levels.

August 2024

SteamWorld Heist II

SteamWorld Heist 2 comes to Game Pass as a day-one addition on August 8. It charts the tale of Captain Leeway and his Steambots crew as they fight their way across the waves to find out what's behind a new danger in the Great Sea. As you might expect from an ocean adventure, there's a big focus on real-time naval combat as well as other captain duties such as organising and expanding your crew, whiling away time in bars, making off with loot, and more.

September 2024

Stalker 2: Heart of Chornobyl

Stalker 2: Heart of Chornobyl brings first-person shooter action to Xbox Game Pass at launch, when we’ll be exploring a post-nuclear open world.

"Early 2024"

Bounty Star: The Morose Tale of Graveyard Clem

Bounty Star: The Morose Tale of Graveyard Clem is an upcoming action game where we play as Clementine McKinney as she fights her way across a post-post apocalyptic desert in a rather snazzy mech. It was delayed from 2023 into early 2024.

"Fall 2024"


First-person RPG Avowed was announced in 2020 and at last has a release window of fall 2024. It's set in the fantasy world of Eora, and is set to join Xbox Game Pass at launch — you can check out our round-up of everything we know about Avowed in the meantime!

In fall 2024 we get "quirky" co-op puzzle game All You Need is Help, where we help strange fluffy creatures to solve puzzles and work together.



Retro sci-fi 2D adventure Replaced has now been delayed into 2024. We’ll play as Reach, an AI trapped in a human body, and will explore and fight our way through Phoenix City. The pixel art here is some next-level stuff...

Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn

Flintlock: The Siege of Dawn is a fantasy action-RPG set to launch into Xbox Game Pass in 2024, and seems to have us fighting both against the dead and the gods themselves.

Pigeon Simulator

Pigeon Simulator asks you to "Become a pigeon. Poop on everyone. Destroy everything," when it comes to Xbox Series X|S and Xbox Game Pass at some point in 2024. Not only are you a pigeon, you're apparently a time-traveling pigeon, who's been sent through time to thwart a goose. Chaos!


Narrative adventure game Sopa is set to come to Game Pass at some point in 2024. Miho heads to the pantry on a seemingly simple mission to get a potato for his grandma's soup, and is instead taken to a strange land — what's more, every time he manages to make it back to the kitchen with another ingredient, things have somehow changed.

Age of Mythology Retold

We at last have a release window for the Definitive Edition of 2002's much-loved game — Age of Mythology Retold hits Game Pass later this year!

Ghost Bike

Ghost Bike was revealed during a recent Annapurna Interactive Showcase as an adventure game in which you play as "a streetwise kid from Freehub City on a mission to revive the last of the Ghost Bikes" — those who can traverse between the living world and the world of the dead. It's set to hit Game Pass in 2024.

Indiana Jones and The Great Circle

Machine Games' first-person action-adventure Indiana Jones game popped up during Xbox Developer Direct with a fantastic gameplay reveal and a release window of 2024. Indiana Jones and the Great Circle is set between the Raider of the Lost Ark and The Last Crusade movies.

Magical Delicacy

Magical Delicacy looks to be made up of a lot of different elements: it's a pixel platforming game inspired by Metroidvania aspects where you cook meals and brew potions while exploring the town and pursuing the path to becoming a proper witch. Magical Delicacy is set to launch into Game Pass in 2024.

33 Immortals

Spiritfarer devs Thunder Lotus Games announced 33 Immortals as a "co-op action-roguelike for 33 players" where you're a "damned soul" going against "God's final judgement." It's been given an Early Access release window of 2024.

Dead Static Drive

Indie survival horror title Dead Static Drive — which has already spent almost a decade in development — can now at last be shifted into the "2024" section of this list.

Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess

Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess was announced as a day-one Xbox Game Pass addition, and the Xbox Partner Preview event gave us a release window of 2024. Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess features action and strategy elements and explores the spirit and mortal realms, with a focus on Japanese aesthetics.

Creatures of Ava

The beautiful Creatures of Ava was revealed at the Xbox Partner Preview event as a colorful action-adventure creature-saving game coming to Game Pass this year. Our role is to rescue creatures on the planet Ava from the infection which threatens them, using music and the skills of the planet's native people.

The Alters

Sci-fi survival adventure game The Alters comes to Xbox Game Pass and PC Game pass later this year, telling the bizarre story of Jan, who needs the help of alternate versions of himself to survive after crashing onto a strange planet.

Ark II

Survival game Ark II has seen a big delay — instead of launching in 2023 as originally planned, Ark II will now launch at the end of 2024, when it will star Vin Diesel as Santiago and Auli'i Cravalho as his daughter Meeka. Expect it to expand heavily on the scale and scope of its popular dino-packed predecessor.


Sleight of Hand

Behold: the first, lonely entry into the "2025" section of this list. Sleight of Hand hits Game Pass next year, bringing an interesting mix of deckbuilding and stealth action, magic, the occult, and more.

"Coming soon"


Flock is a colourful, laid-back multiplayer co-op game where you soar contentedly through the world and gather up creatures to add to your herd. It looks all kinds of beautiful, and the most recent Annapurna Interactive Showcase told us it's "coming soon" to Xbox Game Pass.

Nirvana Noir

Noir adventure game Nirvana Noir is currently set as "coming soon" to Game Pass, and it sounds like a chaotic one. "The city of cosmic beings is under threat in two parallel realities - one where the Big Bang was never fired, the other exploding in color and sin. It’s up to you to solve the mysteries of the Bigger Bang in this follow up to the award-winning Genesis Noir."


2D sandbox RPG Keplerth is coming "soon" to Game Pass with the challenge of surviving a fierce and strange alien planet.

Volcano Princess

Volcano Princess, a parenting-sim-RPG adventure, is also coming "soon" to Game Pass, asking us to raise the next monarch of the Volcano Kingdom.


Then there's Depersonalization, a TRPG featuring a whole lot: "Dice! Cthulhu! Bad End! Multi-branch! A different world starting from zero! The game consists of multiple modules, each of which has multiple endings and branch routes, striving to build a diverse, themed world." It's set to come to Game Pass soon.


Hollow Knight: Silksong

Hollow Knight: Silksong is the long-awaited sequel to Hollow Knight, so it’s great to hear that it’s coming to Xbox Game Pass at launch, even though we don’t have a specific release date yet. If you like Ori but wish the games were darker and more challenging, keep an eye on this (and go play the original in the meantime, it's ace).

South of Midnight

South of Midnight was announced during the Xbox Games Showcase as a third-person action-adventure game set in the American Deep South with a focus on magic realism. It doesn't yet have a release date or release window, but it'll launch straight into Xbox Game Pass.

Vapor World

Action-adventure platforming game Vapor World — which looks to have a similar feel to Lies of P — doesn't yet have a release date, but is set to come to Xbox Series X|S and Xbox Game Pass at launch.


Here’s one we’ve been waiting for for a while: Fable was announced back in 2020 as a “new beginning for the legendary franchise” with “fantastical creatures and wondrous places,” and we haven’t really heard anything since. There’s no hint yet of a release window for Fable, but we do know it joins Xbox Game Pass on day one. In the meantime, check out our round-up of everything we know about Fable!

Clockwork Revolution

Clockwork Revolution was announced during the Xbox Games Showcase as a steampunk first-person RPG and a big project for developer inXile entertainment. The announce trailer has a Bioshock look about it, but we don't yet have a release date or window for this one.


Contraband was announced as a "co-op smuggler’s paradise set in the fictional world of 1970s Bayan" — we don't yet have a release date for this one, which seems a little way off yet, but we'll keep an eye out.

Harmonium The Musical

Harmonium The Musical is a narrative adventure and an interactive sign language musical. Announced at The Game Awards 2023, it was confirmed as coming to Game Pass on day one, but doesn't yet have a release date.

Neon White

Neon White is a "single-player speedrunning FPS" about the assassin from Hell, White, who's given a chance to live in Heaven. It's set to come to Xbox Game Pass at some point, but we don't have a date yet.

Citizen Sleeper 2: Starward Vector

Citizen Sleeper's sequel, Citizen Sleeper 2: Starward Vector, doesn't yet have a release date, but is set to come to Xbox Game Pass at launch, when it'll see you gathering a crew, manning a ship, and navigating the Starward Belt.


Everwild, revealed back in 2019, is another one that seems to have disappeared after its announcement, although a report suggested Everwild is targeting a 2024 release after being “restarted from scratch”. We’ve heard no official update on when Everwild might emerge, so here it goes, into the “unknown” section.


TO A T is a narrative adventure game which comes from Katamari Damacy game designer Keita Takahashi about a teenager (called Teen) with "an odd posture" as they go through life in their small town, attending school and dealing with bullies, until a new ability changes everything.


Bushiden is an action-adventure game with platforming elements — details are pretty scarce at the moment but it seems that in Bushiden we are dealing both with the disappearance of our sister and the fact that the evil Gaoh has returned with an "cybergentic army" which we'll need to defeat. It was confirmed back in 2021 that Bushiden would join Xbox Game Pass on day one, but we don't yet know a release date.

Little Witch in the Woods

Little Witch in the Woods is already available in Game Preview with Xbox Game Pass, but was meant to launch in full in 2023. However, the end of 2023 came and went with no update, so we're moving Little Witch in the Woods into the Unknown section for now. Little Witch in the Woods is a charming pixel adventure game where you train to become a fully-fledged witch, and consists of a mix of crafting, exploration, puzzle-solving, and life-sim elements — for more on that, check out our Little Witch in the Woods interview.


Marauders is described as a first-person multiplayer sci-fi dieselpunk looter shooter where we play as a space pirate — it was meant to launch into Game Preview for PC Game Pass in 2022, but we've not yet heard word of a new release date.


First-person sci-fi horror game Routine was announced back in 2012, and then seemed to vanish until it was re-revealed back in June of this year. It’s set to join Xbox Game Pass at launch, whenever that launch may be.

Slime Rancher 2

Slime Rancher 2 is available in Game Preview/Early Access with Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass already, but if you're waiting to play until the achievements are added with the full release of the game, there's a bit longer to go — we don't yet have a concrete release date for when Slime Rancher 2 launches in full.

So, what do you think? Anything on there catch your eye, or take you by surprise? What do you think of the gaming horizon for Xbox Game Pass? Let us know what you think in the comments!
