- Xbox Game Pass Leaving Games This Month
In June, the early wave of Xbox Game Pass games includes Chicory: A Colorful Tale, a top-down adventure that lets players paint their way through a whimsical world. A stylish work simulator that puts you in the shoes of a car mechanic called Car Mechanic Simulator 2021 is also coming to the service this month.
The next wave includes some major games like Slayers X: Terminal Aftermath: Vengance of the Slayer and Amnesia: The Bunker. Here are all the Xbox Game Pass June 2023 Games:
Chicory: A Colorful Tale – Available
Top-down action game Chicory: A Colorful Tale takes place in a world where you can color anything. Change the world by using your painting abilities to travel to new locations, solve puzzles, support your friends, and more!
Something awful took place. All of the colors in the world disappeared with Chicory, a famous artist and master of the Brush. It’s up to you, Chicory’s biggest supporter, to take up the Brush in her place. It’s a big task, but you’re up to the challenge!
With its cutesy art style, Chicory: A Colorful Tale initially seems like an average indie game that makes you feel good. The puzzles are clever, and at the end of each chapter, you can let out your inner child by fooling around with paint.
The gameplay is simple, but there are a variety of puzzles that make the most out of your painting abilities. There are the expected “take out a wall” and switch puzzles, but there are also code-breaking secret passages and other creative ways to manipulate the world.
Farworld Pioneers – Available
One of the bigger new arrivals is Farworld Pioneers, a sci-fi colony-building sim from Igloosoft and tinyBuild.
Set on a series of alien planets, you’ll need to mine for resources, hunt for wildlife, create complex farms, and build a ship that can transport surviving colonists to new worlds.
While reviews haven’t poured in yet, Farworld Pioneers seems to be the sort of game that could tickle the fancy of fans of sci-fi sandboxes like Terraria.
Plus, it’s pixelated 2D visuals and multiplayer functionality add to the appeal. That makes it a solid day-one pick for Game Pass subscribers.
Car Mechanic Simulator 2021 – June 1
Car Mechanic Simulator 2021 is the latest entry in the CMS series and a solid upgrade over its predecessors.
The game gives you a chance to start fresh as a garage owner and work your way toward building a service empire. You can acquire, repair, and sell cars for a profit. You can even invest in new tools and expand your garage space. There are 72 cars and 4000 unique parts to work with, so you’ll have plenty to keep you busy.
It’s a solid simulator for fans of the genre, although it gets repetitive later when you begin to repair more complicated and labor-intensive models.
Slayers X: Terminal Aftermath: Vengance of the Sla – June 1
On June 1, publisher No More Robots and developer Big Z Studios will release the first-person shooter Slayers X: Terminal Aftermath: Vengance of the Slayer for Xbox Series, Xbox One, and PC via Steam and Microsoft Store. It will be accessible through Xbox Game Pass as well.
The Big Con – June 1
For anyone who spent a large portion of their childhood in the ’90s, The Big Con is an affectionate trip back in time. The debut game from developer Mighty Yell catches the spirit of that decade with vibrant art and scrappy protagonist Ali.
Hustle your way across 90s America as a runaway teen con artist in this hilariously charming crime adventure. The Big Con has that trademarked adventure game humor and a cast of wacky characters that’ll tickle your funny bone, from the pawnbroker who calls you “sir” to the Rad Ghost — a figment of Ali’s imagination that delivers advice in the style of a cartoon.
Amnesia: The Bunker – June 6
Frictional Games’ fourth Amnesia game should finally arrive this month despite facing some delay. Originally scheduled to launch on March 16, the psychological horror game, Amnesia: The Bunker will now hit Xbox Series X|S, One, and PC on June 6, around the same time a few other horror titles land on Game Pass.
Like other Amnesia games, The Bunker has players locked in a location with something stalking them. But this time around, the studio promises to add some major changes that should make things even more terrifying.
As you figure out what has happened, you will face oppressing terrors in the Bunker’s tenebrous dark corridors.
The sandbox design will allow for multiple solutions to its challenges, and an ever-present monster will react to your actions, making the experience stressfully intense.
You can solve puzzles your own way as you scavenge for weapons, explore every nook and cranny of this cruel hellscape, and try not to make any sudden movements, or the monster might get you.
Hypnospace Outlaw – June 6
Hypnospace Outlaw is a funny, clever detective game that’s a bit of a guilty pleasure.
Released in 2019 by Tendershoot, Hypnospace Outlaw puts you in the shoes of an Enforcer for Merchantsoft — the creator of Hypnospace — as you dig this fictional universe for shenanigans like copyright infringement, harassment, and malicious software. Each case you tackle leads to new areas of this strange world populated by a cast of internet archetypes.
It’s a layered, complex game that respects your ability to solve puzzles without putting you through a lot of unnecessary hoop-jumping or hand-holding. It’s also a brilliantly funny pastiche of a specific chapter in the Internet’s history, a place where creativity and community collide with a certain sense of fun.
Rune Factory 4 Special – June 8
Marvelous’ 2013 3DS release Rune Factory 4 Special is a farming and life sim game that easily earned its own fanbase with a balanced gameplay experience. This re-release upgrades the visuals to HD and adds new content, such as the Newlywed mode, which includes visual novel-like cutscenes with spouses.
Your character falls from the sky into a small town located in Selphia, a region ruled by the native dragon Ventuswill. You then find yourself appointed as the town’s prince or princess and set about cultivating the land, managing its people, and exploring dungeons.
The gameplay is extremely open-ended from the start, granting you almost complete control over what you do with each day. Even mundane activities like sleeping will level up your experience, and consuming bread will unlock new cooking recipes and weapon skills. Even though permadeath is present, it’s not a major concern as the local doctor is more than willing to revive you for a fee.
Stacking – June 8
The adventure puzzle video game Stacking was created by Double Fine Productions and released by THQ in February 2011 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Like Double Fine’s prior Costume Quest, it was a smaller title made during the development of Brütal Legend.
Jump into more than 100 different dolls from Tim Schafer’s Double Fine Productions to explore a vintage world filled with living Russian stacking dolls and use their special skills to overcome a variety of challenges.
Dordogne – June 13
In the narrative adventure game Dordogne, you take on the role of Mimi, a young woman who is reconnecting with her younger self and the child who was in awe of everything.
Embark on a moving journey through your formative years as you immerse yourself in a singular narrative experience and discover the thousand summer hues of the Dordogne.
