Xbox Live Game Pass is basically the Netflix of video games. (What happened to GameFly?) For a monthly fee, subscribers have access to a large video game library.
But, just like Netflix, titles come and go and it looks like we’ll be saying goodbye to a total of 21 games at the end of May. 19 of those 21 games are Xbox 360 titles. Here is the full list of games that will be taken out of the library after May 31st:
- Defense Grid 2
- Blood Bowl 2
- Age of Booty
- The BioShock trilogy
- de Blob 2
- Dead Rising 2: Case Zero
- NeoGeo Battle Coliseum
- Dig Dug
- Final FIght: Double Impact
- SEGA Vintage Collection Golden Axe
- Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising
- Bionic Commando: Rearmed 2
- Pac-Man Championship Edition DX
- Bound by Flame
- Sacred 3
- SEGA Vintage Collection Alex Kidd & Co.
- XCOM: Enemy Within
There’s no official word as to why these specific titles will be removed, but players can probably expect games to come and go regularly from now on. If you were interested in playing any of these titles, you still have a few days to check them out, although you may consider just purchasing them. All the titles in the Game Pass catalog are available to subscribers at a discounted price.
While these games have been announced to be removed, Microsoft has yet to announced which games will be added.
Xbox Live Game Pass is a service worth investing in if you want to experience a variety of games. For only $9.99 per month, players will have access to a game library with over 100 titles to download and play at any time. Also, new Xbox exclusive titles are added to the Game Pass library upon release, which is great if you are interested in purchasing upcoming titles.
