and live on Freeview channel 276
What’s better than video games? Free video games!
Thankfully, Xbox’s masterful Game Pass subscription service and its monthly Games with Gold promotion dish out plenty of them on a regular basis.
OK, so these games aren’t technically ‘free’. But with an existing Xbox Gold or Xbox Game Pass subscription, you’ll be able to download them at no extra cost, and play them for as long as you pay your monthly fee.
There are already hundreds of top quality titles - both big and small - on Xbox Game Pass, so we’ll be covering only which games are confirmed to be arriving to and departing the service in the month of June 2022.
Here is everything you need to know.
Which games are coming to Game pass in June 2022?

We’ll update this last as and when more titles are revealed - as Microsoft usually unveils more each week.
But if you’re thinking the early pickings look slim, fear not...
The Xbox team has hinted at some "surprises" to come as part of the huge Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase on Sunday 12 June.
“We’re not done for June, so keep an eye on The Wire or PC and Xbox Game Pass Twitter and Instagram for more games, more release dates, and possibly a few surprises now and again,” they said.
“We’ll see you on 12 June for the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase, and back here soon! Cheers!"
