With so many titles being available on the subscription service, it can be hard to find something to play. Here are ten Xbox Game Pass June 2020 games suggestions to check out and try on the service. These should all be available to play right away, or close to within the month.

Hopefully there’s a good variety of games presented here, and maybe you’ll find something new to check out that you might have overlooked or not have known it was on the service. This is a console focused listing, and it’s not in a ranked order. Best to give them all a whirl if you have time or interest in them! Look forward to a monthly listing from us every month.

#10: ReCore

An exclusive Xbox title that was a tad rough when it originally released, it has since received a Definitive Edition upgrade and it’s generally solid. This takes place on a hot, desolate sandy planet where things didn’t go according to plan. It was supposed to be terraformed and you awaken way past your initial delivery date.

As Joule, you’ll be working with your adorable robotic pals in order to figure out what happened and to deal with the corrupted robots that cross your path. It has some neat platforming elements, color based combat and a lengthy narrative. With the Definitive Edition extra challenge dungeons and more content was also added, it’s a good time to jump back in.

#9: The Long Dark

Venture out into the hostile cold Canadian north as you attempt to survive. The game can be played in two ways, within a narrative based story mode. Or, through a hardcore survival option. Both carry similar themes, and concepts as you try to keep on going despite many problematic situations.

You’ll need to scavenge, craft and move in order to preserve yourself another day. It won’t be easy, and might take some learning to really get a full hold of this survival title as it’s somewhat different from the others out there.

#8: Gears of War: Judgment

Back on the Gears of War train after taking a break, this prequel is a fun way to get into the series. It’s a very different sort of entry with more streamlined controls and a very different take on the multiplayer experience. As Baird, Cole Train and some new additions to the franchise you’ll be working through some of the earlier times of E-Day. It has a focus on four player cooperative action, arcade options and lots of extended narrative elements.

The multiplayer is still easily enjoyable today with bots filling in for empty player slots. The modes here are far different from other entries, and you’ll be playing with a mix of COG instead of a versus situation. There’s also Overrun, among some smaller tweaks in coop action defending against the invading Locust horde.

#7: Cities: Skylines

This is the first re-use of a game on the lists since we started, and this is for good reason. Not only is this an incredible city building game, it’s also returning to Game Pass after having been swapped out. This really is the ultimate city sim featuring tons of in-depth options, large scale creation and so many dynamic options to develop your buildings into a mega metropolis.

There are a number of ways to play, and the game has a ton of DLC options to choose from if you’d like to expand things further. It really is just a treat to play if this is your type of game. It looks great, handles well and allows for some truly massive creations.

Xbox Game Pass ReCore

#6: Moving Out

This is a wonderful local coop experience where you’re trying to just be a mover. Play alone, or together locally with up to four players. You’ll be aiming to move items out of houses, businesses and other weird buildings as fast as possible. You’re playing against a clock that’s always winding down as you’ll want the best possible score.

Things start out simple, but quickly evolve and get absolutely wild. You’ll be moving while ghosts roam, crossing the river like Frogger and even sending furniture down slopes. It’s a great family title, and it can be an aggressive time as you try to get everything packed into the truck.

#5: Ryse: Son of Rome

An early Xbox exclusive, you’ll be heading to Roman times during a large scale conflict with the growing barbarian problem. As a high end soldier of war you’ll experience many traumatic and intense moments. This features a more streamlined melee based combat system, providing opportunities for intense executions and combined tactics.

You’ll also be able to harness the power of Kinect for voice commands if you still have that, or just enjoy some interesting set moments that were based off of using it. Past that, the game features some stunning visuals, gorgeous environments and many wild narrative segments that I don’t really want to spoil. Aside from the campaign, there’s also a rather fun gladiator multiplayer that you can enjoy. It’s really neat, and very dynamic with shifting stages.

#4: No Man’s Sky

The game that continues to get updated and in general upgraded, this is the ultimate space adventure title. Fly on your spaceship, and also venture onto planets as you discover all sorts of weird locations. Name things, buildings things and meet the weird wildlife of what feels like an endless universe. You’re also able to connect with others through certain ways, and enjoy a sprawling selection of solar systems. The discovery, and how far you’ll go is entirely up to your determination to travel. Explore, survive and have some fun in the cosmos.

#3: Golf With Your Friends

This is a rather delightful time, you’re just playing some rather insane mini golf. Enjoy this with up to twelve players locally, or online. Customize your pal in many ways, and work through a number of courses that each have eighteen holes to them. They vary in theme, and challenge.

There’s one that has a desert Egyptian style, another with pirates and of course just a regular timber one to get warmed up. It’s easy to jump in to online matches with others, or to play with friends. It’s just a generally simple, and charming game where you play mini golf to the extreme.

Xbox Game Pass DayZ

#2: DayZ

This is the ultimate open world zombie survival game. Its multiplayer only, and offers hours of open ended survival. There’s real point to it, aside from the interactions that you have with others. Zombies are only a small part of your troubles as you deal with the environment, other players and some bugs as in glitches.

You’ll need to loot for supplies, craft certain items and build forts if you make it that far. If the vanilla servers aren’t for you, there’s also a community server area with modded options that provide things such as PVP or more dynamic zombie situations. Maybe one with increased bears, the options do vary a ton.

#1: Alan Wake

This is one incredible narrative driven venture through darkness and light. Fight the problems of booking writing, as you search through many horrific scenes. Behind this, is an attempt to find your missing wife. Use the light to your advantage as you fight what hides in the shadows. This is a remarkable Remedy title with a high sense of mystery, intrigue and high level production.

A true stand out and definitely worth your time. There’s also some extra DLC content that expands the story, and this is not something to miss. This game will truly deliver, with so many interesting psychological thriller elements that are driving its plot forward.

That’s the list for June 2020, hopefully you found some interesting games. It’s our goal to provide an interesting list of suggestions every single month. Just keep in mind that over time some games get removed, or re-added and there’s always something new to play.

These lists hopefully provide a varied offering whether you want family games, casual party ones or even gripping multiplayer. Basically for every age group or type of audience out there gaming. We have a review for one of them below, or you can check out the general platform hub for additional coverage of the ecosystem of games.
