Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass the subscription service loses six games today. The 15th of every month is usually a sad day for Xbox Game Pass subscribers, as it’s the day the service loses a new batch of games. As previously announced, on October 15, six Xbox Game Pass games will be discontinued, although subscribers to the service will have some time to purchase the games for a discount.
Some Xbox Game Pass subscribers may not even realize this, but there are several benefits to the service besides access to the vast library of games. Almost all Xbox Game Pass games are available at a 20% discount while on the service, so those who want to own the games and not worry about getting the boot can do so without paying full price. This discount will disappear once the games are removed from Game Pass, so anyone interested in taking advantage of it should act quickly.
The six games leaving Xbox Game Pass today are Blood roots, Echo generation, Into the pit, Ring in pain, Sableand The good life. All six games were available on Xbox consoles, PC and the cloud, so their departure will definitely sting. Xbox Game Pass subscribers are encouraged to test out all the games leaving today to see if they want to buy any of them to keep, but those with limited time on their hands may want to prioritize trying some before the others.
Xbox Game Pass games are leaving soon
- Blood roots
- Echo generation
- Into the pit
- Ring in pain
- The good life
Of all the games leaving Xbox Game Pass on October 15th, it’s the game with the highest review score Blood roots. Originally released in 2020, Blood roots is a hack and slash western game where players take on the role of the vengeful Mr. Wolf. It should appeal to those looking for a fast-paced action game to play, and is definitely worth a switch before it’s removed from the Xbox Game Pass subscription service.
The second highest rated game to leave Xbox Game Pass today is Echo generation. Once a day one Xbox Game Pass game, Echo generation is an RPG with a striking voxel art style and an aesthetic reminiscent of programs such as Stranger Things.
Into the pit, Ring in painand Sable received mostly mixed reviews, while The good life is the only game on the list of games leaving Xbox Game Pass today that had largely negative reviews. That being said, The good life is one of the latest projects from Swery, so fans of his bizarre brand of gaming may still find it worth checking out.
