Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass service will welcome two big Ubisoft games in June with Assassin’s Creed Origins and For Honor: Marching Fire Edition. This is likely just the beginning, as Microsoft announced last month that it was working with Ubisoft to “bring even more incredible games to the Game Pass library.”
Assassin’s Creed Origins was released back in 2017, and it marked a new beginning for the series with Ubisoft moving away from the stealth-focused gameplay to add new RPG elements. Ubisoft continued in that direction with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, which may eventually come to Xbox Game Pass at some point.
Ubisoft also announced today that Assassin’s Creed will receive a patch on June 2 that will make the game run at 60FPS on Xbox Series and PS5 consoles. That’s great news for a nearly five years old game, and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey received a similar treatment last year.

For Honor was already available with Xbox Game Pass, but the new Marching Fire Edition includes the Marching Fire expansion that adds four new heroes as well as the Arcade and Breach game modes. New Game Pass additions in June also include the space combat shooter Chorus, the puzzle game Disc Room, as well as the Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection anthology.
You can find the full list of games with their platform and availability dates below:
- For Honor: Marching Fire Edition (Cloud, Console, and PC) – June 1
- Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection (Console and PC) – June 2

Microsoft also announced today that five games will leave the Xbox Game Pass catalog on June 15. The list includes Darkest Dungeon, Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance, Greedfall, Limbo, and Worms Rumble. As usual, you can take advantage of up to 20% discounts on these games if you want to keep playing them after they leave Microsoft’s game subscription service.
