As we move into June, Microsoft has announced a handful of Xbox Game Pass titles that will drop before its Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase.

And it’s a curiously short list. I have to assume we’ll learn more at that coming event, which is scheduled for June 13. Anyway, here’s what’s coming to Xbox Game Pass across PC, console, and mobile (cloud) soon:

Available now

The Wild at Heart (Cloud)
Explore a beautiful, handcrafted world full of charming puzzles, and deep secrets in The Wild at Heart, a whimsical story centered around two children that escape to a fantastical land filled with magical creatures to befriend and an oddball order of guardians who’ve lost their way. Welcome to the Deep Woods.

Coming June 3

For Honor (Cloud and Console)
War marches across the land of Heathmoor as heroes from rival factions clash in unending visceral battles. Use your finely honed skill to emerge victorious in a variety of thrilling single and brutal multiplayer modes. Grasp destiny in your hands and fight… for honor.

Coming June 8

Backbone (PC)
Raccoon detective Howard Lotor is not a hero. He can barely make rent. And yet he has stumbled across something so massive that it will shake the very fabric of society. Stunning visuals, an evocative soundtrack, and a daring narrative bring a dystopian Vancouver, BC inhabited by animals to life in this highly anticipated, post-noir adventure. Get to it, detective.

Coming June 10

Darkest Dungeon
Darkest Dungeon is a challenging gothic roguelike turn-based RPG about the psychological stresses of adventuring. Recruit, train, and lead a team of flawed heroes through twisted forests, forgotten warrens, ruined crypts, and beyond. Not only do unimaginable foes await, but stress, famine, disease, and the ever-encroaching dark.

Additionally, the following gams are leaving Xbox Game Pass on June 15: Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown (Console), Night Call (Cloud, Console, and PC), West of Dead (Cloud, Console, and PC), Wizard of Legend (Cloud, Console, and PC), and Observation (Cloud, Console, and PC).

    Yeah this definitely looks like a few placeholders ahead of the main event on the 13th.
