The Xbox Game Pass Is Losing Four Indie Titles This Month
Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass is a subscription based service that runs in a similar vein to the likes of Netflix or Hulu. Rather than allowing fans to download and stream movies and television shows, the Game Pass features an ever growing collection of games for players to experience. Every month, new games are added to the service and sometimes, there are a few titles that leave as well. This month there are a total of 4 titles leaving the Xbox Game Pass.
The news comes by way of Polygon, which reported that four indie games are set to leave the subscription service at the end of this month. The four unfortunate titles that are exiting stage right are Portal Knights, Kingdom New Lands, Late Shift, and Sacred Citadel. All four of the games have been available as part of the Xbox Game Pass since April 2018. Curious about the titles riding off into the sunset? Here’s some info for each of them below:
- Kingdom: New Lands – Kingdom: New Lands builds upon the award-winning gameplay and mystery of Kingdom by introducing an abundance of new content to the IGF-nominated title while maintaining the simplicity and depth that legions of monarchs have come to experience and enjoy. Travel to the New Lands and welcome the deluge of new mounts, merchants, and vagrants that call these isles home, but be wary of the new obstacles that threaten your arrival — for not just the greedy creatures block your way but even the environment itself can defeat you.
- Late Shift – Late Shift is a high stakes FMV crime thriller. After being forced into the robbery of a lucrative auction house, mathematics student Matt is left proving his innocence in the brutal London heist. Your choices will have consequences from the very start, right through to the very end. One small decision could change the entire outcome in a choose-your-own-adventure style gameplay that can lead to one of seven conclusions.
- Portal Knights – Join this cooperative, 3D sandbox action RPG to level up your character, craft epic weapons, conquer enemies in real-time, and build almost anything! Craft your adventure. Forge your hero. Become the ultimate Portal Knight!
- Sacred Citadel – The once peaceful land of Ancaria is in grave danger. The evil Ashen empire has enslaved its population and is using the orc-like Grimmoc to wipe out the Seraphim, who swore to protect it. In order to defeat the empire you will have to prove yourself as a warrior by riding terrifying mounts, acquiring earth shattering skills and looting powerful weapons and valuable treasures. Grab your friends and join the resistance!
The Xbox Game Pass is available for players at the price of $9.99 a month and currently has over 200 titles for fans to enjoy, including some newer games such as Fallout 4 and Just Cause 4.
