Disappointed with Games with Gold? Xbox Game Pass has new July games

While there were no Xbox Series X games included in this month’s Games with Gold lineup, the same can’t be said for Xbox Game Pass.

The rival subscription service from Microsoft has been ramping up its offering, and July could be the perfect month to drop Games with Gold and try Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

While it costs more, it also comes with more benefits and has constantly offered more titles to play each month than Games with Gold.

And July will be no different, with a total of six new games coming to Xbox Game Pass over the coming weeks.

Disappointed Games with Gold subscribers who might have lost interest should check out what is being offered.

The end of this week will see the launch of three new games, and you will need to have Xbox Game Pass Ultimate access them all.

Tropico 6 will be available to play on July 6 across console, cloud and PC platforms, meaning everyone can download and play.

Meanwhile, Dragon Quest Builders 2 will also be available to play via the Microsoft Cloud streaming service.

UFC 4 is also coming to EA Play on the same date, and that will be another game to play if you have Ultimate.

As many will already know, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate allows gamers to access and play a library of games Xbox, PC and Mobile platforms.

This accessibility was recently expanded to allow Xbox Cloud streaming on Windows 10 PCs and Apple phones and tablets, on Xbox.com.

Xbox Cloud Gaming is also now powered by custom Xbox Series X hardware, which means faster load times and improved frame rates.

Ultimate subscribers can head over to xbox.com/play on Microsoft Edge, Chrome, or Safari on their PC or mobile device to start playing.

The second half of July will also contain some notable additions for Xbox Game Pass, including the launch of Bloodroots, Farming Simulator 19 and The Medium.

All three games are coming to the Cloud platform, meaning access to an Xbox Series X exclusive on your phone or browser.

It should also be noted that A Plague Tale has just recently upgraded for Xbox Series X and is currently available on Game Pass.

So there will be the games to check out this week if you’re planning on switching from Games with Gold:

‘Sad reality’ Lorraine Kelly left disappointed as she's unqualified for jobs away from ITV

“Steve will be filming for my show, and I’ll be writing about the journey. I will, of course, be visiting his grave, raising a glass and toasting ‘the boss’.”

Lorraine shared her icy swim with ITV viewers at the time, as she stripped down to her bikini and braved the cold waters.

She said on the programme: “This is a first for me, this is Antarctica… and I’m going in.”

Lorraine could then be seen removing her furry hat and warm coat to reveal a pretty bikini before taking the plunge.

PS Plus free games NEWS: Great update for disappointed PS4 and PS5 April subscribers

PlayStation Plus remains Sony’s main subscription service in 2021, with the free games helping to keep it in the headlines each month.

April’s new lineup of titles has proven to be a great mix of genres, headlined by Days Gone.

But while the first-party exclusive is one of the more eye-catching, Oddworld Soulstorm is a fresh title that includes a free PS5 upgrade.

That’s great news for anyone with a PlayStation 5 console, and there is no limitation on who can download it.

January’s Maneater was only available to gamers with a PlayStation 5 console, excluding PS4 console owners.

This led to some frustrations among subscribers and disappointment that they could miss out on future games.

The good news is that there are no PS5 exclusives this month, and there is something even better coming.

If you’re not a fan of Days Gone, Oddworld: Soulstorm and Zombie Army 4, Sony offers something just as good.

One of the best PS4 games released 2017, Horizon Zero Dawn is being made available to download for free in April.

That won’t be happening just yet, but Horizon Zero Dawn will be available to download for free starting on April 19.

The best part is that it will be open to everyone, so you won’t need a PlayStation Plus subscription to grab it.

The official description for anyone who hasn’t played it yet, reads: “In an era where Machines roam the land and mankind is no longer the dominant species, a young hunter named Aloy embarks on a journey to discover her destiny.

In a lush, post-apocalyptic world where nature has reclaimed the ruins of a forgotten civilization, pockets of humanity live on in primitive hunter-gatherer tribes. Their dominion over the new wilderness has been usurped by the Machines – fearsome mechanical creatures of unknown origin.

“Shunned by her tribe since birth, Aloy has never known a mother’s embrace or the acceptance of a community.

“Her only companion was Rost, the stern, impassive recluse who fostered her. Rost taught Aloy to survive any physical hardship and to scorn comforts as weakness – but he couldn’t provide the answer to the questions which troubled her above all else: who her parents were, and why she was cast out.”

Horizon Zero Dawn is part of Sony’s Play At Home lineup which already boasts some cracking games.

Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition will be available for free download between April 19 8:00pm PT / April 20 04:00 BST / 05:00 CEST and May 14 8:00pm Pacific Time / May 15 04:00 BST / 05:00 CEST.
