Xbox news: What new Xbox Game Pass Ultimate titles games are coming?

Anyone with an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription has been told exactly what new titles are coming to the service over the coming weeks.

Microsoft made the big reveal today, confirming its plans for July 2021 will include a total of nine new games.

Some of these are playable now, while others will be launching over the next week or so. The game that can be downloaded and played today is Worms Rumble.

Dumping the turn-based gameplay for a more free-flowing format, Worms Rumble still includes those familiar weapons and audio cues.

This can be downloaded today and will be followed by Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered, Iron Harvest, and Prodeus.

These games will be available to play on June 24, followed by the next set of Xbox One and Xbox Series X games on July 1.

Gang Beasts will be among them, and there are plenty of gamers waiting to try out the new beat-em-up on the Xbox console.

As mentioned above, while nine new games are being released this month, only those with an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription will get to play all of them.

That’s because some of them will be arriving on Console, some on Cloud and one on PC.

The full list of games can be found below and include the following:

'It’s highly unlikely': Sophie Countess of Wessex on why her children don't use HRH titles

Discussing any family rows, she said: “If things were kicking off inside, right from the year dot, I’d say: ‘Right… outside!’

“You come back in again and the mood is entirely different.

“Louise would take herself off on her bike, and James is very self-motivated to get out, so actually, it was never a struggle.”

Sophie Wessex and Prince Edward’s home, where they raise their children, is one of the largest in the Royal Family.

Taito Milestones Is A Collection Of Arcade Archives Titles Heading To Switch


The Arcade Archives series has been a huge part of the retro scene on Nintendo Switch, with an impressive range of titles. Taito has had its share of releases, and is now planning to launch Taito Milestones as a collection of some 1980s classics.

Due in February 2022 in Japan, it was initially revealed in Famitsu (thanks, Gematsu), so we certainly hope to see a localised version announced in the future. Made in collaboration with Arcade Archive port masters HAMSTER, it includes the following eight games – only Chack’n Pop is yet to have an eShop release.

  • The Ninja Warriors
  • Halley’s Comet
  • The Fairyland Story
  • Chack’n Pop
  • Elevator Action
  • Alpine Ski
  • Wild Western
  • Front Line

The design of the official website and the Famitsu article highlight the tease that more titles may come in the future; it’s unclear at this stage but it seems possible that it could follow a similar approach to Capcom Arcade Stadium.

Let us know if you’re keen to see this get a release outside of Japan!

Five Legendary Bethesda Titles Get the FPS Boost Treatment on Xbox Series X|S Today

Hot on the heels of officially welcoming Bethesda’s world-renowned studios to the Xbox family, we’re excited to announce that five of the biggest titles from their vast catalog of games – Dishonored: Definitive Edition, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition, Fallout 4, Fallout 76, and Prey – will all be updated today to enable FPS Boost on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. And it’s not just owners of these titles that get to take advantage of FPS Boost; all these titles are available with FPS Boost for Xbox Game Pass members too.

As a reminder, FPS Boost employs a variety of new methods for nearly doubling the original framerate on select titles. Higher, steadier framerates make games visually smoother, resulting in more immersive gameplay. We partnered closely with developers to enhance the experience while maintaining the game’s original intent. And while not applicable to all games, these new techniques can push game engines to render more quickly for a buttery smooth experience beyond what the original game might have delivered due to the capabilities of the hardware at the time. For the five titles we’ve shared today, gamers can expect to see an increase from 30 fps to nearly 60 fps while enabling FPS Boost.

In some instances, because there are higher graphics requirements to enable FPS Boost technology, we’ve had to reduce a game’s resolution to ensure it both runs smoothly and plays great. In those select cases, such as Fallout 4 and Fallout 76 in this latest title announcement, FPS Boost is not automatically enabled for Xbox Series X gamers. For all titles receiving this update, gamers will see a clear indicator if a title is running FPS Boost.
