Xbox announced this week another set of Xbox Game Pass games set to release in July with 12 titles confirmed this time. Some of those games are day one releases as we've come to expect from Xbox Game Pass while others are ones that have already been out and are ones to look forward to in the coming weeks. In a surprising turn of events, some games have also made a return to the Xbox Game Pass catalog after previously being taken out.
The new Xbox Game Pass additions begin today on Tuesday with four games available now. One of those, a day one release, is Last Call BBS. The others are three Yakuza games previously available through Xbox Game Pass that are now back alongside all of the other Yakuza games already available through the service.
The full lineup of games that we know of so far for July can be found below along with the details pertaining to when the games will launch and on what platforms they'll be available.
