Hello, gamers! Welcome to your June Xbox Game Pass update.
If you can stop playing State of Decay 2 long enough to read this, we’ve got some great additions to the Xbox Game Pass catalog this month to tell you about, like MotoGP 17, Mega Man Legacy Collection 2, The Technomancer, Wasteland 2: Director’s Cut, and Disneyland Adventures. They’re all coming to Xbox Game Pass on June 1, in addition to the over 100 more great games included in your subscription. Later in June, action-packed dungeon crawler Next Up Hero will join the catalog. And be sure to keep an eye out for more awesome game announcements coming soon.
Let’s take a closer look at the new additions:
Next Up Hero (Coming June 28)
Inspired by classic games like Zelda: Four Swords and Smash TV, this is a crazy-fast co-op dungeon crawler with unique heroes, epic loot, and tough-as-nails monsters that will kill you. A lot. Every time you die, you leave behind an echo who can be raised by the next hero to fight as AI followers. The more heroes die, the more echoes are raised, and the stronger the community grows and a robust community is needed to take down the most punishing levels in the game. As the saying goes: the harder the level, the greater the loot!
Xbox Game Pass members can look forward to playing Next Up Hero this June, the same day its available digitally on the Microsoft Store. With Next Up Hero, find your favorite Hero, master their attacks, upgrade their skills, and start gearing up before the competition can catch up.

Mega Man Legacy Collection 2
Celebrate the Blue Bomber’s 30th anniversary by jumping, shooting, and sliding through a colorful variety of the hero’s unforgettable adventures. This collection showcases the platforming icon’s evolution from the 16-bit to 32-bit era, followed by a triumphant return to his glorious 8-bit roots. Slay the vampiric Shade Man below a robot graveyard in Mega Man 7. Face off against the airborne Tengu Man in his flying fortress from Mega Man 8. Make the burly Concrete Man from Mega Man 9 crumble with your Mega Buster. Travel to a ‘90s vision of cyberspace to delete the electrifying Sheep Man in Mega Man 10. Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 is also packed with a host of new features, such as extra challenges, a museum of Mega Man history, and much more.
Forge the destiny of Mars in this action-RPG set on a cyberpunk planet during the War of Water. Technomancers are mage-warriors who use their innate ability to harness destructive electrical powers. In The Technomancer, you are on the brink of becoming a full-fledged Technomancer, but to do so you must cross deadly wastes, avoid pursuers, and protect a terrible secret. A dynamic dialog system enables you to alter the course of the plot depending on your decisions. You will also craft equipment, weapons, and armor, recruit companions and explore tribal communities of Mars along your journey.
Wasteland 2: Director’s Cut
When words fail, bullets prevail. In Wasteland 2: Director’s Cut, the ultimate edition of Wasteland 2, you take on the role of a Desert Ranger – a lawman dedicated to civilizing the post-apocalyptic world. You’ll visit dozens of locations carved out by survivors of the post-atomic age, bringing with you your own brand of frontier justice. The Wasteland is full of groups looking to stake their claims in this brave new world. Sure, the Desert Rangers may want to ensure peace and safety, but not everyone’s so idealistic. Some might be your allies, and others, your enemies. And yet, more just want to use you as much as you want to use them. Your decisions in dealing with the factions of the Wasteland will determine the fate of its people, as well as your own.
Disneyland Adventures (Xbox Play Anywhere Title)
