After the wave of Bethesda games debuting on Xbox Game Pass during the E3 showcase, Xbox are settling back down into their usual routine. An official blog post from Xbox reveals what we can expect from the service in the first half of July.
Heading up the new additions are titles Tropico 6 and Farming Simulator. Sports fans will also be pleased with the arrival of UFC 4 via EA Play. The Octagon will await anyone with an EA Play, Xbox Game Pass PC, or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription.
Perhaps the most interesting news among the lot is the arrival of The Medium on Xbox Cloud Gaming. The psychological horror, which launched as an Xbox Series S/X console exclusive in January, will be available to play on Android, iOS, and Windows 10 browsers. It will also take advantage of the recent upgrades Xbox Cloud Gaming has received.
Here is a rundown of all the games coming to Xbox Game Pass in the first half of July.
