Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass service offers some amazing value. As long as you're signed up, you can play a huge library of games for a single fee.
About the only downside is that games eventually leave the service after a certain period of time. With that in mind, the console games being removed this month on 15th April have now been revealed. All up, there are three Xbox One titles and two Xbox 360 releases.
The Book of Unwritten Tales 2
Legend foretold it. Prophecies predicted it. Chosen ones chose to believe in it. Now the fantasy spoof adventure saga continues. Join Wilbur, Ivo, Nate and Critter in another classic point-and-click adventure in the wicked world of Aventasia. Help them fulfill their destiny. A destiny as yet unwritten.
Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition
Guacamelee! is a Metroidvania-style action-platformer set in a magical world inspired by traditional Mexican culture and folklore. The game features melee combat, parallel dimensions and same-screen co-op. The original Guacamelee! received wide critical acclaim and was a finalist for both IndieCade and the Independent Games Festival's Excellence in Visual Art award.
In Prey, you awaken aboard Talos I, a space station orbiting the moon in the year 2032. You are the key subject of an experiment meant to alter humanity forever – but things have gone terribly wrong. The space station has been overrun by hostile aliens and you are now being hunted. As you dig into the dark secrets of Talos I and your own past, you must survive using the tools found on the station -- your wits, weapons, and mind-bending abilities. The fate of the Talos I and everyone aboard is in your hands.
MX vs. ATV Reflex - Xbox 360
Think fast and hang on to your ride as you take independent control of the rider and take the ultimate test of mettle. Dual controls let you tear it up with death-defying tricks and high-flying freestyle action. Fight for traction and dig up the track to leave your mark. Hone in your skills through havoc-laden environments that come alive, creating ever-changing conditions. Rush through raging rivers, slash though swampy everglades, and blaze through desert dunes as the terrain gets altered with every turn. Gain on your opponents lap after lap as you force the competition to carve new race lines, but beware, they can do the same to you.
Samurai Shodown II - Xbox 360
This is a fighting game released in 1994 that follows 15 samurais in their individual quests. The rage system, which was popular in the first game, has been further enhanced. Not only does attack power rise when the gauge is full, the player can also use a special technique that can break the opponent's weapon and force the opponent to fight unarmed. The game also allows for more movement techniques such as back-stepping, rushing forward, and ducking, allowing for even more strategies.
If you don't want the fun to end, you can always consider purchasing any of these games digitally. Each one is currently 20% off its standard price. Once again, you have until the middle of this month before you can no longer play them with your Xbox Game Pass subscription.
