We've got a few games arriving on Xbox Game Pass as part of the July 2023 lineup this week, and one of them is The Wandering Village, which actually launched in early access form (on PC) all the way back in September of 2022.

Of course, that means we already know what people think about this city-building simulation experience, and the reception has been very good so far! The game has a "Very Positive" rating on Steam based on over 3000 ratings, and the likes of Windows Central and Rock, Paper, Shotgun have also had nice things to say about it.

So, what is The Wandering Village? Basically, it's a game where you build a settlement on the back of a giant creature called Onbu, and the challenge is to create a thriving society, bond with the creature, adapt to different biomes, and fight off the likes of poisonous spores and bloodsucking parasites to ensure the survival of Onbu and your villagers.

"In a world where mysterious plants are spreading all over the earth, emitting toxic spores as they grow, a small group of survivors seeks shelter on the back of a giant, wandering creature they call 'Onbu'.

Become their leader, build their settlement and form a symbiotic relationship with Onbu to survive together in this hostile, yet beautiful post-apocalyptic world."

The Wandering Village arrives on Xbox Game Pass this Thursday, July 20th, and we're expecting it to be available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PC (still as part of early access / Xbox Game Preview for now).
