Xbox drops two more free games for Game Pass users

Xbox drops two more free games for Game Pass users

There's one certified banger here

Xbox Game Pass’ latest additions have arrived, and one of the two games is an underrated gem I can’t wait for more people to dive into.

July is shaping up to be a prosperous month for Game Pass users.

Journey to the Savage Planet and Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 have both already landed on the subscription service, and they’ll now be joined by both Cricket 24 and The Case of the Golden Idol on console, cloud, and PC.

Cricket 24 is exactly what it sounds like. It’s Big Ant Studios’ latest sports sim.

Unfortunately, the game only managed to secure a score of 57 on Metacritic, with many reviewers criticising its inconsistency and lack of innovation compared to previous franchise entries.

The Case of the Golden Idol though is most definitely a game that you should add to your to-play list.

ICYMI: Indiana Jones and the Great Circle is set to launch later this year and will land on Game Pass as a day one release.

Developed by Color Gray Games, The Case of the Golden Idol is a 2022 detective-based puzzle game that sees players tasked with solving a mysterious death.

Spanning 40 years in the 18th century, players will review 11 different cases in order to attempt to solve the unexplained case that’s presented before them.

“A new kind of detective game that allows you to think and investigate freely. Discover clues surrounding 12 strange and gruesome deaths and build your own theory. Pick your suspect, deduce the motive, unmask the awful truth,” teases the synopsis.

The game garnered a very respectable Metacritic score of 84, and it’s got overwhelmingly positive player reviews on Steam.

Now is the perfect time to catch up as a sequel, The Rise of the Golden Idol, is set to launch this year. That instalment will take players to the 1970s.

Both games are available on Xbox Game Pass now.
