It’s once again time for another batch of new games to be added into Xbox Game Pass, and there are two wonderful PlayStation games making their Xbox debuts and heading straight into the service: Neon White and Tchia. What’s even better is that they’re just two of the eight games coming your way as part of the Xbox Game Pass July lineup.

Let’s talk about those Xbox debutants first, then. Both Neon White and Tchia have been among the best PS5 games of the last couple of years, and with their addition as new Game Pass games, those on the green team can enjoy them as well.

Neon White is a slick, fast-paced FPS game with a glorious aesthetic and banger soundtrack. Its move to Xbox and addition to Game Pass has actually been a long time coming – it was featured in a roundup of indie titles coming to the service over a year ago, but was never seen or heard of in Xbox communications again. Thankfully, it’s finally arriving on July 11.

Then there’s Tchia, a super charming action adventure game that was one of last year’s most underrated and underappreciated PS5 exclusives. Last week, it finally hit Nintendo Switch, and now today’s announcement confirms that it’s heading to Xbox and Game Pass as well. This gorgeous adventure joins Game Pass on the same day as Neon White.

Alongside these two great games, two completely new titles will be released day-one into Game Pass as well. On July 16, subscribers will be able to jump straight into both Flock (a unique-looking co-op creature collector) and Magical Delicacy (a culinary narrative platformer).

So, the Xbox Game Pass games list is swelling once again. With the final few months of the year being stuffed with big day-one Xbox exclusives like Avowed and Indiana Jones and the Great Circle, it’s nice to see there are still plenty of games being ferried onto the service in the meantime.
