Xbox Game Pass removes foul-mouthed service record breaker this month

It's a new month, and a fresh batch of games are leaving Xbox Game Pass including a fantasy farming sim, a Nordic horror gem, and Squanch Games' High on Life.

Xbox Game Pass leaving June 2024 High on Life: a group of ugly aliens holding guns with faces

As is tradition, five more games will be wiped from the Xbox Game Pass slate on June 15. Among the Xbox games leaving the service is the title that held the record for the biggest third-party Game Pass day-one launch before Palworld came along. If your gaming trivia is up to snuff (or you simply read the article strapline) and you guessed it’s High on Life, then you get a (browser) cookie.

Having been injected directly into the list of Xbox Game Pass games in December 2022, High on Life quickly established itself as one of the most popular FPS games on the service, breaking the aforementioned record in the process. Considering it’s the grotesque brainchild of Justin Roilland’s Squanch Games, it’s unsurprising that fans of Rick and Morty and that style of comedy flocked to it in their droves.

In our 7/10 High on Life review we highlight its “senseless humor, arcade gunplay, and appealing visuals,” so be sure to check out one of the best Game Pass games before it disappears forever. Conversely, if crude, cringey humor gives you the ick, then steer well clear.

Here’s the full list of games leaving Xbox Game Pass this month:

  • Bramble: The Mountain King
  • High on Life
  • Rune Factory 4 Special
  • Spacelines from the Far Out
  • The Bookwalker: Thief of Tales

In the process of steering clear of High on Life, I’d recommend you take the mountain path up to see Bramble: The Mountain King. Dimfrost Studio’s story-driven adventure effectively takes you through a series of Nordic fables as protagonist Olle searches for his sister. It’s a beautifully spirited light horror game that is well worth sinking an evening into.

Though we’re still in the dark when it comes to the new Game Pass games that are set to arrive this month, I can imagine it won’t be long before we hear more – be sure to give our Google News feed a follow so you’ll be the first to find out when we do.
