June’s Xbox Games with Gold announced

Ever since Microsoft debuted its Xbox Game Pass subscription service we have seen the console manufacturer’s legacy Xbox Live Gold fall somewhat out of relevancy. Despite this, Xbox Live Gold and its Games with Gold program remains – though with a noticeable decrease in the quality of its offerings. That said, June’s offerings have now been announced, and they include two interesting looking indie games.

Making the announcement via the Xbox Blog, Dan Hickey, the Marketing Program Manager at Xbox said “Explore the worlds of two unique, narrative-driven games this June with Games with Gold! On Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, sticking to one critical moral decision is harder than you think in the poignant Adios, and then starting on June 16 listen closely as you try the outside-of-the box audio driven adventure The Vale: Shadow of the Crown.”

As mentioned, the two titles included are as follows:

Though perhaps not the most exciting line-up, both titles offer unique experience, with The Vale taking you on an audio-based adventure which leverages sound and haptic controller feedback in order to “break down the barriers between you as the player and your character as you feel your enemy’s breath, listen to the crunching of footsteps or the clang of weapons.”

Adios is a cinematic first-person game in which you play as “a pig farmer in Kansas who has finally had enough of your role helping the mob dispose of bodies on your farm.”

With Xbox Live Gold costing subscribers just as much as PS Plus Essential, hopefully Microsoft opts to revamp the service sooner rather than later.
