We’re ready for another wave of games to be inducted into the Game Pass Hall of Fame this month, including the highly anticipated Ubisoft epic Assassin’s Creed Origins. Xbox has now unveiled its first batch of Game Pass games for the month, with the other titles confirmed including For Honor: Marching Fire Edition, Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection, Chorus, Disc Room and more.
Keep in mind that this is just the first wave of games we’re expecting this month, and another set of Game Pass entry announcements are expected soon. Additionally, as we all know, Xbox and Bethesda’s Game Showcase is also happening this month on June 12th, so we’re sure there will be plenty of other games coming to the service this year and beyond.
Assassin’s Creed Origins 60FPS patch confirmed on June 2nd
We’ve known for a few months that Assassin’s Creed Origins will be coming to Game Pass, but you can also play it on Xbox Series X/S at a higher framerate since Origins is getting a 60FPS patch on June 2ndjust in time for the Game Pass Drop on June 7th.
If you also want to experience all of the DLC for Origins now when it comes to service, the Season Pass is $39.99 on the Microsoft Store. Game Pass Ultimate members will also get access to the Origins Deluxe Pack on June 7th. The Deluxe Pack includes the Ambush at Sea mission, The Desert Cobra Pack (which includes an outfit, two legendary weapons, a legendary shield, and a mount), and three skill points.

The all-new PS Plus launches in the US and Europe this month
The all-new PlayStation Plus service, including new game subscription tiers Extra and Premium, launches June 13 in the US and June 23 in Europe. The new games library will appear to introduce a competitor to Game Pass, with some well-known PS5 titles set to join the service immediately, and some third-party titles like Red Dead Redemption 2, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and more.
What it won’t be is which ones to release New Games on duty for the first day of release. This means you won’t be able to play God of War Ragnarok via PS Plus on release day. But if you have the patience, you will probably still be able to play the game through the service about 1-2 years later.
First off, your Game Pass subscription got to currently not active – I repeat, you got to Not have an active Game Pass for this to work. Once you are sure, proceed to the next step.
Next, you need to invest in Xbox Live Gold worth up to 3 years. You can easily buy 12-month Xbox Live Gold codes from Amazon or other retailers, which cost $60/£50 depending on your region.
I recommend stacking 2 years of Xbox Live Gold
The maximum stack amount for gold subscriptions is 36 months (costs $180), everything beyond that is lost. To ensure security for those who currently have a Gold membership, I recommend sticking with the 2 year value only (costs $120/£100).
Well, here’s the fun part. Once you’ve redeemed these codes and stacked your Xbox Live Gold membership to your liking, you can convert that time into Xbox Game Pass Ultimate at a 1:1 ratio.
Go to the Xbox Live Gold upgrade page and convert the paid time directly to Game Pass Ultimate. If you’ve never used the upgrade feature before, it costs $1/£1 (total cost is $121/£101). If you’ve already used this, the upgrade will cost $14.99 / £10.99 instead.
In total, you pay a maximum of $135 for 2 years of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (instead of $359). If you manage to do a 3-year conversion, you’ll pay at most $195 instead (instead of $539). Now there is a big discount. When you’re done, just make sure you turn off auto-renewal too.
