While THQ Nordic is set to release a Destroy All Humans! remake on July 28, the inclusion above is the originally released Xbox version for those itching to take over humanity and just can’t wait for the remake. IGN’s original Destroy All Humans! review called the adventure “a very basic box of good and bad free-roaming shooting,” which “boasts terrific personality, a great premise and some generally solid action.”
Games With Gold will also offer Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse for free in June, which originally released in 2014 and was praised in IGN’s review as as adventure that “succeeds by building a funny, gorgeous world around its tried and true Metroidvania gameplay.”
23 Best Xbox Game Pass Games
Coffee Talk is the newest game on this month’s list of free games, a ’90s adventure game-inspired journey that offers “players friendly conversation and late-night warm drinks to the colourful and fantastical inhabitants of alternative-Seattle including elves, aliens, and orcs.”
Lastly, Sine Mora is a side-scrolling shooter with time-manipulation gameplay thrown into the mix. IGN’s original Sine Mora review earned the game a 9, as we said “With a relatively manageable Story Mode and a ridiculously difficult Arcade Mode, pilots of all skill levels should check out Sine Mora.
