Xbox Game Pass loses one of the best roguelikes of recent years

The latest batch of games heading to Xbox Games Pass has been revealed, alongside the batch of titles that will be leaving the subscription service later this month.

The most important of the upcoming Xbox Game Pass games is Hades. The Greek roguelite made quite an impression when it was released in 2018 and made it onto our list of best roguelike games. It puts you in the shoes of Zagreus as he tries to escape from the procedurally generated dungeons of the underworld. The game’s hack ‘n’ slash combat system has received much praise, as have the slick characterization and illustrations of various Greek gods.
