The Shadowrun Trilogy releases on all major platforms today, with it coming as a day one release on Game Pass for PC and Xbox. Because it is a trilogy, that means fans are technically getting three day one games today. Shadowrun is a unique tactical RPG series, set in a dystopian cyberpunk universe where magic has returned. In short, it’s a little bit of Cyberpunk mixed with high fantasy, creating a unique tone that meshes well.
Today, Xbox Game Pass adds four new games to the service, including three games from a trilogy and a standalone release. Xbox Game Pass has had a busy month, with the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase revealing a slew of new titles coming to the service over the next 12 months. With major first- and third-party projects in the works, as well as fresh Game Pass releases, the company’s next year or so should be a busy one. Of course, major games like Redfall and Starfield will be available on Xbox Game Pass, but the service also includes a slew of additional titles that fans might not have tried otherwise. For those who are interested, the Xbox Game Pass additions for June 21 could be just that.
The three games that are part of this include Shadowrun Returns, Shadowrun Dragonfall – Director’s Cut, and Shadowrun Hong Kong – Extended Edition. The first game is set in Seattle as players hunt a mysterious killer from its slums to its megacorps. The second one explores the mystery of Dragonfall, where German soldiers defeated a powerful dragon (taking four months to do so), but it seems that the dragon may not be gone. The final one drags players into a world of “conspiracy, corporate greed, Triads, social segregation, and gang wars” as the police hunt the player.
Luckily, of course, if someone is uninterested in Shadowrun Trilogy or Total War: Three Kingdoms for any reason whatsoever, there is still plenty on and coming to the service. Xbox Game Pass will add two games on June 23 – FIFA 22 and Naraka Bladepoint, with more coming later this month and in July.

Combined with Shadowrun Trilogy, fans are getting tactical games set in the past and future.
