Xbox game pass subscribers will soon say goodbye to The long dark, but the survival game just got a major update. Microsoft has not yet officially announced that all games will be leaving Xbox Game Pass in April 2023, but it has been confirmed The long dark departs after April 15.
Xbox Game Pass games are added every month, but when it comes to deletions, they are picked up in droves, and almost always on the 15th of every month or the last day of every month. There are at least eight games leaving Xbox Game Pass in April 2023, and it’s possible they’ll all have their last day on April 15. The long dark‘s new update will want to do this as soon as possible.
The long dark is confirmed to be leaving Xbox Game Pass after April 15, giving subscribers less than two weeks to try out the game if they haven’t already. It also gives them little time to take advantage The long dark‘s major Xbox update that has improved performance on Xbox Series X/S consoles. This update came along with the Tales from the Far Territory DLC for the popular survival game.
Who try The long dark while it’s still available on Xbox Game Pass and you want to keep it, keep in mind that it will be available at a discount as long as it’s on the service. Xbox Game Pass games are typically available for subscribers to purchase to keep for their library at 20% off the normal asking price. So while The long dark typically costing $34.99, Xbox Game Pass subscribers can buy it for $27.99 as long as it’s part of the lineup.
This, of course, applies to the other games leaving Xbox Game Pass in April 2023, so subscribers should try the titles coming out soon and see if there’s anything they want to keep. On the other hand, Xbox Game Pass subscribers might be more interested in the new games being added to the service instead, and hopefully a full list of everything on the way will be revealed sooner rather than later.
Previous release date announcements have updated fans on some of the new Xbox Game Pass games for April 2023, but the full picture has yet to be revealed. However, more information on that front should come sooner rather than later.
