  • The free titles for June 2023 have been revealed, with two beloved indie games comprising the list.
  • Adios is a short, powerful narrative adventure, while The Vale: Shadow of the Crown is an innovate audio-only RPG.

It’s no secret that Xbox’s maligned Games with Gold service has earned next to no positive feedback from the community in recent months and years, but that may be about to change (at least for players who love creative indie games).

Xbox has just revealed the titles heading to Xbox Games with Gold in June 2023, and it’s two genuinely amazing and critically acclaimed indie games. The announcement comes shortly after Xbox announced the new games heading to Xbox Game Pass in the next few weeks, which also included a solid list of games for players to explore. Here are the two games coming to Games with Gold this month, with a combined value of $37.98 and 2,000 Gamerscore:

  • Adios — June 1 to June 30, 2023
  • The Vale: Shadow of the Crown — June 16 to July 15, 2023
