Amnesia Collection, Soma, and More Leaving Game Pass April 15th

Xbox Game Pass has a pretty respectable but not totally consistent catalog. While certain staples are there to stay, games come and go regularly. Six games are leaving on April 15th, with half of them from Amnesia developer Frictional Games.

The six departures mostly seem to consist of horror and horror-themed titles. Among them are Frictional Games’ Amnesia Collection, Amnesia: Rebirth, and Soma. Also leaving is WB Games’ co-op zombie shooter Back 4 Blood and the co-op comedy-horror action game Research and Destroy. Finally, there is the procedurally generated multiplayer platformer Phantom Abyss. All six games leave Xbox Game Pass on April 15th.

The Amnesia Collection includes Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, and the DLC Amnesia: Justine. Outside of Game Pass, it retails for $29.99 on the Xbox digital store. Amnesia: Rebirth is the third full game and a sequel to The Dark Descent and is also usually $29.99.

Meanwhile, Back 4 Blood is Turtle Rock Studios’ spiritual sequel to the Left 4 Dead series. While it didn’t quite live up to its predecessors, players can grab it from the Xbox Store for $69.99. On the other hand, the turn-based co-op action game Research and Destroy sees a trio of scientists battling supernatural creatures across Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa. Fans can still buy it for $19.99.

Finally, Devolver Digital and developer Team WIBY’s Phantom Abyss combines platforming with asynchronous multiplayer. Players can see each other as phantoms, similar to the ghost cars in some racing games. Players can’t interact with each other directly, but their phantoms will open doors and trigger traps. The Xbox version of Phantom Abyss retails for $24.99.
