1Roguelites and Roguelikes Not to Be Missed on Xbox Game Pass

Neon Abyss best roguelike games

We love a good roguelike game, and thankfully there are plenty of them on Xbox Game Pass.

Sure, roguelike games can be annoying; you make a lot of progress, then you die. Kaput; back to the beginning. But rather than rage-quitting, a good roguelike draws you back in, luring you with the promise of permanent upgrades and the knowledge that, now you know what you’re doing, you can get justĀ thatĀ bit further. And so, before you know it, one more go becomes a dozen more goes. And even though you didn’t think you stood a chance just mere hours ago, you’ve now taken down the bosses that stood in your way.

The best roguelikes on Xbox Game Pass come in various shapes and sizes. From first-person shooters to platformers and even farming (!), there’s likely something for everyone. And few games offer as much satisfaction as a roguelike does when you overcome one of its tricky obstacles. We just can’t get enough of them, and so we thought we’d share with you some of our favourites.
