Xbox Game Pass is kicking off July with a major surprise, as Grand Theft Auto V has returned to the service. Rockstar’s sales juggernaut leads an otherwise light month for Game Pass, which brings Capcom’s Exoprimal as a day-one launch.

This isn’t the first time that Grand Theft Auto V has been on Game Pass. It was previously on the service circa 2021 but removed from it that August. Rockstar has a history of putting its games on Game Pass for a brief window before pulling it, as it also did with Red Dead Redemption 2.

Fortunately for fans, Grand Theft Auto V is now back on both Cloud and Xbox consoles right now. Players can access both the Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S versions of the game. The only catch is that it’s not available for PC players.

Game Pass has a handful of other games coming in July. Dinosaur shooter Exoprimal launches on the platform on July 14, and factory automation game Techtonica will get a day-one release on July 18. Otherwise, this month’s line-up features a few hidden gems. Here’s the full list of games coming to Game Pass in July.

  • Grand Theft Auto V (Console, Cloud) — Available now
  • Sword and Fairy: Together Forever (Console, PC, Cloud) — Available now
  • MxPixel 3 (Console, PC, Cloud — July 6
  • Common’hood (Console, Cloud, PC) — July 11
  • Insurgency: Sandstorm (PC) — July 11
  • Exoprimal (Cloud, PC, Console) — July 14
  • Techtonica (Cloud, PC, Console) — July 18
  • The Cave (Cloud, Console) — July 18

The tradeoff here is that three games are leaving the platform on July 15: Exo One, Spelunky 2, and Paw Patrol The Movie: Adventure City Calls. Make sure to dive into those this month before they’re gone.
