Neon White is an S-tier FPS game, and now is the perfect time to try it out

It’s a great time to be a Game Pass subscriber, as two great games are hitting the service today. Along with Tchia’s charming open-world adventure, there’s one I’m particularly looking forward to, Neon whiteThis slick anime FPS is a must-play for speedrunning fans, and its addition to Game Pass means you have no excuse not to check it out if you have a subscription.

One of the best FPS games of 2022, Neon White still feels like a breath of fresh air. With satisfying parkour movement, a card-based combat system, great visuals, and a glorious electronic soundtrack, it combines many desirable elements and nails them all.

For those unfamiliar with the premise, you’re essentially a hell-bound spirit battling in a gauntlet from God who gives you one last chance to reach heaven. Progression through that gauntlet is essentially achieved by speedrunning through levels as quickly as possible without leaving any enemies standing, so your aim and strategy will need to be as good as your parkour skills.

Neon White has been on PC for over two years now, but its introduction to Game Pass makes now the perfect time to revisit it or play it for the first time. It’s no exaggeration to say that it’s one of the best PC games for anyone who loves speedrunning.

When looking at the rest of the upcoming Game Pass games lineup for July, Neon White definitely stands out as the best new addition. But as mentioned, it’s not the only excellent game PC subscribers can enjoy starting today – although its counterpart is a bit of a tonal shift.

Tchia has also appeared on Game Pass, a little over a year after launch. This heartwarming open-world game, set in the Pacific Islands of New Caledonia, gives you the ability to ‘soul jump’ into animals to help solve puzzles and traverse. Neon White is, by design, a game to rush through, but Tchia is absolutely one to relax and take your time with.
