Xbox Game Pass Games For August Announced, Including Huge Titles

It’s a new month, and you know what that means. Not only are we two thirds of the way through the year (help?) but it’s time for more "free" games. The perfect way to drown out the never-ending, fast-moving passage of time!


Over on Xbox Wire, Microsoft have officially announced this month’s additions to Xbox Game Pass, and there’s some really nice ones, including a couple of exciting day-one releases which are coming soon. Strap yourselves in, we’ve got some games to get through.

Spoiler alert for one of this month's Game Pass additions - take a look at Two Point Campus in action below.



Available right now on PC, console and cloud is Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, a third-person shooter set in a huge (and dangerous) open world. Given that Ubisoft recently cancelled an upcoming Ghost Recon game, the timing of this one is pretty funny - there’s little doubt that Wildlands is quite a bit better than whatever Ghost Recon Frontline was shaping up to be, anyway. 

On Thursday (4 August), puzzle game Shenzhen I/O will be coming to PC, and the arcade-style multiplayer racing game, Turbo Golf Racing will be available as a day-one release on cloud, PC, and Xbox Series X/S specifically (sorry, Xbox One users). This one basically looks like Rocket League, but with massive golf balls, which you can’t really go wrong with.

Next up, on 9 August, and also as a day-one release, is Two Point Campus. GAMINGbible’s own Phil Boon previously previewed this management sim, and described it as “cheery”, and said that it was “shaping up well”. If you fancy building your own university, there’s not long to wait - it’ll be available on cloud, console, and PC.


Finally, on 11 August, we’ve got Cooking Simulator (that one’s self explanatory, right?) coming to cloud, console and PC, as well as the turn-based RPG Expeditions: Rome and real time strategy game Offworld Trading Company arriving on PC. 

So, lots of good stuff! On 15 August, Boyfriend Dungeon, Curse of the Dead Gods, Library of Ruina, Starmancer, and Train Sim World 2 will be leaving Game Pass, so be sure to make the most of those while you have the chance.
