It feels like every time I talk about some Xbox Game Pass news, I keep mentioning its value for making you discover tons of great games and Microsoft first-party titles for the subscription price. Well shocking news, but I’m doing it again. This time though, it’s introducing some new games coming to Xbox Game Pass in August. Playing Hades on Xbox Game Pass is news enough for you to be checking your wallets if you hadn’t already bought the game or weren’t an Xbox Game Pass subscriber, but the additions of Psychonauts 2, Skate, and Curse of the Dead Gods should sweeten that news drop.
Hades is a fantastic game – you probably knew that already. But Hades on Xbox Game Pass will allow a lot more people to try it out. It’s joined by a few games, some of which will be launching on Xbox Game Pass. Twelve Minutes surprised us when it debuted at E3 in 2019, and it will launch on Xbox Game Pass on August 17. Psychonauts 2 by the minds at Double Fine, after a long long time on the development table, will finally see the light of day when it comes to Xbox Game Pass on day one. And that’s not half of it.
Because there are so many games coming this month, I’ve made a handy list:
A lot of games are coming to Xbox Game Pass on August 5:
- Curse of the Dead Gods (xCloud, Console, and PC)
- Skate (Console)
- Skate 3 (xCloud)
