In case you missed it, seven new games are coming to Xbox Game Pass before the month is out.
Yesterday’s Inside Xbox broadcast detailed a bunch of new games coming to Microsoft’s PC and Xbox game subscription service during the remainder of August.
Already available is iconic RTS, Age of Empires: Definitive Edition. What makes it definitive? Well, 4K visuals, eight-person multiplayer, a remastered soundtrack, and host of other improvements. The second game is getting the same treatment in November.
Other titles available now on Xbox Game Pass include the acclaimed return of Dante and Nero in Devil May Cry 5, and sci-fi strategy game, Stellaris. Coming later this week is Gabe Cuzzillo’s excellent angry simian simulator, Ape Out.
The month ends with up with two new releases. Bard’s Tale IV: Director’s Cut from inXile Entertainment is available day and date with its full release, as is Bloober Team’s intriguing take on Blair Witch.
Here is the full lineup of new Xbox Game Pass additions. Each one is also available as part of the service’s Ultimate tier.
