Xbox Game Pass: Newly fresh games to be added in the second half of August

Microsoft/Xbox’s Netflix-like game service Game Pass gives you access to more than 100 games at great prices, and the offerings are constantly changing: not monthly, but every half-month. Not so long ago, we announced that 5 more games would be available as part of this, and soon there will be another batch, and even 4 titles, have already arrived for PC and as part of Xbox Cloud Gaming. Let’s see what they are and what we can expect for the rest of the month!

Available from Game Pass, EA Players Need for Speed Heat, Star Wars: Battlefront 2, and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order have now been available to play via the cloud. In the same way, on 17 August, the hardline historical strategy game Humankind was introduced on PC, following in the footsteps of Civilization, featuring 60 different cultures and allowing us to create our own nation as we move from antiquity modern times.

Later in August, Game Pass will be introduced to Game Pass on all platforms (Cloud, PC, Xboxes) in Part 2 of Psychonauts, the highly creative time loop adventure game Twelve Minutes, starring superstars such as Daisy Ridley, James McAvoy and Willem Dafoe, as well as a revamped version of the excellent adventure game Myst.
