Xbox has announced the latest infusion of fresh blood into the Game Pass catalog and things are looking good for the month. The new round of additions includes four Day One releases, as well as the relatively large Ubisoft release Immortals: Fenyx Rising.
The first wave begins with Coffee Talk, a visual novel love story launching on the platform today. Midnight Fight Express, the first Day One release, launches on August 23. It will be followed on August 25 by the puzzle game Exapunks and the adventure game Opus: Echo of Starsong – Full Bloom Edition.
The next batch of titles will all launch on August 30th. These include the Day One releases Commandos 3 – HD Edition, the mystery game Immortality from the creator of Her Story and puzzle platformer Tinykin. The final launch of the day is Immortals: Fenyx Rising.
Unfortunately, a new batch of games means we have to sacrifice others, and Game Pass loses some big names at the end of August. These include Hades, Myst, Elite: Dangerous, NBA 2K22, Signs of the Sojourner, Spiritfarer, Twelve Minutes, Two Point Hospital (right after getting Two Point Campus too), What Remains of Edith Finch, and World War Z.
