Xbox today revealed the first wave of games coming to Game Pass in August. We get titles like Ghost Recon Wildlands, Cooking Simulator and Offworld Trading Company. The new wave also includes a number of day one releases, including Two Point Campus.
Ghost Recon Wildlands is the first title, which is available today. It will be followed on August 4 by the puzzle game Shenzhen I/O. The rest of the releases (i.e. non-day one) will start on August 11. These are turn-based RPG expeditions: Rome, RTS Offworld Trading Company and Cooking Simulator (which speaks for itself).
The first releases are Turbo Golf Racing and Two Point Campus. The latter is the sequel to the whimsical sim Two Point Hospital. It will be launched on August 9. Turbo Golf Racing is an eight-player racing game where cars push giant balls around, Rocket League style. It will be launched on August 4.
The sacrifice games leaving the service for this wave are Boyfriend Dungeon, Curse of the Dead Gods, Library of Ruina, Starmancer, and Train Sim World 2. They will all be leaving service on August 15. Xbox also recently announced its Games with gold for August. From the first, subscribers can download Calico and Saints Row 2. On August 16, they can claim ScourgeBringer and Monaco: What’s Yours is Mine.
