Microsoft has just announced the first new games coming to Xbox Game Pass on Xbox One and Windows 10 next month. There will be four new Xbox One games in August starting with Ashes Cricket and Pandemic coming tomorrow, August 1. It will be followed by Jackbox Party Pack 2 on August 8, and Slay the Spire on August 14.
The new Xbox Game Pass for PC service will get two new games in August, starting with Downwell on August 1 and then Space Hulk Tactics on August 8. If you’ve upgraded to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, we remind you that Xbox Game Pass for PC is included for free with your subscription in addition to Xbox Live Gold.
We’ll likely get a second wave of new Xbox Game Pass games later in August, and the Xbox team will likely announce the new additions on August 19 during the special Inside Xbox episode live from gamescom. In the meantime, you can still get your first month of Xbox Game Pass for just $1 for a limited time, and don't forget to also check out the just-announced Games with Gold for August.
