Xbox Game Pass confirms 6 more games joining the service’s lineup for August 2022, including a previously rumored Ubisoft title.
Xbox Game Pass keeps to a pretty solid pattern of revealing games at the start and middle of the months, with games coming periodically across those two-week periods. Now, with the first half of August 2022 over, Xbox Game Pass has turned its eyes to the second half of the month.
Previously, Xbox Game Pass already had Midnight Fight Express on August 23 and Immortality on August 30 confirmed. The latter also recently received a 10/10 early review, making its addition to Game Pass promising. But alongside these games, 6 more have been confirmed for the service between now and the end of the month.
This includes the surprise addition of Coffee Talk today, August 16, “a coffee brewing and heart-to-heart talk simulator about listening to people’s problems and helping them by serving a warm drink or two.” Following it will be Exapunks, Opus: Echo of Starsong, and the aforementioned Midnight Fight Express on August 25, which is a pretty good variety of games. Exapunks is a programming puzzle game, Opus is a visual novel/adventure game, and the previously confirmed Midnight Fight Express is an isometric brawler.
August 30 will feature the last drop, consisting of Commandos 3 HD, Immortality, Immortals Fenyx Rising, and Tinykin. Commandos 3 HD is an RTS, Immortality is an interactive film, Immortals Fenyx Rising is an adventure RPG in a greek fantasy world, and Tinykin is a 3D Platformer. Immortals Fenyx Rising was previously rumored to be a coming Xbox Game Pass addition, so it’s not surprising.
