Game Pass is getting some very eclectic additions in August

Ashes Cricket, yes!

Xbox Game Pass is set to receive quite the collection of games next month. Coming from practically every genre imaginable, subscribers to Microsoft’s service will have a chance to play Ashes Cricket for free, among others. That’s worth the price of 10 years of subs.

In all honesty, though, I’m a bit confused at what is on offer. The Jackbox Party Pack 2 is excellent and Downwell is an indie classic, but everything else seems so random. I know the point of Game Pass is to introduce gamers to titles they’d likely never experience, but this almost comes off as Microsoft throwing darts blindly at a chart.

However they were chosen, you certainly won’t be hurting for new games to play next month. You can find the full list and dates for each new title below.

August 1

  • Ashes Cricket (Xbox Game Pass for Console, Game Pass Ultimate)
  • Pandemic (Xbox Game Pass for Console, Game Pass Ultimate)
  • Downwell (Game Pass for PC, Game Pass Ultimate)

August 8

August 14

  • Slay the Spire (Xbox Game Pass for Console, Game Pass for PC, Game Pass Ultimate)
