These 8 games are heading to Xbox Game Pass in August 2022

8. Coffee Talk

August 16 (Cloud/Console/PC)

Developer Toge Productions describes its visual novel Coffee Talk as a “talking simulator.” You play as a barista serving up coffee and affirmation for your regulars, all set to a soothing lo-fi soundtrack.

7. Midnight Fight Express

August 23 (Cloud/Console/PC)

Midnight Fight Express is a brand-new brawler hitting Game Pass on launch day. Written by a Destiny 2 co-writer, it’s an isometric action game with tons of spectacular set pieces.

6. Exapunks

August 25 (PC)

Exapunks is the third Zachtronics game to join Game Pass in recent weeks, following Shenzhen I/O and the studio’s swan song, Last Call BBS. It’s a brain-twisting programming puzzle game about hacking to pay for your life-saving medicine. Fun!

5. Opus: Echo of Starsong — Full Bloom Edition

August 25 (Console/PC)

Opus: Echo of Starsong is probably the best game you missed in 2021. It’s a gorgeous sci-fi visual novel that’s equally relatable and epic.

4. Commandos 3 — HD Remaster

August 25 (Console/PC)

Commandos 3 — HD Remaster updates the nearly 20-year-old real-time strategy game Commandos 3 with improved controls and new gameplay options on top of its 4K makeover.

Eidos Interactive
3. Immortality

August 30 (Cloud/Console/PC)

The latest from Sam Barlow’s Half Mermaid Productions continues the studio’s trend of engrossing investigative games. Like Her Story and Telling Lies, Immortality lets you assemble the truth from a trove of video footage.

2. Immortals Fenyx Rising

August 30 (Cloud/Console/PC)

Confusing name aside, Immortals Fenyx Rising is something like a cutesy crossover of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Breath of the Wild. Its Greek myth-inspired world is lots of fun to explore and combat is satisfying without being too hard.

1. Tinykin

August 30 (Console/PC)

In Tinykin, you’ll need to gather legions of itty bitty followers to help you get home. Like a new take on Pikmin, it challenges you to find inventive ways to work with your mini minions.
