Here Are The New Titles Coming To Xbox Game Pass In August 2021

We’re in for a hell of a good time

I’ve been doing these Game Pass wrap-ups for a while now, but this month is different for me because it’s the first in which I actually own a Series S and can take advantage of the service. It looks like I’ve picked a good month to kick things off too, as there are a number of bangers hitting Game Pass, as announced on Xbox Wire. Enough about me, let’s look at what’s on offer in August.

August 5

  • Curse of the Dead Gods (Console/PC/Cloud)
  • Dodgeball Academia (Console/PC/Cloud)
  • Katamari Damacy Reroll (Console/PC/Cloud)
  • Lumines Remastered (Console/PC/Cloud)
  • Skate (Console)
  • Skate 3 (Cloud)
  • Starmancer (Game Preview)

August 12

  • Art of Rally (Console/PC/Cloud)

August 13

  • Hades (Console/PC/Cloud)

August 17

  • Microsoft Solitaire Collection: Premium Edition (PC)

As always, a number of games will also be leaving the Game Pass service so make sure you get the most out of them while they’re still around. Here are the games leaving Game Pass in August:

August 8

  • GTA V (Console/Cloud)

August 15

  • Ape Out (PC)
  • Crossing Souls (PC)
  • Darksiders Genesis (Console/PC/Cloud)
  • Don’t Starve (Console/PC/Cloud)
  • Final Fantasy VII (Console/PC)
  • Train Sim World 2020 (Console/PC/Cloud)

The heavy-hitter for me this month is definitely Hades, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some other quality titl3es in the mix in August. If you’re a fan of roguelikes you should absolutely give Curse of the Dead Gods some attention (we gave it an 8.5), you won’t regret it.

Which games will you be downloading this month? What other games would you like to see on the service? Let us know in the comments or on our social media.
