As promised, Microsoft will continue adding to its fledgling Xbox Game Pass service next month with seven new titles for subscribers to download and enjoy to their heart’s content. Announced earlier this year, the subscription-based program requires that subscribers drop $10 a month for unlimited access to any and all games currently housed in its library. That number began at around 100 when service officially began back in June but will continue to grow – and thus add more value for the same price – as time goes on.
As for the titles being added on August 1, they’re an eclectic bunch, ranging from Capcom’s comical zombie-slaying survival horror Dead Rising 3 to indie dev Playdead’s Limbo. Both are several years old, of course, but if you’ve yet to try your hand at either, now’s the time do so. Dead Rising 4, while a prettier, more outlandish romp through the undead horde, controversially did away with campaign co-op, so if you’re looking for an entry in the series that you can play side by side with another, this isn’t the one for you.
Similarly, if Limbo strikes a chord, like it has for so many others, with you, why not follow it up with Playdead’s similarly brilliant Inside? You won’t regret it.
In regards to the rest of August’s additions, see the full list below.
- Dead Rising 3 (Xbox One)
- Dirt Rally(Xbox One)
- Limbo(Xbox One)
- Metal Slug XX (Xbox One)
- Pharaonic (Xbox One)
- So Many Me (Xbox One)
- Ultratron (Xbox One)
If none of those take your fancy, Microsoft announced just the other day the games being given away for nothing with August’s Games With Gold service. Trials Fusion, Bayonetta and more are on the menu this time around and you can see here for all the details.
