Starting on August 1, three games will be added to Xbox Game Pass including Downwell, Pandemic, and Ashes Cricket. A week later, two more games will be added in the form of Space Hulk Tactics and the Jackbox Party Pack 2. Finally, the last game will hit Xbox Game Pass on August 14 and is the incredible indie gem Slay the Spire. Below, we’ve listed all games and their release dates on Xbox Game Pass.

  • Downwell - August 1
  • Pandemic - August 1
  • Ashes Cricket - August 1
  • Space Hulk Tactics - August 8
  • Jackbox Party Pack 2 - August 8
  • Slay the Spire - August 14

With the incorporation of Xbox Game Pass on PC as well as Xbox One, certain games will be available on both. During the month of August, both Space Hulk Tactics and Downwell will be available for PC users. Out of the games added, we highly recommend Downwell and Slay the Spire, although the Jackbox Party Pack 2 is great if you’re looking for a fun game to play with your friends.
