Xbox has announced the games coming to Xbox Game Pass for the first few weeks of August, which include a bunch of Codemasters racers via EA Play.
Kicking things off on August 5 is a drop of four games for Cloud, Console and PC. Curse of the Dead Gods, Dodgeball Academia, Katamari Damacy Reroll and Lumines Remastered will all be available to subscribers. The same day will also see the first and third entries in EA’s Skate series arrive via EA Play on the console and in the cloud, respectively for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers. Finally for the day, management sim Starmancer will be available via Early Access on the service for PC.
August 12 will bring Art of Rally to Cloud, Console and PC and then a day later the rogue-like sensation Hades finally arrives on Xbox. Once again, you’ll be able to play that on Cloud, Console and PC. Finally, August 17 will see the premium, ad-free version of Microsoft Solitaire Collection: Premium Edition on PC.
Those aren’t the only additions mind, as on August 10 EA will be throwing on a whopping five Codemasters racing titles onto EA Play now that the UK studio are part of the EA team. This means EA Play and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers on console will also get to enjoy Dirt 4, Dirt Rally, Dirt Rally 2.0, F1 2020 and Grid for no extra cost.
Titles leaving this month include, once again, Grand Theft Auto V which departs Cloud and Console on August 8. This will then be followed on August 15 by Ape Out and Crossing Souls on PC. Meanwhile, Darksiders Genesis, Don’t Starve and Train Sim World 2020 leave Cloud, Console and PC and Final Fantasy VII departs Console and PC on the same day. There’s probably a joke there with the lack of Cloud in that last one, but we digress.
