Devil May Cry 5 headlines more Game Pass additions in August

Microsoft has announced another batch of titles that will be joining the Game Pass before the month is over, and the headline act is an absolute humdinger.

Starting today, Devil May Cry 5 will be available to play for Xbox Game Pass subscribers on console. Released back in March of this year, Devil May Cry 5 received very strong reviews all round and is an absolute must-play for fans of hack and slash. If you’re more of a strategist than a button masher then Paradox Interactive’s space-based management sim Stellaris, which had its console release back in February, is also available on Game Pass for console as of today. If you subscribe to Game Pass for PC and you’re desperate for a new addition today then fear not, you also have a new strategy game to sink your teeth into in the form of Age of Empires: Definitive Edition.

Next up will be the top-down rhythmic ape escape game, Ape Out, which will become available to both Game Pass for console and Game Pass for PC subscribers on Thursday 22nd August, and that will be joined by action-RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance, which received fairly mixed reviews when it launched in the early part of last year.

Rounding out August’s additions will be The Bards Tale 4, which will launch straight on to both Game Pass for console and Game Pass for PC on Tuesday 27th August, and then three days later story-driver psychological horror game Blair Witch, which was first announced during the Xbox E3 conference back in June, will also launch straight on to both Game Pass for console and Game Pass for PC on Friday 30th August.

Don’t forget that you can subscribe to the Xbox Game Pass for console for £7.99 a month, or you can currently subscribe for your first month of the Xbox Game Pass for PC for just £1, or you can grab three months for £3.99. Additionally, you can also get your first month of Game Pass Ultimatewhich gives you both Game Pass for console and Game Pass for PC as well as an Xbox Live Gold Subscriptionfor £1, or you can sign up for two months for £2.
