Game Pass in August 2022: here are the new games – Immortals Fenyx Rising is in the game
It’s new Game Pass is getting a handful of new games again in August 2022. Later this month, titles will be available to all subscribers* on PC and Xbox consoles. Microsoft criticizes Sony for keeping games out of Game Pass and negotiations around Call of Duty continue. Open-world hit Immortals Fenyx Rising – Ubisoft’s answer to the wildly popular The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – is also in the game. All upcoming games for Game Pass are listed here along with their date.

What’s great about Immortals Fenyx Rising: In Immortals Fenyx Rising you will be satisfied if you feel like solving puzzles. The entire open world is strewn with challenges, quests and small puzzles that will require intelligence and skill. Combined with the freedom of movement of Breath of the Wild and an interesting (if sometimes a bit ridiculous) story about Greek deities, Immortals Fenyx Rising is a real heart-stopper.
The game earned an OpenCritic rating of nearly 80% and is in the middle of comparable open-world titles. Immortals Fenyx Rising is often criticized for suffering from the “Ubisoft disease” and for being completely stuffed with soulless characters and uninteresting challenges. But it’s hard to see the downside when you have so much to do in the game and you’re always licking your fingers for the next challenge.
Game Pass in August 2022: these titles must go – Zagreus escapes the service

This is why you should still play Hades: Before it leaves Game Pass on August 31, you should give Supergiant Games’ indie title a chance. In spectacular action and with almost limitless possibilities, you move the son of the underworld, Zagreus, to escape the clutches of the god Hades who gave him his name. On your way to the mortal world, you will encounter many traps, enemies, and bosses. But you can also make friends and make your adventure more friendly.
On OpenCritic, Hades earned a 94% rating and was recommended by nearly everyone who reviewed it. It has won many awards and captured the hearts of Rougelike fans. Smooth gameplay, nearly unlimited bonuses, and a rewarding gameplay loop make Hades a true must-play that should rock every gamer’s bedpost*. The free PS Plus games of August 2022 are also waiting for you this month, so you’ll have to hang on to play this avalanche of cutting-edge games.
