Microsoft’s subscription service is about to add new titles as part of the Xbox Game Pass August 2022 lineup. Here’s all we know so far.

Microsoft’s monthly subscription service, Xbox Game Pass, keeps going from strength to strength, with July’s lineup saw the addition of everything from Peppa Pig and Paw Patrol, to the return of the Yakuza franchise and the wildly popular PowerWash Simulator. There were also big day one launches like As Dusk Falls, which we awarded an 8.5 out of 10 in our review.

Games Leaving Game Pass in August 2022

Microsoft’s service rotates games in and out of its library, so expect a few games to be removed in August — usually with some leaving halfway through the month and some leaving at the end.

You’ll be given at least a few days’ notice, though, so you can either finish up the game before it leaves or buy it at a discount before it’s gone.
