Game news Xbox Game Pass August 2022: Discover 7 “Free” Games Joining the Program with Ghost Recon!
Published on 08.02.2022 at 17:36
Xbox today released a list of games that will join the Xbox Game Pass catalog by mid-August. Players will have access to at least 7 games, with the triple A, as well as independent games.
Ghost Recon Wildlands (Available)
Developed by Ubisoft and published in March 2017, Ghost Recon Wildlands changes the license formula by offering a huge open world to explore alone, but especially with others. Players take on the role of Ghost, a member of the US Special Forces, and must confront the Santa Blanca Cartel in order to save Bolivia from collapse. Lots of weapons, lots of vehicles, varied environments, all sorts of tactical options, and a very mature story – the title seduced despite its solo redundancy, déjà vu feel, and lack of an all-out cinematic setting.
Shenzhen, IO (PC) – August 4
SHENZHEN I/O, developed by Zachtronics Industries and released in 2016, is a simulation-oriented puzzle game in which players must create circuit boards using multiple electronic components. Inspired by real engineering, the game takes us to the electronics capital of the world, where there will be no shortage of semiconductors in the near future.
Turbo Golf Racing (Cloud Series, PC and Xbox) – August 4
What happens if we mix crazy golf with Rocket League? The answer will be given on August 9th with Turbo Golf Racing, which will integrate the Game Pass as soon as it is released. The arcade-oriented game allows players to drive small cars that drive the ball into the hole. Players must use the right tricks to reach the goal as quickly as possible and return the sub-par card.
Two Point Campus (Cloud, Console, and PC) – August 9th
Designed by the creators of Two Point Hospital, themselves from Bullfrog (Theme Hospital), Muckyfoot or even Lionhead (Fable), Two Point Campus will immerse us in the university world this time around. We have to build a university, attract students and take care of their well-being, develop infrastructure and personalize it, purchase equipment, hire professors and make it the largest university in the world. But Two Point obliges, we’ll be talking about downright wacky courses like saliva gastronomy or chivalry, as well as completely banned activities and content destined to expand significantly in a few months. The return to Game Pass is scheduled for August 9, the day the game is released on various media.
Cooking Simulator (cloud, consoles and PC) – August 11
Take control of a flawless, realistic kitchen full of utensils and equipment designed to prepare great meals. There are more than 80 recipes waiting for players, which can count on a large number of ingredients. Initially released in 2019, the game was received very differently depending on the tastes and habits of the players. Some highlight realistic but frustrating physics, or more freedom left in cooking, while others protest against that same physics and portray a game that forgets to be fun. Either way, Cooking Simulator is coming to Game Pass on August 11, and that’s enough for subscribers to form their own opinions.
Expeditions: Rome (PC) – August 11
The turn-based strategy game Expeditions: Rome puts players in the role of a young citizen whose father was killed by a political adversary. You leave Rome and go on a campaign to create an army and organize an uprising! Generous in content, with an enjoyable story, good sense of detail, and successful combat, the title only fails with its technique, dated, rather repetitive conquest battles, and sometimes painful exploration. In other words, lovers of Roman antiquity and strategy enthusiasts should have a good time playing this game, which, if not perfect, scores good enough to be worth a visit.
Offworld Trading Company (PC) – August 11
Travel to the planet Mars, colonized by humans, where the largest companies are doing everything possible to outdo the competition and make themselves known. All kicks are allowed and we find in Offworld Trading Company a full tutorial, a long campaign, a great soundtrack, a challenge, marked factions and a new vision of real-time strategy. Behind all these qualities, we see Mohawk Games and Soren Johnson, lead designer of Civilization IV.
They leave the catalog on August 15th.
- Boyfriend Dungeon (cloud, console and PC)
- Curse of the Dead Gods (Cloud, Console and PC)
- Ruina Library (cloud, console and PC)
