Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass subscription service is regularly updated with new games, and August 2022 will be no different. Microsoft has now announced the new games coming to Xbox Game Pass in the first half of August 2022, and thanks to previous announcements, Game Pass subscribers also know of two games that are going to be added to the service in the second half of the month as well.
The new Xbox Game Pass games for August 2022 kick off today with yet another Ubisoft game made available for subscribers to check out. Starting today, Xbox Game Pass subscribers are free to play Ghost Recon Wildlands across PC, the cloud, and consoles. Ghost Recon Wildlands is an open world co-op shooter, and while it didn’t reach the same heights as some previous Ghost Recon games in terms of critical reception, it was still popular enough to justify a sequel.
Thursday, August 4 will see the next big update to the Xbox Game Pass lineup. On that day, PC Game Pass subscribers will be able to play Shenzhen I/Oa puzzle game, while those across the PC, cloud, and Xbox Series X will be able to try day one game Turbo Golf Racing. The simplest way to describe Turbo Golf Racing is that it’s like if Rocket League was about golf. Whether it proves to be as popular as Rocket League is yet to be determined.
