Xbox Game Pass loses three of its best games this month, including Hades

Xbox shared the second wave of August Game Pass titles coming this August, but what’s leaving the service is a bit more notable. Game Pass is losing three indie heavy-hitters, including the award-winning Hades.

A pannel of games coming to game pass.

The mid-month additions to Game Pass this August feature many day-one additions such as Midnight Fight Express, Commandos 3, Immortality, and Tinykin. The only AAA game coming this month is Ubisoft’s Immortals Fenyx Rising, with the total lineup spanning eight games across cloud, console, and PC. Here’s the full list of games, what platforms they will be available on, and what date they will come to the service.

  • Coffee Talk (cloud, console, and PC) on August 16
  • Midnight Fight Express (cloud, console, and PC) on August 23
  • Opus: Echo of Starsong – Full Bloom Edition (console and PC) on August 25

With eight new games coming, we will also see 10 titles leaving the service, including some very highly regarded indies. In particular, the service is losing a trio of critical darlings: Hades, Spiritfarer, and What Remains of Edith Finch.

These are all the games set to be removed from Game Pass on August 31. Remember that you can purchase them for a 20% discount before they leave the service to keep them in your library.
