Xbox is adding six critically acclaimed new free games for Game Pass subscribers.
Xbox users have six incredible titles to look forward to in August – one of my personal favourites among them!
Xbox Game Pass is currently one of the greatest advantages Xbox has going for it, providing access to an expansive library of exclusive and indie titles as well as all new Xbox releases – for just a monthly fee, giving users access to such gems as Starfield in September (at full speed! ) before giving it up and switching off – simply brilliant!
Xbox has just revealed which new titles will be joining Game Pass during the first half of August and there are some real gems among them – Celeste is my go-to action-platformer recommendation and can’t recommend enough!
Celeste is one of the finest games you’ll ever experience; brutally challenging but rich with emotion and comedy alike. If you can meet its challenging demands successfully, your life will all the better for it!
Celeste will be joined throughout October by A Short Hike, Broforce Forever, Limbo, Airborne Kingdom and Everspace 2.
That is an outstanding list, and I encourage anyone who hasn’t played A Short Hike or Limbo yet to experience both games for themselves. These unique titles may differ greatly, yet both deliver engaging yet mind-stirring experiences which will surely leave an impactful legacy in their wake.
As I have not played any of the other three titles yet, I cannot comment on them, but Broforce Foever stands out to me as something truly different and unpredictable in an enjoyable manner.
Now – Celeste (cloud, console and PC) 3 August: A Short Hike (cloud console PC). 8 August – Broforce Forever (Cloud Console and PC). 9 August – Limbo
10 August: Airborne Kingdom for console, cloud and PC
15 August – Everspace 2 (cloud and Xbox Series X|S)
When looking for games to help alleviate anxiety through challenging platforming, Celeste stands out. Meanwhile, A Short Hike does much the same but with more relaxing exploration features and fishing mini games than Celeste does.
