New Games Added On The Xbox Game Pass

Like always, Xbox has released a few more games for Game Pass holders this July, and we’ll be listing the best of them below. We hope you enjoy this list of the newest games released on the Xbox Game Pass. 

Xbox’s Game Pass already has quite an impressive number of games, and the newest additions include the entire Yakusa series, Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs 2, and As Dusk Falls, for which we covered a spoiler-free review

The Yakuza Series 

Released on the Xbox Game Pass on July 5, 2022.

Many wonder, out of the eight installments of the Yakuza series, which is the right one to begin with. As we all did, Yakuza Kiwami is a good place to start the story that follows Kazuma Kiryu, who returns to society after spending ten long years in prison for a murder he did not commit. 

Ten years ago, his clan’s boss, Sohei Dojima, attempted to violate Kazuma’s childhood friend, Yumi, but in taking revenge, Sohei Dojima gets murdered by Kazuma’s best friend, Akira Nishikiyama. However, Kazuma takes the blame and is sentenced to 10 years in prison. 

We learn the friends grow apart with a trail of dead bodies piling up behind them. The game doesn’t shy away from cut-scenes. We won’t be shocked if you find the game more like an action movie! 

Watch Dogs 2

Released on the Xbox Game Pass on July 19, 2022.

Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs 2 is a game everybody must try. Hack into cameras, people’s phones, and even traffic lights to outrun the police in an open-world that reflects San Francisco, which also features the Golden Gate Bridge and many more landmarks. 

The story follows Marcus Holloway, a hacker who was punished for a crime by CTOS 2.0 (The Central Operating System) for a crime he did not commit. He soon joined DedSec, a group of hackers that hatch a plan to infiltrate Blume’s server farm to remove all of Marcus’s criminal records. 

Even if you don’t own the Game Pass, gamers who want to play the game can install Ubisoft’s application and install the game for free! 

As Dusk Falls

Released on the Xbox Game Pass on July 19, 2022.

Developed by INTERIOR/NIGHT, As Dusk Falls is an interactive drama that’ll keep you on the edge of your seat, with an amazing cast of voice actors and an even better story, that unravels mysteries you simply won’t expect. 

The story follows two families: the Walkers, who are relocating to St. Louis, Missouri, and the Holts, who are on their way to break into the town’s sheriff’s house to steal some money. The families had a minor accident on a long stretch of road that caused the Walkers to stay the night in a nearby motel. After the Holts raid the sheriff’s house, they rush to escape but are chased into the motel. 

Things only get crazier from there, with guns, lies, and hidden family feuds determining whether you survive the night or if someone dies. Unlike Netflix interactive films, you’ll be required to make many more choices that affect the ending of the game. 

The Xbox Game Pass has also dropped some indie titles that are more than worth mentioning!

Escape Academy

This title is brand new, having debuted on July 13, 2022. Play as a new student at the prestigious Escape Academy, working your way through uniquely-crafted escape rooms to ultimately become the Ultimate Escape Room Master!

Playdead’s Inside

Inside is a 2016 puzzle-platform adventure game that takes you on a horrifying journey made of nightmarish scenes. You play as a young boy, a silhouetted figure, that will have to work his way to the ‘end’, encountering various hurdles and challenges.

Road 96

Experience the road trip of a lifetime in this 2021 indie adventure game. Road 96 gives players beautiful graphics paired with a breath-taking story of freedom and escape, where you play as a group of teenagers fleeing a fictional nation named Petria. The title of the game is also the name of the exit route you must travel in order to escape.
