Game news Xbox Game Pass August 2022: Experience the 7 “free” games participating in the program with Ghost Recon!
Xbox has today released the list of titles that are and will join the Xbox Game Pass catalog in mid-August. No less than 7 games will be available to players, with triple A as well as independent games.
Ghost Recon Wildlands (Available)
Developed by Ubisoft and released in March 2017, Ghost Recon Wildlands transforms the licensing formula and offers a huge open world to walk alone, but especially with others. Players embody a ghost, a member of the US special forces, and must face the Santa Blanca cartel to save Bolivia from collapse. With many weapons, multiple vehicles, varied environments, tactical options of all kinds and a very mature story, the title had seduced despite its solo redundancy, a sense of deja vu and a complete lack of cinematic staging.
Shenzhen IO (PC) – August 4
Designed by Zachtronics Industries and released in 2016, SHENZHEN I/O is a simulation-oriented puzzle game where players must build circuit boards use of several electronic components. Inspired by real engineering, the game takes us to the electronics capital of the world in the near future where shortage of semiconductors does not exist.
Turbo Golf Racing (Cloud, PC & Xbox Series) – August 4
What happens if we mix a crazy game of golf with Rocket League? The answer will be given on August 9 with Turbo Golf Racing, which will integrate Game Pass as soon as it is released. Arcade-oriented, the title puts players on commands from little racing cars responsible for pushing their ball to the hole. It is up to the players to use the right techniques to reach the goal as quickly as possible and to return a card below par.
Two Point Campus (Cloud, Console & PC) – August 9
Developed by the creators of Two Point Hospital, even from Bullfrog (Theme Hospital), Muckyfoot or even Lionhead (Fable), Two Point Campus will immerse us this time in the academic world. We will have to build the university, attract students and take care of their well-being, develop infrastructures and personalize them, buy equipment, recruit professors and make it the biggest university in the world. But Two Point obliges, we want to talk about totally crazy tracks such as spit gastronomy or chivalry, but also completely crazy events and a content that is destined to expand greatly over the months. The return to Game Pass is scheduled for August 9, the day the game is released on the various media.
Cooking Simulator (Cloud, Console & PC) – August 11th
Take control of a spotless, realistic kitchen, filled with utensils and equipment dedicated to making great meals. More than 80 recipes await players, who can count on a large number of ingredients. Originally released in 2019, the title had been received very differently depending on the tastes and habits of the players. Some have emphasized realistic physics but which can be frustrating or the great freedom that remains in the preparation of dishes, while others have raged against the same physics and depict a game that forgets to be fun. In any case, Cooking Simulator arrives on August 11th in Game Pass, enough for subscribers to form their own opinion.
Expeditions: Rome (PC) – August 11
A turn-based strategy game, Expeditions: Rome offers players the role of a young citizen whose father has been murdered by a political opponent. You leave Rome and go on a campaign to create an army and organize the rebellion! Generous in its content, with a pleasant story, a good sense of detail and successful battles, the title fails only in its technique, dated, rather repetitive battles with conquests and sometimes painful exploration. In other words, lovers of Roman antiquity and strategy enthusiasts should feel good about this title, which, if not perfect, collects enough good points to be worth the detour.
Offworld Trading Company (PC) – August 11th
Meet on a planet Mars colonized by humans and where the biggest companies give everything to beat the competition and win. All battles are allowed, and in Offworld Trading Company we find a complete tutorial, a long campaign, an excellent soundtrack, challenge, distinctive factions and a new vision of real-time strategy. Behind all these qualities we find Mohawk Games and Søren Johnsonlead designer of Civilization IV.
