Psychonauts 2, Twelve Minutes, Recompile, More Xbox Game Pass Achievements This Month
The latest set of Xbox Game Pass titles arrived today, and more are on the way.
More games have been added to Xbox Game Pass for the month of August, and while there are many coming today, more will be out until August 26.
Today, Amplitude Studios Humanity comes to PC as a Game Pass Day One title. If you’re keen on trying out what’s called a Civ-killer, be sure to take a look at our review summary as well as Alex’s initial preview first.
Need for quick heat arrived for cloud users through EA Play. If you’re unfamiliar with this entry in the series, you’re going to “rock the day” and “risk it all” at night as you take on a rogue police force. All the while you are also making your way through the elite of street racing. Good luck with that.
Also happens today Star Wars Battlefront 2 for the Cloud via EA Play. Speaking of a galaxy far, far away, another EA Play title – Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order – comes to the Cloud today. You know all about these two games, so we won’t bore you with recaps.
Coming soon to Game Pass on August 19 Recompile for Cloud, Console and PC. Arrived on the service upon exit, the game is a Metroidvania-inspired hacking adventure where you take control of a semi-healthy program that tries not to be removed from existence. While in the Mainframe, you will experience intense combat, 3D platforming, using superpowers, and using hack mechanics based on environmental logic.
Arrive on the service the same day is Train Sim World 2 for Cloud, Console and PC. Here you will drive along the German high speed railway under the name DB ICE 3M from Koeln. You will also be tasked with hauling long freight through Sand Patch Grade using the power of the CSX AC4400CW and trying to subdue the London Underground on the Bakerloo line. All rails have official licenses, all have been authentically recreated. In this game, you are not only in the cabin, but in control.
August 19 is a busy day as it also sees the release of Twelve minutes for Cloud, Console and PC. Another Day One on Game Pass, in this interactive thriller, you play as a man trapped in a time loop. See, you come home for a nice dinner with your wife only to see the police break down the door and charge your wife with murder. To make matters worse, the police also beat you to death. But, instead of dying, you wake up and return to the first moment you walked through the door. Of course, your wife doesn’t know what’s going to happen, but you remember everything. Whenever twelve minutes pass or you die, the loop restarts and takes you straight back to the start of the evening. The other characters return to the state they were in, but each experience will affect you permanently. As your knowledge accumulates, a “twisted and surprising story unfolds”. If that wasn’t interesting enough, the game stars James McAvoy, Daisy Ridley, and Willem Dafoe lending their chops to the characters.
August 25, Psychonauts 2 will finally be released for Cloud, Console and PC. With the game, you can expect unusual missions and “mysterious conspiracies” when playing this platform adventure game. Have fun with customizable psychic powers as you guide Raz on a journey through the minds of friends and foes. His quest? Defeat a murderous psychic villain. Do you want to accelerate? Game Pass members can pre-install today to be ready to play from day one. It’s good.
Myst hits the cloud, console, and PC on August 26. There you will explore a beautiful island full of mystery and surrounded by intrigue. Here you will find deep connections and uncover a story of ‘ruthless family betrayal’.
