Xbox Game Pass: Saying Farewell and Welcoming the New

A new month means new games on Xbox Game Pass, but it also means bidding farewell to a few titles that will be leaving the service. Don’t worry though, you can still keep these games in your library with up to 20% off using your membership discount. Let’s take a look at the games leaving Game Pass on August 15, but first, grab your tissues!

Saying Goodbye to Some Gems

First up, we have Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding. This post-apocalyptic courier game made waves when it arrived on Game Pass for PC back in August 2022. With ultrawide screen support, photo mode, and a high frame rate, Death Stranding truly delivered. Sadly, it’s time to bid farewell to this masterpiece, as it will no longer be available on Game Pass. Don’t worry, though – you can always grab a box of tissues and purchase it for keepsies.

Next on our goodbye list is Midnight Fight Express, a two-fisted brawler that had us throwing punches and breaking bones. This game provided adrenaline-pumping action, but alas, its time on Game Pass is coming to an end. Grab your virtual boxing gloves, give it one final knockout, and then consider adding it to your personal collection.

Moving on, we have Edge of Eternity, an artistic RPG that took us on a journey through breathtaking landscapes and immersive storytelling. Sadly, the time has come for us to say goodbye to this epic adventure. But fear not, dear gamers, for the memories we made in Edge of Eternity will last forever… or until we buy it beyond Game Pass.

Last but not least, we have Total War: Warhammer III, a strategic masterpiece that had us battling for control of the Warhammer fantasy world. Whether you were commanding legions of troops or casting powerful spells, this game provided endless hours of strategic bliss. Unfortunately, it’s time to say goodbye to this war-torn world, but remember, the war within us will never end (or until we purchase the game).

Welcome to the New Additions!

While we’re bidding farewell to some incredible games, there’s always something exciting to look forward to on Xbox Game Pass. This month, say hello to the excellent platformer Celeste, which is available right now. Prepare for heart-pounding challenges and a story that will tug at your heartstrings. But that’s not all! We have more games joining the party, such as A Short Hike, Everspace 2, and many more. So, buckle up and get ready for an exhilarating gaming experience!

Xbox Game Pass Core: The Affordable Powerhouse

Before we go, let’s touch on the latest addition to the Xbox Game Pass family – Xbox Game Pass Core! This more affordable service will replace Xbox Live Gold in September, offering a collection of 25+ games on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One for just $10/month or $60/year. Get your gaming fix without breaking the bank!

Final Thoughts

As the month changes, so does the game lineup on Xbox Game Pass. While we bid farewell to some incredible titles, we also welcome new adventures into our gaming lives. So, keep your spirits high, embrace the new additions, and let the games continue to bring joy and excitement to your gaming journey.
