The bountiful offerings Xbox Game Pass provides got a little more hefty with some true heavy hitters. Among a new haul of titles available for download for subscribers is Devil May Cry 5, a praised title that launched earlier this year.

During Gamescom today, Microsoft announced several new titles coming to Xbox Games Pass today and in the future. Other than Devil May Cry 5 - which is available for download as of today on Xbox One - we have Age of Empires: Definitive Edition and Stellaris. Age of Empires: Definitive Edition is an HD remaster of the first game in the established RTS series. This title is only available to download on PC if you have Xbox Game Pass. Stellaris is a sci-fi grand strategy title, which subscribers can download for the console but not PC.

 

On August 22nd, two other titles are up for grabs for subscribers, which are available on both the console and PC. Ape Out is a top-down action title with a jazzy soundtrack that adapts to how you play. Kingdom Come: Deliverance is a historical medieval RPG set in Bohemia.

On August 27th, Bard's Tale IV: Director's Cut is downloadable on console and PC. This coincides with its release on all other platforms. This is a party-based dungeon crawler by inXile Entertainment, a company recently acquired by Microsoft.

 

The last addition is Blair Witch, launching on August 30th, 2019. This is up for Xbox Game Pass subscribers as well and is based on the eponymous found footage movie The Blair Witch Project from 1999.

 

Quick Take

Wow, what a great offering we have here. I'm glad I didn't pick up Devil May Cry V yet, as I was planning too but certainly didn't expect it to come to the Xbox Games Pass. This is definitely the highlight of these new inclusions, but I wouldn't sleep on Blair Witch either. I have no clue what to think about that game, but it's coming out soon and I'm already a subscriber, so there's no harm in trying it.
