Hades, Lumines Remastered, and MS Solitaire join Xbox Game Pass in August
The world started going crazy the moment Microsoft put ads in Solitaire with the launch of Windows 10. There is a premium edition that removes the ads, but you have to pay $ 1.50 per month for this privilege. Or, if you have an Xbox Game Pass for PC membership, you can play it ad-free on August 17.
It’s actually a pretty decent month for Xbox Game Pass on PC, considering the lack of top-tier heavy hitters. On August 5, PC gets Curse of the Dead Gods, Dodgeball Academia, Lumines Remastered, and Starmancer.
Two of these games will launch on the subscription service on their release date. Starmancer is a space station simulation with a sinister pixel art vibe, while Dodgeball Academia is a 3v3 sports affair with cartoon graphics and frenetic real-time combat. They both look pretty cool.
The next week is even better: Art of Rally arrives on August 12, Hades on August 13, and the aforementioned Solitaire Premium Edition arrives on August 17.
The list of Xbox Game Pass games for PC continues to be impressive, but a handful of games will also be leaving the service this month: Grand Theft Auto 5 will be released on August 8, while August 15 will see the removal of Ape Out, Crossing Souls, Darksiders Genesis, Don’t Starve, Final Fantasy VII and Train Sim World 2020.
