During the latest Inside Xbox, seven new titles were announced for Game Pass. All seven will be available via Xbox Game Pass Ultimate with six available via Xbox Game Pass and one available via the PC version of Xbox Game Pass.
If you only use Game Pass on Xbox One, you’ll be able to play Devil May Cry 5 and Stellaris starting today with Ape Out, Kingdom Come: Deliverance, Bard’s Tale IV: Directors’ Cut, and Blair Witch coming later in the month. Blair Witch will be available August 30, as it’s already been announced that the game will be coming to Game Pass on day one. On the PC version of Game Pass, Age of Empires: Definitive Edition is available starting today.
Of the games being added to Game Pass, both Devil May Cry 5 and Blair Witch are the two notable standouts. Devil May Cry 5 is one of our most highly rated action games of the year, while Blair Witch caught our attention at E3 2019 with its surprise announcement and spooky-looking, Outlast-like gameplay.
In GameSpot’s Devil May Cry 5 review, Matt Espineli wrote, “DMC5 thrives on the stylistic and mechanical prowess of its predecessors. It sticks to tradition above all else, pursuing a few ambitious new ideas along the way, but mostly maintaining the series’ focus on intricate fighting systems and campy bravado. Rarely does the game stumble, consistently leveraging its spectacle and mechanical depth to push aside any small frustrations. All the while, the story exudes a charismatic charm that keeps you constantly intrigued as you’re refining your skills. DMC5 proves the series can still be brilliant and imaginative without compromising its longest-held traditions.”
