New batch of games coming to Xbox Game Pass this month

Spoilt for choice.

Immortals Fenyx Rising

Just two weeks after its latest addition, Microsoft is once again expanding the Xbox Game Pass game list for this month with eight titles available on PC, Xbox and cloud.

While they may not be as exciting as Watch Dogs 2, Assassin’s Creed Origins, or Far Cry 5, the next list features some well-known names like Immortals Fenyx Rising and Commandos 3.

Immortals Fenyx Rising

Coming straight from Ubisoft catalogues, Immortals Fenyx Rising is an action-adventure game influenced by The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, played from a third-person perspective.

Entirely accessible from the get-go, its open world consists of seven distinct regions inspired by Greek gods, filled with various enemies from Greek mythology, such as Minotaurs and Cyclopes.

In this game you play as Fenyx, a winged demigod, whose task is to save the Greek gods. Through your journey you will collect many resources used to unlock upgrades and improve weapons. While its simpler gameplay mechanics may feel nice for some, Assassin’s Creed fans could find them a bit lacking.

Commandos 3 HD Remastered

Commandos 3 – HD Remaster

A remaster of Commandos 3: Destination Berlin, in which you take control of a special forces (commandos) unit during World War II to carry out operations behind enemy lines on various fronts (Stalingrad, Normandy or Berlin).

Set to release on August 30, this makeover of the 20-year-old game brings reworked textures, new 3D models, high-definition graphics, as well as a brand-new user interface. You will have the opportunity to sabotage enemy defences, recover stolen artwork, or eliminate important targets, before leaving the area unnoticed.
