Xbox Game Pass: August Games List

August in the Game Pass library is bustling! In Xbox’s current games list there are plenty of AAA and indie titles from every genre. As always the games you have available in your Xbox Game Pass will depend on your subscription type, so you’ll only be able to access the EA Play titles if you have the Ultimate Game Pass subscription.

Here’s an extensive list of the titles available with the Game Pass as of August 2021, but bear in mind that Xbox does add and remove games at short notice so keep an eye out for our next updated list:
