Xbox Game Pass August additions includes Darksiders Genesis and Final Fantasy VII

Microsoft has confirmed the additions for Xbox Game Pass this month, and there is quite a variety. Starting off the line up for console only additions are Darksiders Genesis, and that is joined by The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan. The rest of the games will be available on both PC and Xbox One. Those games are It Lurks Below, Xenocrisis, Trailmakers, Undermine, and Final Fantasy VII HD. The majority of the games are available today. Final Fantasy VII HD will be added to the service on August 11th.

  • Devil May Cry 5 (Console)
  • Kingdom Come: Deliverance (Console & PC)
  • Space Hulk: Tactics (PC)
  • Where the Water Tastes Like Wine (PC)
  • Yoku’s Island Express (Console & PC)

In our review for Darksiders Genesis, Dom wrote:

“Despite the fundamental changes to the series’ viewpoint, Darksiders Genesis feels like a true Darksiders game, and banishes any memory of the lacklustre third entry.”

In our review for Man of Medan, Tuffcub wrote:

“Mad of Medan looks and sounds gorgeous, but it’s spoiled by some technical issues and, depending on your choices, characters doing stupid things just so the plot can continue, both of which break the flow of what could have been a decent horror story. It’s an excellent night or two’s entertainment with a bunch of mates in a dark room and plenty of beer, though playing by yourself or online with a chum is an altogether more muted experience. This is a fair start to The Dark Pictures Anthology.”
We do not have reviews for the other games, so we can’t help you with those.
