Sea of Stars and The Texas Chain Saw Massacre Lead August’s Wave 2 Game Pass Lineup

Over the coming days, Game Pass subscribers will also get access to acclaimed indie titles Firewatch and Gris.

Microsoft has revealed the next batch of games that will be added to the Game Pass catalog over the coming days throughout the remainder of the month, and there’s a few heavy-hitters for subscribers to look forward to, after already having seen the likes of Celeste and A Short Hike being added to the service’s library earlier in the month.

For starters, today, Everspace 2 has launched for Xbox Series X/S, and the open world spaceflight action RPG is also available via Game Pass on cloud and console. August 17 will bring Campo Santo’s acclaimed first person adventure title Firewatch for subscribers on console, cloud, and PC, while the day after that, August 18, will also see the launch of asymmetrical horror title The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.

Another major day one release for Game Pass will arrive at the tail end of the month with Sabotage Studio’s highly-anticipated retro RPG Sea of Stars. Meanwhile, September 5 will see Nomada Studio’s adventure platformer Gris added to the service’s catalog.

Of course, on September 1, Game Pass subscribers will also be able to dive into the vast expanses of Starfield, provided you’ve bought the Premium Edition (which you can a 10% discount on if you’re a subscriber). For everyone else, the game launches on September 6.
