Xbox Game Pass is getting a slew of new games in the second half of August, starting today, August 17. The new arrivals include Immortals Fenyx Rising, which is best described as Ubisoft’s version of Zelda. Players assume the role of the titular Fenyx, a winged demigod and embark on a mythological journey in their quest to save the Greek Gods, by solving puzzles and fighting beasts in a sprawling world. Other titles include Midnight Fight Express, launching day one on console, cloud, and PC, alongside a Sea of Thieves DLC. These games and more will be available to all Game Pass subscribers free of cost until they are pulled away months later.
In India, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is available at Rs. 50 for the first month, after which users get charged Rs. 499 every month. The tier-3 plan includes access to hundreds of high-quality games on PC and console, same-day release for Xbox exclusives, special discounts, and free in-game content. The package also includes an Xbox Live Gold subscription, allowing for seamless online multiplayer gaming.
