Xbox has revealed the list of games coming to Game Pass in the first half of August. Xbox Game Pass subscribers can try seven new games over the next two weeks, including two day one releases and a massive AAA game available now.
leading is Ghost Recon Wildlands, available today for Xbox, PC, and Xbox Cloud Gaming. Ghost Recon Wildlands is a cooperative third-person shooter set in a huge open world. Set in Bolivia, Wildlands focuses on a battle between US special forces and a drug cartel that threatens to dismantle the country.
