Humankind – PC


Humankind is actually available on Xbox Game Pass PC starting today, August 17th. The game has just released and is very much a win for the PC subscribers of the service.

Need for Speed Heat – Cloud

This is another addition to the service from the infamous Need for Speed series. A thrilling racing experience that will pit players against rogue police officers and the street racing elites.

Star Wars Battlefront II and Star Wards Jedi: Fallen Order – Cloud


Here subscribers will have two very distinct star wars entries to choose from. Battlefront II is mostly known for its incredibly detailed multiplayer experience, with multiple modes to keep players entertained, as well as an impressive campaign mode with a story you won’t want to miss.

Fall Order on the other hand only focuses on the campaign mode, and it gets it right. Play as a Padawan who must complete his Jedi training and develop new Force abilities, all while trying to escape the Empire and staying one step ahead of them.

Both games are available Today.
