Microsoft has now announced all of the new games that you can play on Xbox Game Pass in August 2018. Its arrival should help allow those who haven't played IO Interactive's highly-acclaimed stealth game to catch up before the launch of Hitman 2 in November.

New Xbox Game Pass Games for the month of August include Hitman Season 1, Ruiner, Ryse: Son of Rome, and more.

The new interface layout has been in testing with Xbox Insiders since June and was met with "overwhelmingly positive feedback" so Microsoft is rolling it out quickly worldwide.

Rounding out the list, Capcom's Dead Rising 2, The Escapists: The Walking Dead, and Dandara have also hopped aboard.

Microsoft has just launched a separate Twitter account for its Xbox Game Pass subscription service and to get people to follow it, they've produced a rather insane little video ad.

The service already has more than 100 titles and we can expect more games in the future as well. The new menu highlights popular and new Game Pass games, spotlights ones with DLC, and has recommendations based on your other downloaded games.
