Xbox Game Pass Aug 3

During their recent Gamescom presentation, Xbox announced that Humble Games will be bringing 10 brand new indie titles to Xbox Game Pass on Day One. 

It might not be the usual time of the month for more news about Xbox Game Pass, but we’re certainly not complaining, as 10 brand new indie games coming to Xbox’s already stellar games subscription service is always good news. 

Each of these games is coming to us from publisher Humble Games, the same people behind the Humble Bundles, and each and every one of them is available not just on Xbox and PC, but also via the Cloud too.
