We're already five days into August, and from tomorrow, we'll have no less than six new games to look forward to on Xbox Game Pass, before a seventh (fittingly, it's Final Fantasy VII) joins the game streaming service the following week. Games galore! And a nice, varied selection at that. The bad news is, five games are also set to depart soon.

Tomorrow will see co-op dungeon-crawling spin-off Darksiders: Genesis hitting Xbox Game Pass, teaming up brothers Strife and Wrath, as they embark upon an adventure set prior to the events of the first Darksiders. That's joined by 2D, randomly-generated action and survival RPG It Lurks Below, shlocky horror game The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan (ahead of next chapter, Little Hope), and physics-based action game Trailmakers.

In Trailmakers, you can build almost anything (from hovercrafts to hypercars) out of blocks, as you explore an alien planet alone or with friends. Roguelike action-adventure UnderMine will also arrive on 6th August, offering RPG progression and plenty of dungeon crawling; then Xeno Crisis rounds things out with some 16-bit pixel art run-and-gun shootery, featuring seven levels and an arsenal of ten different weapons to master.

From 13th August, you'll then be able to make your way to Midgar in Final Fantasy VII, the 1997 RPG classic starring mercenary Cloud Strife and a band of plucky eco warriors known as Avalanche. F1 2019 was also recently added to Xbox Game Pass earlier this week, while No Man's Sky received the new Desolation update. There's also been an update to the Xbox Game Pass mobile app and there are new XGP Ultimate Perks and Quests to check out.

Take a look at the latest upcoming Xbox Game Pass additions below, including five games set to leave on 14th August, including Devil May Cry 5, Kingdom Come: Deliverance, and Yoku's Island Express. You can nab each of them for 20% off if you want to carry on playing.
