Xbox Game Pass will be adding new titles starting on August 23, including the indie hit Coffee Talk and Ubisoft’s Immortals Fenyx Rising. Some day-one additions are also coming, while some entries will be leaving the service on August 31.
The new lineup includes the 2020 indie hit Coffee Talk. Available on Cloud, console, or PC on August 16, the game takes place in an alternate version of Seattle, home to everything from elves and orcs to mermaids and vampires. Players take on the role of a barista at a coffee shop open only at night and must brew tasty drinks for the many unique customers who come to share their woes. Featuring a unique pixel art style and an original lo-fi soundtrack, the story-heavy game will be getting a sequel in 2023. Check out a trailer below.
Another popular title being added to the service this month is Immortals Fenyx Rising, an action-adventure romp from Ubisoft. Available on Cloud, console, or PC on August 30, the game’s world was instantly compared to that of Breath of the Wild upon its release in October 2020. Players step into the role of Fenyx, a winged demigod tasked with exploring a mythological world where they must embark on a quest to save the Greek gods. The title was praised for its narrative, humor, combat, soundtrack, and open-world design. If you somehow missed it, watch the launch trailer below.
