Devil May Cry 5 leads more Xbox and PC Game Pass additions for August

Plus Bard's Tale 4! Blair Witch! More!

Microsoft has fumbled around in its magical bag of Game Pass treats and yanked out a fresh helping of games coming to the Xbox One and PC subscription service this month, including Devil May Cry 5, The Bard's Tale 4, and Blair Witch.

Starting today, the big 'un is Capcom's superb hack-and-slash revival, Devil May Cry 5, which will be available for Game Pass subscribers on Xbox One. Also coming to console via Game Pass today is Paradox's mighty sci-fi grand strategy opus Stellaris, while PC players get their strategy fix in the form of Age of Empires: Definitive Edition.

As for the rest of August, there's jazz-hued primate action from Ape Out, arriving on PC and Xbox One next Thursday, 22nd August, and open-world RPG Kingdom Come: Deliverance is added on the same day.

Devil May Cry 5.

Classic role-playing series The Bard's Tale sees its brand-new fourth instalment joining Xbox and PC Game Pass on 27th August, and this month's offerings are tied up nicely (into a little twiggy bundle) with the addition of Bloober Team's woodland horror Blair Witch on 30th August.

You can find a full list of Xbox Game Pass offerings, if you haven't been keeping up-to-date, over on Eurogamer's comprehensive Game Pass round-up page.
