Hitman, Dead Rising 2 headline August's Xbox Game Pass additions

All Ryse.

Microsoft has detailed the games headed to its £7.99-a-month Xbox Game Pass in August - including Hitman's complete first season.

Pretty but lightweight Roman hack-and-slasher Ryse will also join the subscription, as will Capcom's zombie classic Dead Rising 2.

Speaking of zombies, The Escapists: The Walking Dead is also included, as is family game Rush: A Disney Pixar Adventure, Metroidvania indie Dandara and top-down cyberpunk shooter Ruiner.

July's Xbox Game Pass additions included Fallout 3, Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion and Warhammer: Vermintide 2, with Rocket League coming as a surprise addition a couple of weeks later.

All of these join Xbox Game Pass stalwarts like Sea of Thieves, which just received its big Cursed Sails update, and more than 200 other Xbox One and Xbox 360 games.
