The classic JRPG is now on Xbox.
The Xbox Game Pass gets yet another month of great games in August 2020, as more awesome games get added into its already massive library. This month, the first wave of games coming to the service includes classics like Final Fantasy VII HD and even newer titles like The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan.
Here are the games for the Xbox Game Pass August 2020 lineup and when the games will start being playable:
Darksiders: Genesis (Xbox Game Pass for Console, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate) – 6 August 2020
An action/adventure game that tears its way through hordes of demons, angels, and everything in-between on its way to Hell and back with guns blazing and swords swinging.
Darksiders Genesis gives players their first look at the world of Darksiders before the events of the original game. Furthermore, it introduces the fourth and last horseman Strife, as well as co-op gameplay for the first time in the franchise.

Xeno Crisis (Xbox Game Pass for Console, Xbox Game Pass for PC and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate) ID@Xbox – 6 August 2020
Run and gun your way through seven distinct areas and master an arsenal of ten different weapons as you take on thousands of varied adversaries in this top-down arena shooter for one or two players.
It will require guile, composure, and good judgement to have a chance of reaching the final showdown. Xeno Crisis is a genuine 16-bit throwback for those who enjoy a challenge, with superb pixel art and a blistering soundtrack.
Final Fantasy VII HD (Xbox Game Pass for Console, Xbox Game Pass for PC and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate) – 13 August 2020
Relive the RPG that redefined gaming. The world has fallen under the dominion of the Shinra Electric Power Company, a sinister corporation that has monopolized the planet’s very life force as Mako energy.
Cloud Strife, a former member of Shinra’s elite Soldier unit, now turned mercenary, lends his aid to the rebels, unaware that he will be drawn into an epic battle for the fate of the planet while having to come to terms with his own lost past.
While this isn’t Final Fantasy VII Remake (that probably won’t be coming to Xbox ever), at least players will be able to play the classic and iconic original JRPG.
Last month, Xbox announced that Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers will be able to enjoy Project xCloud service for free and at no additional cost in select supported countries starting from September 2020, including those in Singapore.
