What would this world be like without video games? Probably a more productive place, although this lack of blowing off some steam in such a fun way could be disastrous.

But, before we go imagining a gaming-related apocalypse, let’s focus on the fact that we can game whenever we want, for how long we want.

We can’t say gaming without mentioning Microsoft’s Xbox consoles, and we can’t talk about these consoles without bringing the Xbox Game Pass subscription into the spotlight.

If you are a monthly subscriber to the above-mentioned service, then you are surely wondering what games are coming to Game Pass for July.

And, as always, we’re here to provide a quick, documented, trustworthy answer anytime you have a tech-related question or query.

Here are the Xbox Game Pass titles for July

The new Xbox Game Pass titles usually get announced on Tuesdays, but the second wave of July has been revealed a bit earlier than expected.

Let’s kick off this list with As Dusk Falls, which is an original interactive drama from Interior/Night that explores the entangled lives of two families across thirty years.

The second game being added is Ashes of the Singularity, a real-time strategy video game developed by Oxide Games and Stardock Entertainment.

Third on the list is the popular Watch Dogs 2, in which you can play as a brilliant young hacker living in the birthplace of the tech revolution, the San Francisco Bay Area.

If you feel you need more speed and adrenaline, Moto GP 22 is also coming, so you can join more than 120 riders, over 20 official circuits, and all the excitement of the official championship.

Torment: Tides of Numenera is the fifth title on this release list, a journey that lets you discover the Ninth World built on the bones of extinct, hyper-advanced civilizations and leave your own mark on it.

We conclude this second wave of July Game Pass additions with Inside, a title that has received critical acclaim for its moody art style, ambient soundtrack, and unsettling atmosphere.

To summarize and specify what support these games will get upon being added, and the exact release date, here’s a simplified list:

  • As Dusk Falls (Cloud, Console, and PC) – July 19
  • Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation (PC) – July 19
  • Watch Dogs 2 (Cloud, Console, and PC) – July 19
  • MotoGP 22 (Cloud, Console, and PC) – July 21
  • Torment: Tides of Numenera (Cloud and Console) – July 21
  • Inside (Cloud, Console, and PC) – July 29

Yes, the picture above, from the Xbox website, shows Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion instead of Ashes of the Singularity, which is actually what’s coming into PC Game Pass.

12 games gain touch control support for Ultimate members

Microsoft made another announcement for Ultimate members, stating that 12 more games are available this month to play with touch controls via Xbox Cloud Gaming.

These include returning fan favorites such as Yakuza and As Dusk Falls on day one, so you can jump in and have a ton of fun with no controller required.

Which ones, you ask? We’re about to show you the complete list:

  • Citizen Sleeper
  • Disc Room
  • Escape Academy
  • Garden Story
  • Little Witch in the Woods (Game Preview)
  • Lost In Random
  • Spacelines from the Far Out
  • Umurangi Generation
  • Yakuza 0
  • Yakuza Kiwami
  • Yakuza Kiwami 2
  • As Dusk Falls – Available July 19

What games are leaving Game Pass?

We also have to mention that there are some titles leaving the service on July 31, among which are Dodgeball Academia, Katamari Damacy Reroll, Omno, Raji, and Lumines Remastered.

Fans of these titles may want to complete their current runs before that date or make use of the membership discount to add them to their library permanently.

So, if you are an Xbox user and an Xbox Game Pass subscriber, there are a lot of fun additions coming to you in this second wave of July 2022.
