Every month, Xbox brings new games to its Xbox Game Pass subscription service.

  • Sea of Stars (Cloud, Console and PC) — August 29th
  • Gris (Cloud, Console and PC) — September 5th

To play Starfield up to 5 days early starting September 1st, you can also purchase the Starfield Premium Upgrade, on which you’ll save up to 10 percent with Game Pass.

Here’s what’s leaving Game Pass on August 31st:
