Xbox Game Pass loses Final Fantasy VII, Darksiders Genesis, and more soon

By Sean Carey,
Update: Microsoft has now confirmed that these games will leave Xbox Game Pass on August 16th. Grand Theft Auto V will leave on August 8th.

Original Story: The latest batch of titles set to leave Xbox Game Pass soon has been revealed on the Game Pass mobile app. Final Fantasy VII, Darksiders Genesis, Don't Starve: Giant Edition, Train Sim World 2020, Ape Out (Win 10), and Crossing Souls will all drop out of Xbox Game Pass soon. No date has been announced just yet, but we believe these games will leave the service on or around August 15th.

Ape Out (Win 10)

Ape Out

Ape Out is a wildly intense and colorfully stylized smash ‘em up about primal escape, rhythmic violence, and frenetic jazz. Build up nearly unstoppable momentum and use your captors as both weapons and shields to crush everyone on your procedurally generated path to freedom.
Ape Out (Win 10), which is only included with Xbox Game Pass for PC, has one unobtainable achievement, so all you completionists may want to give this one a miss. Ape Out is a single-player beat-'em-up game where you play as a gorilla who has to make its way through a procedurally generated maze while avoiding/eliminating gun-wielding enemies. Ape Out was received well when it launched in 2019, so if you can ignore the unobtainable, you're probably going to be in for a good time with this one.

Darksiders Genesis

Darksiders Genesis Achievements

Description: DARKSIDERS: GENESIS is an action/adventure that tears its way through Hell and back with guns blazing and swords swinging. 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 history of the franchise.
Size: 11.3GB
Darksiders Genesis and its Windows 10 version (which has a separate achievement list) will drop out of both Xbox Game Pass libraries soon. Estimates suggest that a full completion will take you between 30 and 35 hours to unlock all of Darksiders Genesis' achievements, which should be more than doable in the time you have left — well, that's if you can complete all 17 levels on Apocalyptic difficulty and defeat the final boss without taking any damage.

Don't Starve: Giant Edition

Shipwrecked Update

Description: Don’t Starve: Giant Edition is an uncompromising wilderness survival game full of science and magic.
You play as Wilson, an intrepid Gentleman Scientist who has been trapped by a demon and transported to a mysterious wilderness world. Wilson must learn to exploit his environment and its inhabitants if he ever hopes to escape and find his way back home.
Size: 1.3GB
Don't Starve: Giant Edition is included in both Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass for PC but is a Play Anywhere title, so it shares an achievement list between the two platforms. Now, Don't Starve: Giant Edition on PC can be completed in less than an hour, thanks to console commands. Use that information how you will. We won't link to them here, but they are easy enough to find on TA should you want them.

Final Fantasy VII

FINAL FANTASY VII

Description: FINAL FANTASY VII, the timeless classic loved by a legion of fans, comes to Xbox One with a number of helpful extra features! Experience the return of an epic adventure beyond imagination, culminating in the final battle to decide the fate of the planet.
Size: 3.9GB
Final Fantasy VII and its Windows 10 version (which has a separate Windows 10 achievement list), are set to leave Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass for PC. Estimates suggest that unlocking all of Final Fantasy VII's achievements will take you between 25 and 30 hours. However, our highly-rated Final Fantasy VII walkthrough (written by IronInvoker47) suggests a completion estimate of between 30 and 50 hours. Either way, if the game does leave on or around the 15th, you should have enough time to finish it before it drops out of the service.

Train Sim World 2020

Train Sim World

Description: Train Sim World is an immersive first-person simulator perfect for everyone, with complete in-cab interactivity, accurate detail on locos, real-world routes and hours of gameplay. Take to the rails with the brand-new Train Sim World 2020 Edition and find everything you need to master new skills.
Train Sim World 2020 will leave both Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass for PC (where it has a Windows 10 achievement stack) soon. Train Sim World 2020 has a base list of just 10 achievements that will take you between 50 and 60 hours to unlock. The other 177 achievements attached to Trian Sim World 2020 come from the 27 DLC packs Dovetail Games has released for the simulator. The PC version has 13 unobtainable achievements related to these DLC packs, so you may want to avoid the Windows 10 release if you're a completionist.

Also leaving Xbox Game Pass for PC is Crossing Souls, which was published without Xbox Live achievement support.

The Xbox Game Pass mobile and PC apps aren't showing a date for when these games will leave just yet, but we expect they'll drop out of the service sometime around August 15th. As soon as we get confirmation from Microsoft of a confirmed date, we'll update this story.
