Broforce and Everspace 2 we'd already heard about, but A Short Hike, Limbo, and Airborne Kingdom are all a surprise. Wonderful adventure game A Short Hike is next on August 3 — as the name suggests, it's a shorter game and should take between five to six hours to complete. Then in a complete change of pace we have run-and-gun game Broforce on August 8, which comes with an expanded campaign, new challenge levels, and more. The Windows version of Broforce does have one unobtainable achievement however, so let's hope Broforce will be a smooth run (and gun) when it arrives for Xbox consoles and Game Pass on August 8. Next is puzzle platforming game Limbo on August 9, followed by city building and management game Airborne Kingdom on August 10, and then sci-fi adventure Everspace 2 for Xbox Series X|S on August 15.

With all those on the way, we also have four more games leaving Xbox Game Pass soon.
