Hades is among Xbox Game Pass titles leaving the service this month

Hades, Spiritfarer, the Myst remake, and more are among titles leaving Xbox Game Pass at he end of August.


Xbox Game Pass is quite the awesome program for games for the most part. Xbox has invested a lot into allowing Xbox and PC players to play various games in its service as long as players are subscribed. However, an unfortunate part of that is that some games only stay on Xbox Game Pass service for a limited time. And particularly unfortunate is that some absolute bangers are leaving Xbox Game Pass at the end of August, including the impeccable Hades.

Xbox shared this news via an Xbox Wire post on the latest additions to Xbox Game Pass on August 16, 2022. According to the post, once August 31 hits, Hades will be among a collection of titles that are exiting playability on the Xbox Game Pass program. Players can still purchase the game on Xbox or PC through the Xbox Store, but it and other games on the list coming to the end of their terms with Xbox Game Pass and will no longer be available via the service.

Some of these titles are on discount already, but you can also check out our weekly console and PC deals to stay aware of good sales.

Nonetheless, consider this a wholehearted PSA to check out Hades on Xbox Game Pass while you can. It’s well worth it.
