Xbox Game Pass additions for August include Coffee Talk, Immortality, Immortals: Fenyx Rising, and much more.

Starting things off, Coffee Talk is arriving on Xbox Game Pass for console, cloud, and PC players today on August 16. A combination of a heartfelt visual novel with a colorful cast of characters and a coffee-brewing minigame, Coffee Talk was spearheaded by veteran developer Mohammad Fahmi, who sadly passed away earlier this year.

After Coffee Talk comes Midnight Fight Express, which we first saw footage of earlier this year when it was unveiled for Xbox systems. The action-packed brawler, made by a single developer, will be available on Xbox Game Pass on day one next week on August 23, across console and PC systems.

After that, open-ended puzzler Exapunks arrives on the subscription service a few days later on August 25, joined by acclaimed visual novel Opus: Echo of Starsong - Full Bloom Edition on the same day. The former is only available for PC players, while the latter will launch for both PC and Xbox.

A few days later on August 30, there's actually four games coming to Xbox Game Pass, two of them being day one launches. Those two would be the eagerly-anticipated Immortality from Her Story lead Sam Barlow, and the exploration-driven Tinykin.

Commandos 3: HD Remaster and Ubisoft's Immortals: Fenyx Rising round out the Xbox Game Pass offerings that same day on August 30. All things considered, it's a pretty stacked month for Xbox's subscription service, with two narrative standouts in Coffee Talk and Immortality leading the additions.
