Microsoft announced at Gamescom 2019 that Devil May Cry 5 will be joining the Xbox Game Pass library today, and will be joined by Age of Empires: Definitive Edition. But there is much more on the way, such as Ape Out and Bard's Tale 4.

The Xbox Game Pass library is going to be stocked with great titles this month, with seven new games being added to the service through the end of August. First up are Devil May Cry 5 and Age of Empires: Definitive Edition, two of the heaviest hitters on the schedule. Subscribers can also look forward to the spacefaring strategy game Stellaris, which is also available today for consoles and will be heading to Xbox Game Pass for PC soon.

Later on this week, Ape Out will join the service on Thursday, August 22. This title is a wild beat 'em up that has players tap into their primal instincts. It's violent, colorful, and the action is accompanied by a manic drum beat. On the same day, Aug. 22, Kingdom Come: Deliverance, an action role-playing game that takes place in the medieval Kingdom of Bohemia, will be added. It has historically accurate content and has been praised for its story and attention to detail.
