The first wave of Xbox Game Pass titles for August have been unveiled, with Ghost Recon Wildlands leading the charge, the open-world third-person shooter hitting the service from today. That means you can jump in and take on the Santa Blanca cartel in Bolivia, right now.

Later this week, programming puzzle game Shenzhen I/O hits PC Game Pass, alongside the day one release of Turbo Golf Racing, an arcade-style sports racing game for up to eight players. Akin to Rocket League, but with a golfing twist, Turbo Golf Racing will see you boosting, barrel rolling, and flying your rocket-powered car into massive golf balls, in a race to be first to the hole.

Then, from 9th August, Two Point Campus will enable you to create the university of your dreams, arriving day one on Xbox Game Pass, while Cooking Simulator offers a realistic kitchen in which to whip up one of eighty recipes using dozens of lifelike ingredients. Tasty. Turn-based RPG Expedition: Rome and economic RTS Offworld Trading Company for PC round off the month’s first wave of Game Pass titles.

Meanwhile, five games will also be removed from Xbox Game Pass on 15th August, including Train Sim World 2 and Curse of the Dead Gods. New Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Perks for Fall Guys, Skate 3, and The Elder Scrolls Online are also coming. You can take a look at the lot below.
