Xbox Game Pass: Hitman Season 1, Dead Rising 2, and more for August

Hitman has arrived on Xbox Game Pass alongside Dead Rising 2, Ryse: Son of Rome, and more.

Xbox Game Pass subscribers can fire up their Xbox One and download Season 1 of Hitman, The Escapists: The Walking Dead, and more for a total of seven titles this month.

The remastered Xbox 360 Kinect supported game Rush: A Disney Pixar Adventure is also available, alongside Dead Rising 2.

Crytek-developed Ryse: Son of Rome has been added the lineup. Originally developed as first-person Kinect-only for Xbox 360. Kinect was eventually forced to sit in the backseat as development switched it over to a third-person, hack-and-slash. Kinect became an option to provide squad commands through speech and gesture.

Other titles added to the Xbox Game Pass for August are Ruiner and Dandara.
