Yakuza headlined the new arrivals coming to Xbox Game Pass in the first half of July, and now Microsoft has detailed what is coming for the rest of the month. The full Xbox Game Pass July 2022 lineup has two hit titles, as well as a new drama As Dusk Falls.

As Dusk Falls is the lone new game of the lot and is Interior Night’s first title, as well. Interior Night was started by Caroline Marchal, who previously worked at Detroit: Become Human developer Quantic Dream. The Quantic Dream links are somewhat apparent, as As Dusk Falls is an interactive narrative title with many branching paths. The title released to an average score of 76 on OpenCritic.

Watch Dogs 2 released in 2016 and took the tech-centric open-world series into a new, more lighthearted direction, a shift that likely came from the criticisms levied at the first title. It sees hacker Marcus Holloway and his crew of friends take their skills to the San Francisco Bay Area in an attempt to stick it to the tech bros that have taken over. As is the case with many Ubisoft games, Watch Dogs 2 also supports FPS Boost on Xbox Series X|S, meaning users can play the title at 60 frames per second on new hardware.

Inside also originally came out in 2016, but could not be more different than Watch Dogs 2. It is the second title from developer Playdead and was revered for its intriguing and wordless story, creepy world, stellar animation, and clever puzzles. Inside is about much more than meets the eye, which is likely why many are looking forward to Playdead’s next game, whatever that may be.
