One of the most highly-anticipated new Xbox Game Pass releases in August is Twelve Minutes, an interactive thriller starring a Hollywood cast, and you can now pre-download (and pre-order) it ahead of time if you want to.

There is a catch, in that if you haven't bought the game and you just want to pre-load it with Game Pass, you'll need to use the official Xbox app on Android or iOS for now, where you can choose 'Download to Console'.

We're assuming Microsoft will soon unlock the ability to pre-download Twelve Minutes via Xbox Game Pass directly through the Game Pass app on console, and we'll update you when we notice this option going live.

Fortunately, you don't really need to worry about pre-downloading this one too early if you don't want to, as it clocks in at just over 2.3GB on Xbox Series X, so it's certainly not going to take up too much storage space.

TWELVE MINUTES is a real-time top-down interactive thriller with an accessible click and drag interface. Featuring James McAvoy, Daisy Ridley, and Willem Dafoe.
