There are a bunch of exciting games heading to Xbox Game Pass in August, and one of the highlights is undoubtedly interactive thriller Twelve Minutes, which is launching into the service on its release day on August 19.

Ahead of the release, Collider has been given an exclusive reveal of almost ten minutes' worth of behind-the-scenes footage, primarily centred around the process of recording the game's dialogue with Hollywood stars Daisy Ridley, James McAvoy and Willem Dafoe, also featuring lots of comments from creative director, Luis Antonio.

Twelve Minutes will be available across Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PC and Xbox Cloud Gaming via Xbox Game Pass at launch, and here's a description courtesy of Antonio about what to expect:

"In Twelve Minutes, you play as a man coming home for what should be a romantic evening with your wife. The night twists into a nightmare when a brutish policeman breaks into your home, accuses your wife of murder, and beats you to death… only for you to wake up, suddenly returned to the moment you opened the front door. Your wife is blissfully unaware of what is about to happen, but you… you remember everything.

Every time twelve minutes elapses or the man dies, the loop restarts and pops the man right back to the start of the evening. The other characters revert to the state they were in when we met them, but every experience the protagonist endures affects him permanently. As your knowledge accumulates, a twisted and surprising story unfolds, tearing the facade off the idyllic couple’s lives.

Twelve Minutes features accessible, point-and-click controls that allow for an immersive experience with little to no hand holding. It’s just you, the man you control, and the choices you make. And it all happens in real time."
