The Highly-Rated 'Firewatch' Is Available Today With Xbox Game Pass (August 17)

August's Xbox Game Pass additions may be winding down before a huge September for the service, but we are still getting some great games added to the library during the remainder of the month. One of those is returning title Firewatch - which is now back in the Game Pass library!

Firewatch is a highly-rated narrative adventure that's well worth spending an evening with, especially if you're a current Game Pass subscriber. Here's a bit more information on the title, along with a gameplay trailer to show you exactly what you're in for:

Firewatch (Console, PC, Cloud)

"The year is 1989. You are a man named Henry who has retreated from his messy life to work as a fire lookout in the Wyoming wilderness. Perched high atop a mountain, it’s your job to look for smoke and keep the wilderness safe. An especially hot, dry summer has everyone on edge.
Your supervisor Delilah is available to you at all times over a small, handheld radio—your only contact with the world you've left behind. But when something strange draws you out of your lookout tower and into the forest, you’ll explore a wild and unknown environment, facing questions and making choices that can build or destroy the only meaningful relationship you have."

Are you going to give Firewatch a go this month? It might be on the replay list for us now it's back on Game Pass!
