It seems that Microsoft is very fond of announcing new additions to the Xbox Game Pass catalog: the company makes such announcements twice a month, and periodically repeats the same games in them. Yes, after first news at the beginning of July, today the second appeared: in particular, it confirms that The Cave and Techtonica (Game Preview) promised two weeks earlier have already entered the catalog.
In addition, the following game is also already available:
