Alongside yesterday's Deals with Gold announcement, Major Nelson today announced the July edition of Xbox Game Pass, with eight games releasing between July 4 and the rest a week later on July 11. Without further ado, here are the games releasing tomorrow:
Middle-earth: Shadow of War - July 4 (PC, Xbox One)

Undertale - July 4 (PC)
