New Xbox Game Pass Titles For May 2021 Revealed

The list includes Red Dead Online, FIFA 21, Steep, and more.


Microsoft has announced the next wave of titles coming to Xbox Game Pass throughout the first half of May, and there are some big ones on the list. The games coming to Game Pass in May includes Dragon Quest Builders 2, FIFA 21, Outlast 2, Steep, and Red Dead Online.

Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster, Just Cause 4: Reloaded, Psychonauts, and Remnant: From the Ashes are also on the way. Note that for FIFA 21, it's included with EA Play so you need to be a member of the more expensive Xbox Game Pass Ultimate offering to grab that game. As usual, this announcement covers a couple of weeks, so we can expect another round of Game Pass games coming later in the month.

Xbox Game Pass is Microsoft's subscription service, offering a rotating library of games. The console and PC versions of the service cost $10 per month apiece, and a combined Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription for $15 per month combines both along with its cloud streaming feature. That service recently launched its PC and iOS beta test, though the iOS version has to use a browser app due to Apple's policies for standalone apps.
