Xbox Game Pass For Rest Of May 2022 Revealed, Including 6 Day-One New Releases

Xbox Game Pass is finishing May 2022 on a high note with many additions to the catalog.


The next batch of Xbox Game Pass titles for May have been revealed as we pass the midpoint of the month, and they include five titles available right now, with more to follow as we move deeper into the month. There will be six day-one launches available in May alone, including a major third-party game that will be full-price on other platforms.

Available today on Xbox Game Pass for PC is Her Story, the nonlinear mystery/crime fiction story about a woman interviewed seven times by the police. Players piece together the clues each time to discover... her story. Also out today on Game Pass is Jurassic World Evolution 2 for cloud, console, and PC.

There are two day-one new releases on Game Pass today, too, the first of which is Little Witch in the Woods on console and PC through Game Preview. This is a game about an apprentice witch exploring a mystical forest. The second day-one new release out today is the first-person photography sandbox game Umurangi Generation: Special Edition for cloud, console, and PC.

Additionally, the original Skate from EA is out now on Game Pass through EA Play via the cloud, which should make it easier to try it out since it requires no local download.

Then on May 19, Farming Simulator 22 is added to the Game Pass catalog across cloud, console, and PC, while the gothic-horror game Vampire Survivors arrives that day as well on PC. On May 24, Game Pass adds two more day-one new releases, including the tactics/card game Floppy Knights for cloud, console, and PC; and Hardspace: Shipbreaker on PC. On May 26, Sniper Elite 5 comes to Game Pass for console and PC as yet another day-one new release, and a very high-profile one at that.

Cricket 22 joins PC Game Pass on May 27, while Pac-Man: Museum+ rounds out the month as the final day-one new release of the month that day across cloud, console, and PC.

As mentioned, this is the second wave of Xbox Game Pass additions for May 2022; the first group of additions included Trek to Yomi and NHL 22, among others. Additionally, Xbox Live members can now grab even more Games With Gold titles for May 2022.
