Xbox One Game Pass May Lineup Revealed

Plus a bonus for Rocket League players.

4 Comments

May is here and Microsoft has announced a new slate of Xbox Game Pass titles joining the subscription line-up over the course of the month. As usual this initial burst of announcements covers the first half of May, with more announcements likely to come later and fill out the remaining days.

As of May 2, Game Pass subscribers have access to Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus. The first-person shooter inserts you deep into Nazi-occupied America with a cast of colorful characters at your side. That same day the service adds Wargroove, the retro turn-based strategy game reminiscent of Advance Wars.

On May 9, the service will add the resource management sim Surviving Mars and Tacoma, the sci-fi narrative adventure game from the makers of Gone Home, along with the MMORPG Black Desert. The strategy RPG For the King is being added as well, and while it officially launches on May 10, Game Pass subscribers get it three days early on May 7. As detailed in a separate announcement, the rogue-like Descenders will also leave early access and launch on Game Pass (and Steam) on May 7 as well.

Finally, on May 16, Game Pass will add tough sci-fi Souls-like The Surge along with the notably more family-friendly Lego Batman 3.

This month will also get a little bonus benefit outside of the slate of included games. Rocket League, which is already included in Game Pass, is launching an Xbox Customization Pack with in mid-July. Game Pass members get the pack early, and free. Psyonix recently announced it is being acquired by Epic Games, but promised that day-to-day play of Rocket League will continue unchanged.

Xbox Game Pass is an all-you-can-eat subscription service for $10 / £7.99 / AUD $10.95 per month, offering full game downloads. This is separate from Xbox Live Gold, which just outlined its own free games for the month of May. The two also recently got an "Ultimate" bundle that packages them together. If you haven't tried out Game Pass yet, you can sample it for cheap for a limited time. The offer gives you 3 months for just one buck.

Most of these have already been on Gamepass, were taken off, and are recycled in.

@Utnayan: Not a single one of those games have ever been on Game Pass.

I fact checked before writing this. Maybe you should too.
