Microsoft have revealed that fifteen new titles are coming to Xbox Game Pass this May
Snowrunner arrived yesterday on Xbox Game Pass, but there are still fourteen other titles to land on Microsoft’s PC, Xbox and cloud based subscription service this May. As long as you have a current Xbox Game Pass subscription for PC or Xbox (or Ultimate if you want cloud gaming) you can play these games for free. Games could, and do, leave Xbox Game Pass but these should stick around long enough for you to finish whichever ones take your fancy.
The games arriving this May are:
- SnowRunner (Cloud, Console, and PC) – Out Now
- Peggle 2 (Cloud) – May 20th
- Secret Neighbor (PC) – May 20th
- The Catch: Carp & Coarse Fishing (Cloud, Console, and PC) – May 20th
- Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville (Cloud) – May 20th
- The Wild at Heart (Console and PC) – May 20th
- Knockout City (Console and PC) – May 21st
- Maneater (Cloud, Console, and PC) – May 25th
- SpellForce 3: Soul Harvest (PC) – May 27th
- Conan Exiles (Cloud and Console) – May 27th
- Fuzion Frenzy (Cloud) – May 27th
- Joy Ride Turbo (Cloud) – May 27th
- MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries (Console) – May 27th
- Slime Rancher (PC) – May 27th
- Solasta: Crown of the Magister (PC) – May 27th
So which titles are worth having? None of the games are absolutely, irredeemably terrible, though, when we reviewed it, we were disappointed that Mechwarrior 5 felt like “an old game given a fresh lick of paint.”
However, we’ve heard so many good things about Slime Rancher that we’re dying to dive in. SnowRunner, too, is great fun if you handle a truck game that doesn’t make life easy for you. We weren’t impressed by how repetitive Maneater’s quests were, but if you just want to roam around as a man-eating shark, pretending your victims are the board of directors at your work, you’ll get some fun out of.
Between all these games, Subnautica: Below Zero, Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, Resident Evil Village and now Biomutant, that backlog’s just going to keep on growing.
