Xbox has revealed a new set of games coming to Xbox Game Pass in May. This includes Day One launch games on the service such as Trek to Yomi, Sniper Elite 5, and Hardspace: Shipbreaker.
Other games hitting the service this month include Loot River, NHL 22, Danganronpa 2, Floppy Knights, Pacman Museum+, and more. But, this is just the first wave of games coming to Xbox Game Pass in May, with another selection expected to be revealed around halfway through the month. For now, here's everything so far coming to Game Pass this month.
Trek to Yomi is Available on Game Pass from May 5
Trek to Yomi is a cinematic action-adventure game that takes inspiration from legendary Japanese filmmaker Akira Kurosawa. It's releasing on May 5, and will be available at launch on Xbox Game Pass for console, cloud, and PC.
Loot River is Available on Xbox Game Pass Now
The first game to hit Xbox Game Pass this month is Loot River, a procedurally generated dungeon crawler that combines real-time combat and spatial block-shifting. It's also one of many games to be given a 'Souls-like' tag in its Steam listing.
