In a news wire published today, Microsoft revealed that no less than nine titles would hit the service throughout May. First up is block-building fantasy RPG Dragon Quest Builders 2, which arrives from tomorrow, May 4, on both Xbox Game Pass for PC and console.
Following close behind on May 6 is a triplet of games, including the aforementioned FIFA 21, which joins the service as part of EA Play. The other two are the survival horror game Outlast 2 and Ubisoft’s alpine extreme sports sim Steep. All three will be available on console and PC.
May 13 is set to be the Xbox Game Pass’s biggest day this month when five games will be available. These are Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster (console and PC), Just Cause 4: Reloaded (cloud, console, and PC), Psychonauts (cloud, console, and PC), Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Online (cloud and console – no PC, unfortunately), and Remnant: From the Ashes (PC).
