Xbox fans are going to be pretty excited next month as the Xbox Game Pass service is set to expand quite a bit with a bunch of new games. There’s a huge variety of games across multiple genres, with some really great titles incoming. Check down below for the dates they’re set to release to the
Metal Gear Survive – 5/23
Arguably one of the worst games in the entire history of the Metal Gear franchise. It’s a weird game that takes survival horror, stealth and base-building into a mish-mash of elements that lack any of the real charm of the actual franchise. But if you like the idea of scrounging for resources while fighting zombies in a Metal Gear game, this may be for you.
The Banner Saga – 5/23
The Banner Saga is a seemingly simple strategy game that hides a fair bit of depth behind its basic setup and simple art style. The player leads a troop of survivors of a terrifying war which struggle to overcome increasingly threatening enemies from without and within. The player also has a fair amount of agency within the story based on their choices.
Void Bastards – 5/29
A stylistic and simple game that takes a very 90s cartoon aesthetic and applies it to a dystopian and creepy shooter.
Dead by Daylight – 5/30
An asymmetrical multiplayer game where one player hunts down the other as a deranged killer. There’s a big strategic layer and meta-game with killers and survivors gaining perks that grant new abilities and massively change the game. One of the better multiplayer games out right now.
Outer Wilds – 5/30
Another weird addition to the roster of Xbox Game Pass, offering a strange adventure across the stars as the player camps their way through the solar system.
Full Metal Furies – 6/6
This is one of the more interesting and surprising additions to the roster. As a cooperative-focused ARPG, Full Metal Furies brings a stylized and definite indie feel to fast-paced action. The game is a perfect choice for some quick multiplayer.
The Banner Saga 2 – 6/6
The sequel to the original Banner Saga takes the events of the strategy game to a new level. With more complex enemies and mechanics, the already desperate struggle of this beautiful title is about to get even more dangerous.
Superhot – 6/6
Superhot is an amazingly and deceptively simple mix of a shooter and puzzle-solving game. Players use slow-motion intercut with real-time shooter action to devise the best way to shoot their way through faceless enemies. Plenty of action to be had.
