GTA Says Goodbye, Yomi Says Hello
Microsoft’s first batch of Game Pass titles this May isn’t filled to the brim with high profile games, but we have a pretty solid list to get players started this month. Let’s check out what’s coming.
NBA 2K22 (Cloud, Console) – Available Now (Our Review)
Loot River (Cloud, Console, PC) – Available Now
Citizen Sleeper (Cloud, Console, PC) – May 5th
Trek to Yomi (Cloud, Console, PC) – May 5th
Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair Anniversary Edition (Cloud, Console, PC) – May 10th (Our Review)
Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising (Cloud, Console, PC) – May 10th
This War of Mine: Final Cut (Cloud, Console, PC) – May 10th
NHL 22 (Console) – May 12th
While not a huge list, it has some good titles. Loot River, Citizen Sleeper, and Trek to Yomi are all day one releases on Game Pass. Loot River brings action packed roguelike dungeon crawling, while Citizen Sleeper dumps you on a distant planet as you work to escape your past. Trek to Yomi borrows the aesthetics of a Kurosawa film as you fight your way through a samurai tail.
If none of those are your thing, Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising is set to introduce players to the world of Eiyuden Chronicle before the main game which drew so much attention on Kickstarter as a spiritual successor to Suikoden hits next year. Danganronpa 2 is arguably the best game in that series and will finally be available to Xbox players.
Sports fans will also have a great month, if they’re into the NBA or NHL. Or you can play what the developers claim will be the final version of This War of Mine. Sure.
Like every month, saying hello to this many games means saying goodbye to some others, and there are some big names this time leaving the service. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas – The Definitive Edition will leave May 10th. May 15th will see us saying goodbye to Enter the Gungeon, Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster, Remnant: From the Ashes, Steep, The Catch: Carp and Coarse, and The Wild at Heart all leave May 15th. Remember that you can still buy them all for now for 20% off if you’re interested.
