Game Pass is Adding 12 More Games, and 6 Are Day One Releases – GameRant


Microsoft confirms 12 more games coming to its Game Pass subscription services in May 2022, including six day one releases.
By now, Xbox Game Pass subscribers should know how the game reveals work. Microsoft starts the month by revealing the new Xbox Game Pass games coming in the next two weeks, and then another announcement comes midway through the month when another batch of games is announced. Microsoft has now revealed the new Xbox Game Pass games coming in the second half of May 2022, and they consist of 12 titles, including six day one releases.
Five of the new Xbox Game Pass games for May 2022 are available as of May 17. On PC Game Pass, subscribers can check out the critically-acclaimed Her Story, while those on console and PC can play the early access version of Little Witch in the Woods. Those across cloud, console, and PC can play Jurassic World Evolution 2 and day one game Umurangi Generation Special Edition. And finally, Skate has been added to the Cloud for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers thanks to the service's integration with EA Play.

Later this week, there are even more games for Xbox Game Pass subscribers to look forward to. May 19 will see the addition of Farming Simulator 22 across cloud, console, and PC, while Vampire Survivors is hitting PC Game Pass that day as well. On May 24, Game Pass subscribers on cloud, console, and PC can play day one game Floppy Knights, while PC Game Pass users can check out day one game Hardspace: Shipbreaker.
Another day one game is coming to Xbox Game Pass on May 26 in the form of Sniper Elite 5, which is scheduled to hit consoles and PC. And finally, the last day one Xbox Game Pass game for May 2022 will release on May 27 across cloud, console, and PC in the form of Pac-Man Museum+. It will be joined that day by Cricket 22 on PC Game Pass. Console Game Pass gamers already have access to that game, so PC Game Pass is playing a bit of catch-up.
Xbox Game Pass had a busy May 2022, to say the least, and so it will be interesting to see what June has to offer. Xbox Game Pass subscribers will likely have to wait until around the beginning of next month to learn about all the new games coming to the service in June 2022. While they wait, the new Xbox Game Pass games for May 2022 should have enough variety to keep them busy.
