What you need to know
- The latest batch of games headed to Xbox Game Pass has been revealed.
- There's games like Sniper Elite 5, Her Story, Hardspace Shipbreaker, and Jurassic World Evolution 2.
- Assassin's Creed Origins is still coming to the service but isn't included in this batch.
Microsoft shared more games coming to Xbox Game Pass, with a dinosaur construction simulator, Nazi-killing simulator, and more all available, or will shortly will be available in the service.
As detailed via Xbox Wire on Tuesday, several new games are headed to Xbox Game Pass in the month of May. If you want to kill Nazis by making increasingly improbable shots, there's Sniper Elite 5. Anyone looking to chop up starships can try out Hardspace: Shipbreaker, while theme park enthusiasts have Jurassic World Evolution 2 to play.
All these games come in addition to the titles added previously in the month. While it's definitely more of a PC-focused month, there's still plenty of games for users on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, or Xbox One to try out.
Interestingly, there's still no sign of Assassin's Creed Origins. Back in April, Microsoft shared that Assassin's Creed Origins would be joining Xbox Game Pass sometime in the next couple of months, so assuming plans haven't changed, it should be coming fairly soon.
Here's all the different games already available or coming soon to Xbox Game Pass, PC Game Pass, and Xbox Cloud Gaming:
