Xbox Game Pass for Rest of May - 8 New Games, Including Sequel to Successful Strategy Game

We've learned the list of games coming to the PC/Xbox Game Pass in the second half of May 2023. It includes FIFA 23, as well as the soon to debut Railway Empire 2 and Planet of Lana.

We learned the list of titles that will hit the PC/Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate in the second half of May 2023. There are eight of them, but two - Ghostlore and Cassette Beasts - were already available in the PC version of the subscription, and now they will also hit the console version.

In general, however, it's not too bad - as two premiere games await us, namely the highly anticipated strategy game Railway Empire 2 and the lovely 2D platformer Planet of Lana. What's more, as every spring, the latest installment of the FIFA series will hit the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and PC Game Pass - in this case the one bearing the number 23. Subscribers to these services (and EA Play) will be able to play it today.

The full list of titles (along with platforms and dates) can be found below.

Some games are regularly removed from the PC/Xbox Game Pass and the second half of May will be no different. Admittedly, there are five of them, but they are unlikely to be titles that anyone will particularly miss.

On the other hand, more items coming to Game Pass will be announced in early June.
