There are eight games coming to the Xbox Game Pass in May. The games have different dates they will be available to play, so here’s the schedule for May’s releases.

May 1

Homefront: The Revolution is an open-world shooter set in an America overrun by the Korean People’s Army. Playing as Ethan Brady, players must join the resistance and fight to restore America’s independence.

Overcooked is a local co-op gamer’s dream. Players join forces to manage a crazy kitchen and must feed hordes of hungry customers as fast as possible. Expect plenty of goofy moments and fun gameplay.

Sonic & Knuckles is the classic 1994 side-scroller originally released for the SEGA Genesis. If you want some old school Sonic fun, look no further than this sequel to Sonic the Hedgehog 3.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 is the only game on this list that has an announced cut-off date. This year’s soccer experience will only be available on Xbox Game Pass until Aug. 31, so get your time on the pitch in while you can.

The Escapists is a pixel art prison escape game. Make sure you increase your stats by studying and working out before your big break, if you want to get out alive.

Unmechanical is a puzzle game with players taking on the role of a tiny robot. Players are stuck in an underground complex and must solve a series of brain-benders in order to escape to freedom.

May 10

Laser League is a brand new game, and will be available in Xbox Game Pass on the same day it is available for sale. Players join a team and must trap opponents in a constantly-evolving maze of lasers without getting trapped themselves. Games are fast and fun, so give this one a try once it is available.

May 22

State of Decay 2 continues Microsoft’s pledge to release all Microsoft-published games directly to Xbox Game Pass the same day titles become available for sale. This zombie survival game will be cross-platform with gamers on Windows 10 PCs, so get your whole crew together to see how long you can last in this apocalypse.
