Wolfenstein 2, Wargroove, and More are Coming to Xbox Game Pass in May

A bunch of great titles are coming to Game Pass in May.

If you're a member of Xbox's video game subscription service, Game Pass, you're about to get a handful of new titles for May. These include some big titles like Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, Tacoma, and more.

May's Xbox Game Pass offerings are full of critically-acclaimed darlings. Whether it's MachineGames' Nazi-hunting opus Wolfenstein 2, or Chucklefish's recent strategy throwback Wargroove. There's also Tacoma, the narrative space-adventure from the team behind Gone Home.

Here are the titles coming Xbox Game Pass in May, along with their release dates.

  • Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus – May 2
  • Wargroove – May 2
  • Descenders – May 7
  • Surviving Mars – May 9
  • Tacoma – May 9
  • Black Desert – May 9
  • For the King – May 10
  • The Surge – May 16
  • Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham – May 16

This is honestly one of the strongest line-ups we've seen in a while for Game Pass. We named Wolfenstein 2 one of the best games of 2017. We've also enjoyed games like Wargroove and Tacoma when we reviewed them.

Xbox Game Pass is a subscription service that lets users access a library of games, like Netflix. Game Pass has quickly become a major part of the Xbox One ecosystem, and Microsoft recently unveiled an All-Digital Xbox One S to further take advantage of the service. Xbox head Phil Spencer even hopes to bring Game Pass to any applicable device, even those that aren't made by Microsoft.
