Xbox announced in early May which games are coming to Game Pass. In addition to the previously announced Redfall, subscribers will get games like Ravenlok and Fuga: Melodies of Steel 2 from day one. In addition to the games, Xbox has announced that it is offering a friend referral program for Game Pass users.
The first game on the list is Redfall, which is already available on Game Pass. The co-op shooter made a poor impression at launch, but at least it’s available for Game Pass users to try for free. The other game launching this week is Cococucumber’s adventure game Ravenlok, a day one release on May 4. The rest of the additions will be added to Game Pass next week: Action RPG Weird West (May 8) and the Shadowrun Trilogy (May 9) are the first. The latest addition is turn-based RPG Fugue: Melodies of Steel 2, a day one launch.
Xbox also unveiled a new system for Game Pass Ultimate and PC Game Pass users. Called the “Friend referral offer”, can give up to five friends a free 14-day trial of PC Game Pass. The friends, who must be new to Game Pass, can play most Game Pass titles and also have access to EA Play and Riot Games titles like League of Legends and Teamfight Tactics.
The Game Pass sacrifice titles for the first half of the month are Before We Leave, Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair, Hearts of Iron IV, Her Story, and Umurangi Generation. All games will leave Game Pass on May 15.
