Here are the new Game Pass library additions for May 2024

By admin Apr30,2024

A new batch of games have been announced for Game Pass in May, including five that are playable on PC. There are siblings, felines, reapers, and a Croft. I’m struggling to identify a theme.

Here are the first batch of games coming to Game Pass on PC in May 2024:

  • Have A Nice Death – Today, April 30th
  • Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition – May 2nd
  • Kona II: Brume – May 7th
  • Little Kitty, Big City – May 9th
  • Brothers: A Tale Of Two Sons – May 14th

Have A Nice Death is a compelling loop of roguelike hack-and-slashing, and Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is the fancified first entry in Crystal Dynamics Lara-rebooting modern trilogy.

The pick of the new litter is clearly Little Kitty, Big City, however, which arrives on Game Pass on its launch day. It’s a playful adventure game that prompts YouTube commenters to scream “Untitled Cat Game” during every livestream in which it features, and not without cause. (Disclosure: Pip Warr, former resident of this blog, is the writer of Little Kitty, Big City. This is simply more of a reason to play it.)

As always, a new set of games arriving on Game Pass means another set of games are leaving. The following games will be removed from the Game Pass library on May 15th:

  • Eastern Exorcist
  • Eiyuden Chronicle Rising
  • Fuga: Melodies Of Steel 2
  • Ghostlore
  • Just Cause 4 Reloaded
  • Norco
  • SD Gundamn Battle Alliance
  • Suprealand Six Inches Under

I know people have a fond spot for Norco, which we named as one of our favourites from 2022. My pick of this batch would be Fuga: Melodies Of Steel 2, however, just for its relative obscurity. It’s about commanding a unit of anthropomorphic animals as they pilot a giant tank against dog fascists, chatting to one another to boost their stats Fire Emblem-style, then optionally feeding them into a huge soul cannon that kills them permanently. Who could resit that pitch?
