The first wave of Xbox Game Pass releases for May has been revealed, and it includes a mix of vampires, cult classics, and subgenres of RPGs. The much-awaited Redfall is undoubtedly the highlight of the list, being the first-party game coming from developer Arkane under Bethesda.

Other Releases

Aside from Redfall, two other day-one releases are set to be available on Xbox Game Pass this May.

Meanwhile, Weird West: Definitive Edition for Xbox Series X|S rounds out the list. This game comes from the former creative leads of Dishonored and Prey, two previous Arkane games.

Quantum Break’s Return

Aside from the new titles, Microsoft has also announced that Quantum Break is set to return to Xbox Game Pass. This action-adventure video game lets players manipulate time during combat and can be experienced by subscribers soon.
