Microsoft have announced the second wave of Xbox Game Pass additions for May 2020, which means we’ll be welcoming three games while saying goodbye to five. It doesn’t sound like the best trade deal ever conceived, but there’s worthwhile additions here.
As part of an Xbox blog post, it was revealed that the five games leaving Xbox Game Pass on May 29th are #IDARB, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. Hydro Thunder Hurricane. King of Fighters ’98 Ultimate and Old Man’s Journey. In fairness, two of those games (Hydro Thunder Hurricane and KoF ’98) are Xbox 360 arcade games, so they’re no big loss. Meanwhile, #IDARB, Brothers and Old Man’s Journey are noted for being easy 1000G completions, so it might be worth playing them before they go. #IDARB will need another online player, mind you, but they’re easy nonetheless.
Meanwhile, we’ll see three new games added to the service, two of which are available now. From today, players can download Xbox 360 horror title and absolute banger Alan Wake, along with the city management title Cities: Skylines, which has previously been available on Game Pass before. Revolving door policy, I guess. Lastly, on May 26th, we’ll be able to play Minecraft: Dungeons, which is available for pre-install right now.
