Xbox Game Pass May 2021 Red Dead Online Just Cause 4

Microsoft has just unveiled the first wave of new games coming to Xbox Game Pass this month. After Grand Theft Auto V came back to Xbox Game Pass for Console in April, Red Dead Online will follow up this month on May 13.

For those unfamiliar, Red Dead Online is the standalone multiplayer experience that also ships with Rockstar Games’ critically-acclaimed Red Dead Redemption 2. While not as popular as GTA Online, Red Dead Online has some fun missions that can be played in co-op, and it remains one of the most beautiful open-world games released during the previous console generation. Just like GTA V, Red Dead Online will also be available via Xbox Cloud Gaming on Android, iOS, and PCs.

Red Dead Online will be joined by Just Cause 4: Reloaded, Dragon Quest Builders 2, Just Cause 4: Reloaded, and more this month. For Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Xbox Game Pass for PC members, FIFA 21 will also be available via EA Play starting Thursday, May 6 (EA Play isn’t included with the standard Xbox Game Pass subscription).

You can find the full list of new Xbox Game Pass games with their release dates below:

  • Dragon Quest Builders 2 (Console and PC) – May 4
  • FIFA 21 (Console and PC) EA Play – May 6
  • Outlast 2 (Cloud, Console, and PC) ID@Xbox – May 6
  • Steep (Cloud and Console) – May 6

If you have yet to subscribe to Spotify Premium, the new Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Perks for May 2021 also include 4 months of Spotify Premium in select markets, in addition to a MyTEAM bundle for NBA 2K21 and a Star Wars-themed cosmetic item for Apex Legends. All these free Xbox Game Pass Ultimate perks will be available starting tomorrow, May 4.

Last but not least, Microsoft announced today that Alan Wake, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2, Dungeon of the Endless, Final Fantasy IX, Hotline Miami, and Plebby Quest: The Crusades will leave the Xbox Game Pass catalog next week on May 15. That’s it for now, but stay tuned for the second wave of new Xbox Game Pass games coming later this month.
