The first half of May was pretty solid for Xbox Game Pass, and the second half looks to be even better with some exciting new additions coming to the service. Among them is the latest edition of the FIFA franchise, not to mention some indie standouts like Planet of Lana, Cassette Beasts and Chicory: A Colorful Tale. Check out the full list of everything we know of coming in the second half of May.

FIFA 23 (Console and PC) EA Play

  • Eastern Exorcist (May 18)
  • Ghostlore (May 18)
  • Planet of Lana (May 23)

Unfortunately, there will also be a round of removals on Xbox Game Pass at the end of the month, as per usual. Below are the five games that will be leaving Xbox Game Pass on May 31.

  • Europa Universalis 
  • Evil Genius 2: World Domination 
  • FIFA 21 
  • Floppy Knights 
  • Lawn Mowing Simulator 
Evil Genius 2: World Domination
Evil Genius 2: World Domination.

The good news is that these games can be bought at a discount of at least 20% before they are removed, and of course they will be available for purchase afterward (though not with the discount). So now is the time to act if there is something on the list of removals you want for keeps. To learn more head over to the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate FAQ page.
