It’s that time of the month again, and Xbox is showing off the new additions coming to Xbox Game Pass in May 2021.
Xbox Game Pass continues to be the best subscription service in the gaming industry, with its May 2021 releases. Already, the service offers hundreds of games across PC and console platforms, with all of Xbox’s first-party titles dropping there on Day One.
What’s more, now users can even play Xbox Game Pass titles on iOS and PC thanks to Cloud Gaming! But the most important part of a subscription service is keeping your subscribers happy.
That’s why we’re glad to see that May 2021’s Xbox Game Pass titles include some big names. Thankfully, there should be new opportunities to get your hands on an Xbox Series X/S this week, for those looking for a Game Pass machine!
And even more excitingly, Microsoft predicts that the Xbox Series X/S shortage is going to end soon!
