Microsoft is almost ready to begin its Xbox Game Pass new game introductions for May, and during the first half of the month, there are some heavy hitters coming towards subscribers. Among these, EA's latest soccer game FIFA 21, Ubisoft's Steep, Psychonauts from Double Fine, and the multiplayer portion of Red Dead Redemption are included.
Here is everything coming to the PC and Xbox services and their launch dates on them:
Dragon Quest Builders 2 (Console and PC) – May 4
FIFA 21 (Console and PC) EA Play – May 6
Outlast 2 (Cloud, Console, and PC) – May 6

The cloud tag next to a name means that the game is also available for streaming via Microsoft's Xbox cloud play services. The service recently began a beta run across PC and iOS devices, aiming to finally end its reliance on just Android devices.
As for the games leaving soon, these six titles will end their run on the services on May 15:
- Alan Wake (Console and PC)
- Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 (PC)
- Dungeon of the Endless (Cloud, Console and PC)

Xbox Game Pass new arrivals aren't finished with May just yet, but aside from any surprise drops, fans will have to wait until the second half of the month to find out what else is heading towards the services.
