Xbox Game Pass adds a feast of indie games

The latest batch of games headed for Xbox Game Pass has been revealed, bringing a bunch of indie games to Microsoft’s subscription service.

Side-scrolling fighting game Trek to Yomi tops the pack of new Xbox Game Pass titles. It’s a mythical, monochromatic adventure that follows a lone samurai and sells itself as a cinematic and narrative combatant.

It’s accompanied by Loot River, a dungeon-crawling rogue-like, which combines top-down combat with block-switching puzzle mechanics. You’ll fight your way through procedurally generated levels while moving and rotating their very foundations to open up new paths.

The sci-fi text-based role-playing game Citizen Sleeper is also available on the indie front. Inspired by tabletop RPGs, it emphasizes player freedom, giving you an entire lawless space station to explore, as you navigate its troublesome inhabitants.

Other games include Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair Anniversary Edition, Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising, This War of Mine: Final Cut, and NHL 22 through EA Play.

Here are all the games coming to Xbox Game Pass in May:

  • Loot River – available now
  • Trek to Yomi (Cloud, Console, and PC) – May 5
  • Sleeper Citizen – May 5
  • Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair Anniversary Edition – May 10
  • Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising – May 10
  • This War of Mine: Final Cut – May 10
  • NHL May 22 – May 12

As some games are added, others are removed. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas – The Definitive Edition will be retired from subscription service on May 10.

The recent remaster of Rockstar’s 2004 crime ’em up wasn’t warmly received when it launched last year, but recent patches have gone a long way to fixing its most glaring bugs. If you haven’t had the chance to experience the glory days of Grove Street, give it a spin before it goes out of service.

Likewise, Enter The Gungeon, Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster, Remnant: From the Ashes, Steep, The Catch: Carp and Coarse, and The Wild at Heart will leave the platform on May 15.
