Xbox’s May Game Pass offerings are a bit dull outside of Chicory

Did Redfall add any value for you?

On any given month when there’s a massive first-party value offer for a service like Xbox Game Pass, you can bet on the rest of the month quaking in fear of the might of the publisher that holds all the power. But in the case of Redfall (particularly when it comes to public perception), this might have been a not-great month to flex.

The offerings for May 2023 (so far) are fairly slim, outside of the fantastic Chicory: A Colorful Tale, which won our overall Game of the Year award in 2021. Maybe Massive Chalice is worth a punt since you’re not spending any extra money on it? Or maybe you’re deathly curious about how FIFA is coming along this decade. There’s a fair bit of hype regarding Cassette Beasts, which came out in April and has had a great reception so far.

Either way, this is what you’re getting this month beyond Redfall. Peaks and valleys, folks!
