Xbox Game Pass Kicks Off May 2022 With Indies And Sports Games

In just a couple of days, on May 5, 2022, you’ll also be able to play “Trek to Yomi.” This is a story-driven samurai game that follows the life of a young swordsman called Hiroki. Set in black and white, the game still manages to deliver beautiful visuals and a classic tale of fighting the forces of evil. “Trek to Yomi” will be available via cloud gaming, on the Xbox console, and on PC. Another title that’s set to release on May 5 is “Citizen Sleeper,” a space-based narrative RPG that explores living and surviving in a dystopian, futuristic, sci-fi-like metropolis.

Three more titles will hit the platform on May 10, including the sequel “Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair Anniversary Edition,” “Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising,” and “This War of Mine: Final Cut.” The former arrives as a part of a successful franchise and the follow-up to the original “Danganronpa.” First released in 2010, the franchise established itself in the narrative novel video game genre, and the sequel seems to follow in its footsteps. “Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising” is also part of a larger franchise set in the same world as “Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes.” The game combines snappy combat with dialogue and various elements of an action-adventure RPG. Lastly, “This War of Mine: Final Cut” is a remaster of an already existing game that sees the player try to survive in a besieged city.

The game, set to release on May 12, is another sports title: “NHL 22.” If basketball is not your thing, two weeks after “NBA 2K22,” you’ll be able to indulge in the ultimate hockey experience through EA Play. The title offers realistic hockey simulations, with various visual upgrades and superstar players to choose from.
