It’s not all good news though. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas – The Definitive Edition will be leaving Game Pass on May 10 while five days later (May 15) 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 also be departing.
“That closes the first list of Game Pass games coming in May,” said Xbox before adding that players should “stay tuned for more updates later this month,” implying there’s even more titles to come.
Earlier this year it was revealed that Xbox Game Pass subscribers play 40 per cent more games than those who aren’t signed up to the service.
Those subscribed will also spend 50 per cent more on the games they play via in-game purchases and add-ons.
Sharing the news in a Pitch Notes blog, EA explained that while the company is “eager to let our players connect across multiple platforms” the first phase of testing will only involve Online Seasons and Online Friendlies on the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Stadia versions” of the game.
