Microsoft’s Major Nelson has announced that the new games headed to Xbox Game Pass in May will be revealed tomorrow, April 25th. Before then, though, he gave a sneak peek at one of the upcoming additions.
Shared in a tweet, which you can see below, Nelson revealed Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 will be one of the titles to join the Xbox subscription service in May.

The Konami and PES Productions title is the latest in the long-running soccer franchise. The game debuted to favorable reviews for its focus on solid gameplay and the reintroduction of the Random Selection Match feature. Players also have access to a character creation mode, which allows them to make their own sports star or use a pre-existing real-world athlete.
PES 2018 is just one of the games headed to Xbox Game Pass in May, though. We already know State of Decay 2 will join the library when it launches May 22nd. It’s unclear what the other new titles will be, but it seems players will know more on April 25th. However, a recent tease from Xbox suggests that we could see Halo: The Master Chief Collection as the standout addition next month.
Microsoft also recently removed a selection of games from the service, including Lumo, NBA 2K17, and WWE 2K17.
Currently, Xbox One owners can join Game Pass for $9.99 a month, granting access to over 100 games. The best part? Subscribers get access to all first-party Microsoft games the day that they launch.
