Xbox Game Pass adds Vampire Survivors, Pac-Man, and more

Another month means another new batch of games coming to Xbox Game Pass. Microsoft’s hit gaming subscription service is getting another smorgasbord of new titles, including the hit early access title Vampire Survivors, and a day one addition in Pac Man Museum+.

[SPOILERS] Vampire Survivors v0.5.2 teaser

Set to hit Game Pass PC on May 19, Vampire Survivors is perhaps the most notable addition here. The early access title (that we previously called “the closest thing to a killer app for the Steam Deck“) throws players in the middle of a monster hoard and simply tasks them with surviving. Players need to dodge and slash through endless waves of enemies as they level up their arsenal.

May’s Game Pass is also dropping quite a few brand new releases that’ll launch on the platform day and date. Pac Man Museum+ (Cloud, Console, and PC), Hardspace: Shipbreaker (PC), Umurangi Generation Special Edition (Cloud, console, and PC), Little Witch in the Woods (Game Preview) (Console and PC), Floppy Knights (Cloud, Console, and PC), and Sniper Elite 5 (Console and PC) are all being added to the library the day they release.

Here’s everything coming this month, along with what platforms they’ll be available on.

  • Her Story (PC): May 17
  • Jurassic World Evolution 2 (Cloud, Console, and PC): May 17
  • Little Witch in the Woods (Game Preview) (Console and PC): May 17
  • Skate (Cloud): May 17
  • Umurangi Generation Special Edition (Cloud, Console, and PC): May 17

Xbox Game Pass adds a little and loses a lot this month
persona 4 golden 500000 players all out attack

Microsoft revealed the games coming to and leaving Xbox Game Pass this month, and there's an odd imbalance. Only three new games are announced to be coming to the service throughout the rest of January. Still, we will lose six games on January 15, including last year's indie hidden gem Nobody Saves the World and We Happy Few, a title from first-party Xbox studio Compulsion Games. 
As for what's coming to Xbox Game Pass throughout the rest of January, we have three highly anticipated Xbox ports that are day-one launches on the subscription service. Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden will come to the service on January 19, while Monster Hunter Rise will be added on January 20. All three games will be available across the cloud, console, and PC versions of the service. Meanwhile, the what's leaving on January 15 list is double the length of what's being added:

We Happy Few
Nobody Saves the World
Windjammers 2
The Anacrusis
Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc

High on Life includes a full ’90s cult movie that you can watch in-game
Tammy pets a T-Rex in Tammy and the T-Rex.

High on Life is out now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. The adventure will likely take you around 10 to 15 hours to beat, but you might want to plan to spend an extra 82 minutes in it. That's because you can watch the 1994 cult classic Tammy and the T-Rex in its entirety within the game, if you so desire.

The central plot of High on Life revolves around a three-eyed alien named Gene who winds up crashing on the hero's couch. While he earns his keep by coordinating bounties and giving players upgrades, he's a bit of a mooch who spends the game watching TV. He very specifically seems to love Tammy and the T-Rex. If you've got time to kill, you can watch the entire movie in-game, start to finish.
