Xbox Game Pass in May 2022: Sniper Elite 5, Jurassic World Evolution 2, and More

Xbox has revealed its second wave of games coming to Xbox Game Pass in May. We’ve already seen Trek to Yomi, NHL 22, and Loot River come to Game Pass in the first half of the month, and now games such as Sniper Elite 5, Vampire Survivors, Jurassic World Evolution 2, Pacman Museum+, and more are coming to the Game Pass over the next couple of weeks.

More games are expected to hit the service soon, including Assassin’s Creed Origins, but with it confirmed to be not turning up in May, you should probably expect it in June instead. For now, here’s everything so far coming to Game Pass this month. (ICYMI, Sony has also announced some of the games coming to the new PS Plus as well)

Sniper Elite 5 is On Game Pass from May 26

The award winning shooter series is returning with Sniper Elite 5, and it’ll be available on day one of release on Xbox Game Pass for console and PC users. Experience sniping and tactical third-person combat with a wild x-ray kill-cam that can still produce some stunning cinematic shots.

Jurassic World Evolution 2 is Now on Xbox Game Pass

“While it lacks the customization and management depth of Frontier’s other recent, excellent park-builders, Planet Coaster and Planet Zoo, getting to see these prehistoric beasts at eye-level from one of those stylish ‘90s tour Jeeps has never looked more enticing.” – IGN reviewed Jurassic World: Evolution 2 last year and gave it a 7/10.

Vampire Survivors is Coming to Xbox Game Pass on May 19

First up, your Game Pass subscription must not currently be active – I repeat, you must not have an active Game Pass for this to work. Once you’re confident, proceed to the next step.

Next, you need to invest in up to 3-years worth of Xbox Live Gold. You can easily buy 12-month Xbox Live Gold codes from Amazon or other retailers, costing $60/£50 depending on your region.

Xbox Live Gold - 12 Months

I Recommend Stacking 2-Years of Xbox Live Gold

The maximum amount of stacking for Gold subscriptions is 36-months (costing $180), any more than that will be lost. So, to keep things safe for those who currently have a Gold membership, I recommend sticking to just 2-years’ worth (costing $120/£100).

Now, here’s the fun part. Once you’ve redeemed these codes and stacked your Xbox Live Gold membership up to your liking, you can then convert this time to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate at a 1:1 ratio.

Head to the Xbox Live Gold upgrade page and proceed to convert the time you’ve paid for directly into Game Pass Ultimate. If you’ve never used the upgrade feature before, this will cost $1/£1 (total cost coming to $121/£101). If you have used this before, it will instead cost you $14.99/£10.99 to upgrade.

Overall, at most, you’ll be paying only $135 for 2-years of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (instead of $359). If you manage to pull off a 3-year conversion, at most you’ll be paying $195 instead (instead of $539). Now that’s a big discount. Once you’re done, just make sure you turn off auto renewal as well.
