The first wave of Xbox Game Pass additions for May 2024 have been revealed, with a handful of strong inclusions – including Little Kitty, Big City, a new game from indie studio Double Dagger Studio, which follows a young cat trying to find their way back home.

Joining this wholesome adventure is modern classic Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, as well as Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons (the original version, not the remake), narrative adventure Kona 2: Brume, and Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, via EA Play. While the list of new arrivals is fairly short to kick off the month, the offerings are strong – and having a day one launch for an anticipated new game is always welcome.

Xbox Game Pass removals in May 2024

The following games are departing Xbox Game Pass on 15 May 2024:

  • Eastern Exorcist
  • Eiyuden Chronicle Rising
  • Fuga: Melodies of Steel 2
  • Ghostlore
  • Just Cause 4 Reloaded
  • Norco
  • SD Gundam Battle Alliance
  • Supraland Six Inches Under

Of the games departing, we’d absolutely recommend checking out Norco before it’s gone. In a review for GamesHub, critic Nicholas Kennedy called it “confident, biographical and bewildering … a narrative experience filled with exquisite, beautiful details.” It’s well worth experiencing for yourself, whether through Xbox Game Pass, or even after it’s departed the subscription platform.
