Xbox Game Pass titles for May revealed - Final Fantasy IX, Red Dead Redemption 2, and more

By Sean Carey,
Xbox has announced some new additions to Xbox Game Pass for console. Final Fantasy IX, DayZ, Fractured Minds and (one we already knew about) Red Dead Redemption 2 will all be added to the service shortly.

May 7th

DayZ

DayZ

Two games are set to join the service on May 7th: DayZ and Red Dead Redemption 2. The only goal in DayZ is to stay alive for as long as you can. This means looting, taking down zombies and ambushing other players. Up to 60 players can jump into a server, and when every decision counts, things can get a little cagey. For a full DayZ completion, you're looking at around 25-30 hours.

Red Dead Redemption 2

Red Dead Redemption 2

We all knew this one was coming to Xbox Game Pass, and it needs no introduction. Red Dead Redemption 2 is one of Rockstar's finest games that will have you following the story of Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang. The open-world adventure game is a beast of a completion taking well over 200 hours. There's also a number of Red Dead Online achievements tucked away in its list, so bear that in mind before starting it if you haven't already done so.

May 14th

Final Fantasy IX Achievements

Final Fantasy IX

Back at X019, Xbox announced that most of the Final Fantasy series would be coming to Xbox Game Pass. Final Fantasy XV was the first to join the service; now it's time for another. Final Fantasy IX will join the service on May 14th. It's another big completion which will take anywhere between 80-100 hours to complete.

May 19th

Fractured Minds

Fractured Minds

Fractured Minds comes to Xbox Game Pass on May 19th. The game explores anxiety and mental health issues which has players journeying through the human psyche. Fractured Minds is a pretty short game and should take you less than an hour to unlock all the achievements.

As previously announced, the following games will be leaving Xbox Game Pass soon:
