May’s Xbox Games with Gold include Episode 1 Racer
Subscribers can also claim puzzle platformer Hoa next month
Microsoft has announced May 2023’s Xbox Live Games with Gold titles.
Subscribers can claim Star Wars Episode 1 Racer (available May 1 – 31) and puzzle-platformer Hoa (available May 16 – June 15), Xbox revealed on Thursday.
“Play as young Anakin Skywalker or any of the over twenty-one podracers,” the platform holder says of Episode 1 Racer. “Fire up your two massive jet engines and rev up to 600 MPH as you race by and over flaming methane lakes, through meteor showers, past Tusken Raiders, and more.”
Meanwhile, Hoa sees players “travel through the beautiful, mythologically inspired world of Hoa… This is a soothing, meditative puzzle-platformer which will utterly charm you with hand-painted art and a beautiful score. Lose yourself in the little wonders.”
April’s Xbox Live Games with Gold are still available to redeem for a brief period of time.
Co-op strategy game Out of Space: Couch Edition is available to redeem until April 30, puzzle adventure Peaky Blinders: Mastermind, based on the BBC TV show, will be available until May 15.
Xbox Games with Gold titles can be redeemed by anyone with an Xbox Live Gold account, or an Xbox Game Pass account (which includes a Gold subscription).
Once a game is redeemed, players can continue to play it for as long as they like – even once it’s removed from Games with Gold – as long as they remain subscribed.
