Microsoft has announced May’s Xbox Games with Gold lineup.
The draw here is Star Wars Episode I Racer, available May 1 through 31. This is Aspyr Media’s remaster of the popular 1999 PC and N64 original. It takes the podracing sequence from The Phantom Menace and turns it into a rock-solid arcade racer, with familiar characters and tracks set in the likes of Tatooine and Baronda.
Meanwhile, the HOA is available from May 16 through June 15. It is a 2021 puzzle-platformer that features hand-painted art, cute music, and a peaceful, relaxing atmosphere.
Games with Gold Games are available to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Xbox Live Gold members.
