What are Xbox Game Pass Quests?

Xbox Game Pass Quests is a branch of Microsoft Rewards that allows you to earn redeemable points by completing various Xbox and Game Pass related objectives.

State of Decay: Year One Survival Edition - Kill 11 Zombies (Monthly Quest)

Xbox Game Pass Quests May 2021 State Of Decay Year One

This Quest is having some issues tracking at the moment, so you might struggle!

Here's a guide for it courtesy of LinkedTortoise over at True Achievements:

"I just got this in the tutorial. I installed it from the gamepass app, so it was from that one. Started the game, ignored the main quest (which was go to the ranger station) and just started smacking all the zombies I saw until my stick broke. Then I just had to punch one more for it to proc.

No achievements unlocked for me. Likely because I ignored the quest."

The Evil Within - Kill 3 Enemies (Monthly Quest)

Xbox Game Pass Quests May 2021 The Evil Within

This is the most time consuming of this month's quests, but there's a way of speeding things up by killing an enemy, leaving the game and then reloading the second chapter.

Here's a guide for it courtesy of SPEND628 over at True Achievements:

"Can be done on ready to play. I started a new game on casual and played through the first chapter, skipping cutscenes. After starting chapter 2, remnants, play through till you get the gun and kill your first enemy. The game saves after you kill him so just reload the start of the chapter and play up till that point again. Only took about 30 minutes and no achievements unlocked."
