Note: If any of the games aren't live yet, rest assured they should be at some point later on May 17th!
Her Story (PC)
You find yourself in front of a dated desktop computer, logged into a police database of live action video footage. This footage contains clips covering seven interviews from 1994 in which a British woman is interviewed about her missing husband. Explore the database by typing search terms, watch the clips where she speaks those words, and piece together her story.
Jurassic World Evolution 2 (Console, PC, Cloud)
Jurassic World Evolution 2 is the much-anticipated sequel to Frontier’s highly successful Jurassic World Evolution. This bold new era in the Jurassic World Evolution game franchise builds upon the ground-breaking and immersive 2018 management simulation.
Little Witch In The Woods (Game Preview) (Console, PC)
Little Witch in the Woods tells the story of Ellie, an apprentice witch. Explore the mystical forest, help the charming residents, and experience the daily life of the witch.
Umurangi Generation Special Edition (Console, PC, Cloud)
Umurangi Generation is a first person photography game in the retro future. Set in Tauranga Aotearoa off the back of an impending crisis you are a courier for the Tauranga Express. Throughout the game you will unlock a variety of lenses and equipment.

Wow, I've been waiting/hoping patiently for Jurassic World!!! Haven't played the first one and haven't really played games like it since Sim City 2000 but Dinosaurs!
Bought Jurassic World Evolution 2 launch day. They listened to all the feedback from the first and made is much more expansive with a stupid about of customization options. It even let's you choose three base anesthetics, OG Jurassic Park, Jurassic World, and one, I'm guessing, from the new Jurassic World movie.
If you like park sims, while not as in depth as their Planet Coaster, it is definitely worth checking out.
I loved the first one and even got the dlc for it ,I was waiting for a decent sale for this one but won't have to now ,nice Ty Xbox
@TJ81 Cities Skylines in worth a go. Amazing game, the base game will keep you gaming for maybe 60-65 hours and it has some ok dlc to extend the experience.
@themcnoisy I have that in my backlog from PS Plus. Might have to do both simultaneously!
Was waiting patiently for Jurassic World. That's my sim/management itch scratched until Two Point Campus.
Love a good shadow drop
When will it be ready to play at UK Jurassic 2 on Gamepass, it not there yet ?
Nice! Was just about to buy JP 2 .
@Cyberpunk1964 No word yet unfortunately, all we know is that it's coming today according to Xbox on Twitter.
Umurangi Generation Special Edition has a pretty unique aesthetic, might have to give that a go just to soak it up
Her Story added to the lineup! PC only it seems.
Oh nice! I enjoyed the hell put of the first one when it was games with gold, looks like I have found my next pallet cleanse between massive time sinks glares at valhalla
I’ll give that a go, I enjoyed the first one. I found it most enjoyable to improve the park, keep the animals and visitors happy etc., but the darn game kept sending storms to knock the fences down!
Played Her Story on a flight a few months ago and it is wonderful. Definitely one that keeps you thinking about it long after the event. Shame it's PC only.
Wow! Did not expect Jurassic World Evo 2 to come on Game Pass. I've been watching videos and reading reviews for a while. Seems it has it's issues and not as in-depth as I'd like so I've been holding off for it to come down in price. So delighted it's on Game Pass!
