There are vampires, there are cult classics, and there are different subgenres of RPGs as part of the first wave of Xbox Game Pass titles for May. Of course, Redfall is the big one, as the first-party game comes from developer Arkane under Bethesda.
Unfortunately, GameSpot’s Redfall review notes that it feels like a “game that should not have been released yet.” The FPS sees players going in alone or with friends to defang vampires and their followers. But it seems as though a litany of bugs and undeveloped loot system hamper the title.

Per Xbox Wire, the other two day-one releases for Xbox Game Pass to start the month are Ravenlok on May 4 and Fuga: Melodies of Steel 2 on May 11. The former sees you fighting with a sword and spells in a 3D action game, while the former is a turn-based RPG.
Shadowrun Trilogy will arrive on the subscription service for PC owners on May 9. This trio of tactical RPGs are cult classics these days and the collection comes from Paradox Interactive. They are already available on Xbox consoles and cloud via Game Pass.
Rounding out the list is Weird West: Definitive Edition for Xbox Series X|S, which coincidentally comes from former creative leads of Dishonored and Prey (previous Arkane games). Microsoft also reminds subscribers that Quantum Break has returned to Xbox Game Pass after a brief hiatus.
There also are five titles leaving Xbox Game Pass on May 15, such as Her Story. Below is the list of upcoming additions to the subscription service:
