The Xbox Game Pass is undoubtedly an amazing subscription service, which includes several Bethesda games. With an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription or Xbox Live Gold, subscribers can get even more free games with the monthly Games with Gold offerings. Microsoft has now revealed the May 2021 Games with Gold free games lineup, and just like with the April 2021 lineup, it is quite the decent batch of freebies.

Those with an active Xbox Live Gold subscription (or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate as Live is included) can claim a total of four free games in May.

Two of these free games are for Xbox One / Xbox Series consoles, and the other two are oldies for Xbox 360, which those on current-gen consoles can still play via Backwards Compatibility. 

The lineup was announced via the official Xbox Wire website.

According to Microsoft, these free games in the Games with Gold May 2021 lineup are worth nearly $80 USD.

The entire batch doesn't release all at once. Check out the release schedule as well as links to the Microsoft Store page below.

Games with Gold May 2021:

  • Armello - Available from 1st to 31st May 2021
  • Dungeons 3 - Available from 16th May to 15th June 2021
  • LEGO Batman - Available from 1st to 15th May 2021.

Keep in mind that if you claim these titles during the dates as outlined above, you will keep them forever, even if your Xbox Live Gold subscription runs out.

Arguably the best two titles in the lineup, unless you really love LEGO games, is Dungeons 3 and Armello, so don't forget to download these titles for free once they become available.
