Jurassic World Evolution 2 leads latest Xbox Game Pass lineup
May’s second crop of games headed to Xbox Game Pass includes Jurassic World Evolution 2, available today, plus Sniper Elite 5 and Pac-Man Museum+.
Jurassic World Evolution 2 is the dinosaur management sim sequel which adds in plenty of new features and creatures, including flying and airborne reptiles.
Developer Frontier last year admitted the game had under-performed, something it blamed on the delay of the upcoming Jurassic World Dominion movie, now due in June. Here’s hoping Xbox Game Pass gives it fresh legs.
Other games available now include PC narrative puzzler Her Story, from Telling Lies’ Sam Barlow, brand-new first-person photography sandbox Umurangi Generation Special Edition, pixellated early access game Little Witch in the Woods, plus Skate now for Xbox Cloud.
Coming soon are Farming Simulator 22 – now with mulching, greenhouses and beehives, I am informed – and the new Sniper Elite 5 – now with an enhanced kill cam, which is just lovely.
Pac-Man Museum, home to 14 of the pellet-chomping hero’s classic hits, also launches via Xbox Game Pass, alongside the addition of Cricket 22 and indie games Vampire Survivors, Floppy Knights and Hardspace: Shipbreaker.

Are some of these games headed to the newly-detailed (sort of) PlayStation Plus Premium, perhaps?
