Microsoft has announced that the Xbox Games with Gold line-up for May 2023 includes Star Wars Episode I: Racer and Hoa.
As detailed on Xbox Wire, the two Games with Gold offerings for May will be available to anyone with Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, with Star Wars Episode I: Racer coming up first from May 1 to May 31 and Hoa up for grabs between May 16 to June 15.
Based on the iconic podracing scene from The Phantom Menace, Star Wars Episode I: Racer sees players climb aboard their favorite podracers and take charge of the controls as young Anakin Skywalker, Sebulba, and a whole host of other characters from the galaxy far, far away.
After taking an adrenaline-fuelled ride through Tatooine, you might want to soothe your mind with a trip through the beautiful world of Hoa. This puzzle platformer is one to get lost in, as it features breathtaking hand-painted art, lovely music, and a peaceful, relaxing atmosphere.
Issue 2 of IGN’s Hidden Treasures column explored Hoa and how the Ghibli-inspired platformer was born from its creators’ kindness toward nature and one another while trying to evoke the feeling of being a child again, experiencing the world with curiosity and fresh eyes.
New games approaching also means that April’s Games with Gold will soon leave the service, so be sure to download Out of Space: Couch Edition and Peaky Blinders: Mastermind before time runs out.
