Microsoft has revealed the lineup of games available to Xbox Live Gold subscribers for May 2018.
First on the list is Super Mega Baseball 2 for the Xbox One, which releases on May 1 and will be available for Xbox Live Gold subscribers. Super Mega Baseball 2, developed by Metalhead and will be a more “sophisticated baseball simulation” compared to its predecessor and is designed for “baseball purists.” Metalhead also reassured fans that Super Mega Baseball 2, will retain the “pick-up-and-play” feature that made the first game famous. Super Mega Baseball 2 will be free to all Xbox Live Gold subscribers for the entire month of May.
Next up on the roster is Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain for the Xbox One, which serves as the final game in the franchise by creator Hideo Kojima. The game mixes action and stealth elements in an open world environment encouraging players to strategize their progress on their own but also experiencing a classic Kojima story. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be free to Xbox Live Gold subscribers starting May 16 until June 15.
Check out the entire list of free games you can get with your subscription for May:

However, the timing for the announcement for this month’s lineup of free games is earlier than expected. It is possible that the release of the video, posted above, was published earlier than Microsoft intended. The list is most likely final, but Microsoft can always change them at the last minute
