May’s Xbox Games With Gold Have Been Announced

Xbox has announced the Xbox Games With Gold line up for May 2023.

After last month brough us Out of Space: Couch Edition and Peaky Blinders: Mastermind, May is granting a couple of decent little title. Firstly, and appropriately given today’s release of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor as well as the advent of May 4th next week, is the modern port of Star Wars Episode 1 Racer. Following that we get the gorgeous puzzle-platformer, Hoa.


  • Star Wars Episode I Racer: Available May 1 to 31
  • Hoa: Available May 16 to June 15

Star Wars Episode I Racer

The classic racer is back with modernized controls and achievements!

Climb on and strap in for some old-school “Star Wars Episode I” podracing action. Play as young Anakin Skywalker or any of the over twenty-one podracers. Fire up your two massive jet engines and rev up to 600 MPH as you race by and over flaming methane lakes, through meteor showers, past Tusken Raiders, and more. May the Force be with you!
