As I’m writing this, it’s the last workday in April. That means that Xbox has waited until the last minute to share its free Games with Gold for the upcoming month of May.

As always, Xbox is offering up four free games for gamers with an active Xbox Live Gold subscription. And remember, if you have an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription, you get Xbox Live Gold for free. So you, too, can snag these free games over the course of the month.

Xbox is sticking to tradition this month with an offering that includes two current or last-gen games alongside a couple of retro options from older consoles.

Next up, you can snag The Inner World – The Last Wind Monk, a charming adventure game that lets you take on the role of one of three different characters as you travel across a world called Asposa on a quest to fulfill your destiny.

And kicking off the classic lineup for this month, Xbox is offering another game with its roots deeply seated in old-school arcades. Hydro Thunder Hurricane is a high-octane boat racing game filled with epic jumps and secret shortcuts.
