Microsoft has just announced its May 2021 lineup of Games with Gold, a subscription-based service for Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One users in which digital downloads of games are offered at no extra charge to subscribers.
In May, Xbox Live Gold members will be able to claim the throne in Armello, and uprise and take over the overworld in Dungeons 3. Additionally, gamers will be able to fight crime in Lego Batman, and rule and manage their island nation in Tropico 4.
Armello (Available May 1 to 31)
A grim fairytale board game comes to life, this swashbuckling adventure brings together the deep tactics of card games and the rich strategy of tabletop games, all combined into a character-building RPG. As the hero, you’ll wage epic battles, explore the vast kingdom, cast spells, and vanquish monsters, all with the ultimate goal of becoming the next King or Queen of Armello.
Dungeons 3 (Available May 16 to June 15)
Help the Dungeon Lord succeed in conquest in this dungeon building, real time strategy game. Head the frontlines under the guidance of his chief lieutenant, the dark elf Thalya, and command the most terrifying army the world has ever seen. Choose among orcs, succubae, zombies, and more.
Lego Batman (Available May 1 to 15)
He is vengeance… He is the night… He is Lego Batman. Build, drive, swing, and fight your way through Gotham as the caped crusader and his sidekick, Robin. And, in a gameplay twist, play as the villains in story mode and help in their nefarious plans to take over the city.
Tropico 4 (Available May 16 to 31)
As El Presidente, the ruler of your small island nation, it is your job to gain the support of the people, negotiate with foreign superpowers, and even deal with any natural disasters which threaten your country. Test your political mettle and remember that everyone has an agenda, so while it’s good to keep your friends close, it’s better to keep your enemies closer.
