Games with Gold May 2023: Star Wars Episode 1 Racer and Hoa

Robert Collins

The Games with Gold May 2023 lineup has been announced. The two games on offer for the coming month present two very different aesthetics and gaming experiences. Note that to have access to the monthly free Games with Gold games you need to be a subscriber of Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. Without further ado, let’s check them out down below.

Star Wars Episode 1 Racer

The classic racer is back with modernized controls and achievements!

Take control of a podracer speeding through flaming methane lakes, Tusken Raider assaults, anti-gravity tunnels, and much more in a pulse-pounding, do-or-die fight to the finish line.

STAR WARS™ Episode I Racer


Hoa is a beautiful puzzle-platforming game that features breathtaking hand-painted art, lovely music, and a peaceful, relaxing atmosphere. Experience the magic of nature and imagination as you play the main character, Hoa, on her journey through breathtaking environments back to where it all began.


What’s your take on the Games with Gold May 2023 games?

It’s been around seven months since Xbox made the decision to remove Xbox 360 titles from the monthly free Games with Gold program. By now most gamers have adjusted to this change. But with that said, what do you think of this month’s lineup, and the Games with Gold program in general? Feel free to share your thoughts down in the comments section.
