Now, the month of May has a lot in store for gamers everywhere, and the roster is arguably on par or even better in terms of anticipation.

Without dragging on any further, here are some of the Xbox One games for May 2016 that fans wouldn't want to miss:

Release Date: May 3

Preorder: Available in Standard Edition for $59.99 and Deluxe Edition for $74.99.

Season Pass: Available for $19.99.

Release Date: May 3

Fallout 4: Far Harbor

Dubbed as the "largest landmass for an add-on," Far Harbor is the third DLC following Automatron and Wasteland Workshop for Fallout 4. Though it's technically more of a DLC than a full game, it deserves to be included in the mix, as it's one of the most anticipated releases this year.

Release Date: Sometime in May for $24.99.

Season Pass: Available as part of the $49.99 Season Pass that includes Automatron and Wasteland Workshop.

Tropico 5 - Penultimate Edition

A lot of people probably already know of the country-managing game Tropico 5, as it did get released back in 2014. Now, the Penultimate Edition is coming this year for the Xbox One, bringing in the full game, five DLC packs and five exclusive maps.

Release Date: May 24

Preorder: Available for $49.99 at Amazon.
