Starting today, players can find themselves welcomed to Jurassic World Evolution 2, read up on Her Story on PC, and check out the brand new first-person photography game Umurangi Generation Special Edition. Today’s announcement not only hails the arrival of these games, but it notifies players of what’s coming in the weeks ahead.

The most notable of the upcoming games is Sniper Elite 5, which arrives on May 26. The next entry in the long-running third-person shooter series is all about watching bullets pierce Nazis and their internal organs. Players on PC and Xbox will be able to take control of Karl Fairburne as he teams with the French Resistance to destroy a secret Nazi project that could bring an early end to World War II. Sniper Elite 5 also features deathmatch multiplayer and a new Invasion mode where players can slip behind enemy lines and try to take out other players making their way through the campaign.

Also on the docket for May 27 is Pac-Man Museum+. This retro collection features 14 Pac-Man classics but does go without Ms. Pac-Man. Instead, players can load unlimited virtual quarters into Pac-Man Championship EditionPac-Mania, or even 2011’s Pac-Man Battle Royale. There are also rarer additions like both versions of Pac-Man Arrangement and Pac-Motos from 2007’s Namco Arcade Remix.
