Xbox Game Pass: will these be the free games of the first half of April?

Xbox Game Pass

Xbox Game Pass usually gives us even very thick titles month by month, leaving all subscribers with the curiosity to know which products they will be able to enjoy in the following days. Once again we will find some excellent titles in the first half of April, among which we also have a couple of games on day one.

The games have already been anticipated a few hours ago by a character who is certainly not new to most: we are talking about billbil-kun, our beloved neighborhood leaker who has been dropping bombs of no small importance for months now, such as having revealed ahead of time the free PS Plus games of April, which turned out to be true, like the vast majority of all his leaks and even today's leaks.

In short, for this first half of April the Xbox Game Pass offers us some very interesting titles, especially for Life is Strange True Colors, the latest chapter of the famous Square Enix trilogy, and Lost in Random, an interesting gothic adventure. What do you think of these interesting titles? If you are not particularly enthusiastic about it, we remind you that in the coming weeks the free games of the second half of April will also arrive.

Xbox Game Pass April lineup leads off with a heavy hitter

Microsoft has revealed its Xbox Game Pass lineup for April, and it includes some big games. The list includes some new day-and-date releases and 2021 hidden gems.

Perhaps most notable among this month’s offerings is MLB The Show 22, which is available beginning today, April 5. This yearly baseball sim is a Sony-developed and published title that has historically existed solely on PlayStation consoles, making it a bit surprising as a Day One addition to Microsoft’s subscription service. What this means for the future is uncertain, but it’s an interesting step in a new direction for Sony and Microsoft’s relationship.

Another massive title landing on the service in April is Life is Strange: True Colors, the latest sequel in Square-Enix’s narrative-based exploration franchise. Although it was a bit polarizing with critics overall, it was praised for eschewing the series’ typical staggered chapter release format in favor of a more cohesive experience, and it’s worth checking out for fans of emotionally-charged tales.

Here’s the full list of April’s Game Pass games.

  • Cricket 22 (Cloud/Console) – April 5
  • MLB The Show 22 (Cloud/Console) – April 5
  • Chinatown Detective Agency (Cloud/Console/PC) – April 7
  • Dragon Age 2 (Cloud via EA Play) – April 7
  • Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare (Cloud via EA Play) – April 7
  • Star Wars: Squadrons (Cloud via EA Play) – April 7
  • Life is Strange: True Colors (Cloud/Console/PC) – April 12
  • Panzer Corps 2 (PC) – April 12
  • The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk (PC) – April 12
  • Lost in Random (Cloud/Console/PC via EA Play) – April 14
  • Unfortunately, every month also brings with it a few losses, and this one’s no different. Game Pass will be losing F1 2019, MLB The Show 21, Pathway, Rain on Your Parade, and The Long Dark throughout the month. If you’re wanting to check any of those out, you have until April 15 for all of them except F1 2019, which will exit the service on April 18.
