Xbox Games With Gold Reveals April's Free Games

Microsoft has revealed the free games Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S users subscribed to Games With Gold will get for the month of April 2021. Like last month, and many before it, Xbox Live Gold subscribers are getting four games, and in this case, it's two Xbox One games and two Xbox 360 games. Unfortunately, there are still no Xbox Series X/S games on offer, but all four games are playable on both machines thanks to backward compatibility.

As always, these games will be available for free at different times, with the first two going free on April 1. According to Microsoft, this month's offering includes $130 worth of games, but that's assuming you're playing the full asking price for the games below, which nobody is doing in 2021.

Below, you can read more about each game, courtesy of Xbox:
