March is coming to a close so it’s time to start hearing about all the free games Microsoft and Sony will be tossing at their subscribers for next month. Sony unveiled some very nice games for their subscribers, but Microsoft’s selection is looking pretty solid with their announcement today. The Xbox Live Games with Gold for April 2018 are below…

Xbox One starts the month with The Witness, subbing in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate on April 16th. The Witness is the latest game from Jonathan Blow, the creator of the indie classic Braid. The game focuses on puzzle solving, delivering a Myst-like experience as players explore a mysterious island that is crammed full of interesting and unique puzzles. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate is another solid release, giving players one of the newest games in the long running action series.

The Xbox 360 will feature Cars 2: The Video Game and Dead Space 2 as its free games for the month of April 2018. Both titles will be playable via Xbox One Backward Compatibility as well, so if you only have the latest console you can still enjoy the freebies. Just download the game as normal and you should be good to go on your Xbox One.
