The latest games being made available through Xbox Games With Gold have been announced for the month of April, and they consist of a few must-haves for Xbox users. Paying a monthly or annual fee for access to the Xbox's online portion can be a little taxing at times, but the freebies that accompany the subscription help to justify the cost. There have been some awesome games released as part of the service in previous months, with Xbox Games With Gold in March offering a decent lineup.
Last month Xbox One gamers were treated to Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 and Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion, but one of the more interesting additions came in the form of Star Wars Republic Commando which originally released on the first Xbox console. Oddly enough, Games With Gold for February featured Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy. It now appears as if a trend has been established, because yet another Star Wars title is joining April 2019's lineup.
Through Xbox Wire, Microsoft unveiled April 2019's Games With Gold lineup. The entire list of titles can be found below:
- The Technomancer: Available April 1 to 30 on Xbox One
- Outcast: Second Contact: Available April 16 to May 15 on Xbox One
- Star Wars Battlefront II: Available April 1 to 15 on Xbox One and Xbox 360
- Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2: Available April 16 to 31 on Xbox One and Xbox 360
In total, the value of the free games arriving through Games With Gold in April 2019 are worth an estimated $109.96 ERP. Setting aside the return of the original Star Wars Battlefront II, however, there really isn't much for fans to look forward to this month. Hopefully, May will bring with it a slew of must-have titles when those games are inevitably announced, but for now, gamers will have to make do with what they're being given.
Microsoft is making some noteworthy moves outside of Games With Gold freebies, though. Xbox Games Pass is one such initiative that may actually be taking away from the offerings through this service every month, since Microsoft is busy building its lineup on that platform. Meanwhile, the company has also begun helping to bring games to Nintendo's platforms, with the publisher assisting the transition of Cuphead to the Nintendo Switch.
