One of the very best decisions that console makers Microsoft and Sony have made, is to offer free games to those who are members of their Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus programs each month. Hundreds of dollars worth of games for free each year. It makes the pill that is having to pay to play (online) much, much easier to swallow.
The four free games being offered to Xbox Live Gold members for Games With Gold in April 2018 have been revealed, and you can see what they are below along with information on each of the four titles.
Welcome to this month’s exciting reveal of Games with Gold for April 2018! On Xbox One we’ll have the challenging puzzler and mysterious adventure of The Witness, followed by another chapter in the fantastic Assassin’s Creed series in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. And on Xbox 360 – and Xbox One thanks to Backward Compatibility – we’ll get to play the family-fun racer Cars 2: The Video Game and one of the greatest sci-fi horror games in Dead Space 2.
All games will be available exclusively for Xbox Live Gold members for a limited time as part of Games with Gold. With Xbox Live Gold, you get the most advanced multiplayer, free games, and exclusive member discounts on games in the Microsoft Store — get Xbox Live Gold today to get in on the action!
