We’re coming up on the halfway point of the month, which means two of April’s free Games with Gold will be going back to their regular price. Time’s running out to grab them for free, so make sure to hit that download button before the sun sets on April 15.
On Xbox One, the holdover from March’s Games With Gold is Superhot, the inventive shooter in which time only moves when your character moves. It’s still available for free through April 15. Over on Xbox 360, Cars 2 will go back to its regular price the same day. As a reminder, you can play all Xbox 360 games on your Xbox One, thanks to the magic of backwards compatibility.
Though it’s a bummer to see those two games go, we can look forward to downloading two new free games starting April 16. And they’re particularly great games, too. On Xbox One, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate joins Games with Gold; it will be free until May 15. The Xbox 360 game going free on April 16 is the fantastic horror shooter Dead Space 2. It will be free through April 30, and will also be playable on Xbox One. Also, The Witness is free throughout all of April.
You can find the full list of April’s free Games with Gold below. And if you’re looking to save money on other games, check out the Xbox One games that are currently on sale, including Kingdom Come: Deliverance, Ghost Recon Wildlands, and Halo 5: Guardians.
