Xbox Live Gold subscribers wait every month to find out which games they will receive for free as part of their subscription. Microsoft always confirms the coming month’s lineup towards the end of the current month and it has done that today as well. The company has announced the Xbox Games with Gold for April 2017 lineup for Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
Subscribers will receive four new games next month, two each for the Xbox One and Xbox 360. Since the Xbox 360 titles are backward compatible, this means that Xbox One owners actually get four free titles.
Xbox One owners who subscribe to Xbox Live Gold will be able to download the $19.99 Ryse: Son of Rome for free throughout the month of April. From April 16th to May 15th they can download The Walking Dead: Season 2 for free.
Those who have the Xbox 360 will be able to download the $19.99 Darksiders title through April 15th. Starting April 16th, they can download the similarly priced Assassin’s Creed Revelations for free through April 30th.
As previously mentioned, the Xbox 360 titles are backward compatible, so Xbox One owners who subscribe to Xbox Live Gold can also download Darksiders and Assassin’s Creed Revelations for free during the period mentioned above.
