The Xbox Games with Gold program has had its fair share of hits and misses. Things started looking up in March with games like Lords of the Fallen and Borderlands being made free for Xbox Live Gold members. It looks like Microsoft has knocked it out of the park with the April Games With Gold list which sees two more free games for the Xbox One and two Xbox 360 Backward Compatibility titles for Xbox Live Gold members.
Let’s check out what Xbox Live Gold members can snag for free in the month of April, and don’t forget to grab March’s Games With Gold before they disappear!
The Wolf Among Us – Xbox One

Based on the award-winning Fables comic book series by Bill Willingham (published by DC Comics’ Vertigo imprint), The Wolf Among Us is a dark, often brutally violent, and mature take on the characters and creatures of fairytale and legend. A five episode series from the creators of the 2012 Game of the Year: The Walking Dead, the player will experience what it’s like to be Bigby Wolf (THE Big Bad Wolf), Sheriff of Fabletown.
Sunset Overdrive – Xbox One

In Sunset Overdrive, the year is 2027 and Sunset City is under siege. A contaminated energy drink has transformed most of the population into toxic mutants. For many it’s the end of the world, but for you it’s a dream come true. Your old boss? Dead. Your boring job? Gone. Transform the open-world into your tactical playground by grinding, vaulting and wall-running across the city while using a devastating, unconventional arsenal. With hyper-agility, unique weapons, and customizable special abilities, Sunset Overdrive rewrites the rules of traditional shooters and delivers an explosive, irreverent, stylish, and totally unique adventure exclusively to Xbox One.
Dead Space – Xbox 360

When an immense mining ship, the USG Ishimura, comes into contact with a mysterious alien artifact in a remote star system, its communications with Earth are mysteriously cut off. Engineer Isaac Clarke is sent to repair the Ishimura’s communications array, but he arrives to find a living nightmare-the ship is a floating bloodbath, the crew unspeakably mutilated and infected by an ancient alien scourge. Clarke’s repair mission becomes one of survival as he fights not just to save himself, but to return the artifact to the planet … at any cost.
