It’s that time again to find out what Microsoft has in store for Xbox Live Gold members with the April 2019 Games with Gold offerings.

As always, the Xbox 360/original Xbox games below are Backward Compatible on the Xbox One once they’re available on their respective dates.
Without further ado, let’s check out what Xbox is offering Xbox Live Gold members in April!
Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 – Xbox One
March 16 – April 15 (32.19 GB)
The battle for suburbia grows to crazy new heights in Plants vs. Zombies™ Garden Warfare 2! In this hilarious, action-packed shooter, zombie leader Dr. Zomboss has strengthened his horde and rebuilt suburbia as a zombie utopia. But hope remains, because for the first time the plants are taking the offensive in an all-out attack to reclaim their turf. Play as both the plants and zombies in new 24 player multiplayer and 4-player co-op modes, or go at it solo or in split-screen against the AI across all game modes. Garden Warfare 2 also introduces the Backyard Battleground, your very own interactive hub where you and up to 3 friends can take on daily quests, challenges, and interact with your favorite PvZ characters.
The Technomancer – Xbox One
April 1 – 30 (7.23 GB)
The Technomancer takes you to Mars, where you live as a mage-warrior. You’re capable of harnessing destructive electrical powers amplified by cybernetic implants. Feared and respected by all, you are on the verge of completing your initiation rite to become a fully-fledged Technomancer.
This action-RPG offers four different combat skill trees focusing on three distinct fighting styles, as well as the potent electrical powers. Of course, brute strength is not suited to every situation. Dynamic conversations play a major part in questing, and your decisions will dramatically alter the story and world. You can also craft equipment, weapons and armor for yourself and any companions you recruit along the way.
Undertake an adventure through forgotten paradises, lost cities under ice, and dystopian shanty towns that sprawl across Mars’ dusty embrace. Will you survive long enough to uncover the truth behind The Technomancer?

Make the right choices in this living world and its ecosystem, because the destiny of these two universes depends on your success.
