After a couple of updates throughout March, the Xbox Game Pass April update sees six games joining the service, headlined by Monster Hunter: World and Prey. Without further ado, the games coming to Xbox Game Pass in April include:
- The Golf Club 2 (April 11)
- Prey (April 11)
- Monster Hunter: World (April 18)
- The Walking Dead: A New Frontier (April 18)
- Life is Strange 2: Episode 2 (April 24)
- Resident Evil 5 (April 25)
As you can see, two of the games drop yesterday with the other four coming later this month. While only six games have been announced, Xbox has a habit of adding more throughout the month. Still, the two big titles being added this month should keep you busy for more than a few hours, that’s for sure. As well, you can save on purchasing the full game and/or any applicable DLC for Xbox Game Pass games.
In case you missed it, there are ten games leaving Xbox Game Pass in May as well, so you might want to get through those first. Without further ado, here’s more information on the games coming to the subscription game service this month.
