The first wave of Xbox Game Pass titles for April 2022 includes Life is Strange: True Colors, MLB The Show 2022, and Lost in Random.
Deck Nine’s Life is Strange: True Colors is the most notable of this month’s Xbox Game Pass additions. It’s a stunning return to form for the franchise. In our review we praised the game’s characters, performances, and evocative sense of place.
Another highlight is Chinatown Detective Agency, the new “cybernoir” point-and-click adventure from General Interactive. Hopefully, the story and mechanics are as appealing as the game’s sublime pixel art visuals.
Fans of hitting balls with bats can also choose between Cricket 22 and MLB The Show 2022. Both games aim to stimulate their respective sports in exhilarating detail.
Here’s the complete list of confirmed Xbox Game Pass titles for April 2022. Another selection of games will be announced in a fortnight.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. But it's hard to do that in the current financial climate. If you'd like to help us fund these aims, you could always buy the team a cup of coffee.
