MLB The Show 21 and THQ Nordic’s remake of Destroy All Humans! headline the second wave of Xbox Game Pass titles for April 2021.
Microsoft has confirmed the second batch of titles coming to Xbox Game Pass this month. Top of the list is MLB The Show 21, which was released yesterday. The PlayStation Studios-developed baseball sim comes to Xbox One and Xbox Series X. On next-gen, it includes enhancements such as 60 FPS gameplay and a Stadium Creator mode.
Other Game Pass additions in April include Black Forest’s update of the cult 2005 action-adventure, Destroy All Humans! The original game hasn’t aged particularly well, but this is a well-made remake that brims with charm and zany humour.
Multiplayer dinosaur shooter Second Extinction also joins the Game Pass library this month, and two Fable RPGs get Cloud-play support. Here’s the full lineup.
