Xbox Games with Gold

Microsoft reveals the four free games coming to Xbox Games With Gold in April 2018.

The Games with Gold line-up for April features three genuinely excellent games, and Cars 2. Xbox One owners can look forward to losing their minds, and their patience, with Jonathan Blow’s masterful puzzle adventure, The Witness. It’s a truly majestic work, and was my game of the year in 2016.

It’s joined by a game with a thoroughly undeserved reputation, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. The game might not be as good as Origins, but don’t let the naysayers put you off. It has charming leads, a wonderful sense of place, and is by no means the low point of the Assassins Creed series


Over on Xbox 360 – and Xbox One via Backwards Compatibility – you can pick up the aforementioned Cars 2, and the excellent Dead Space 2.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. 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. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
