Microsoft usually announce their new roster of free titles around the 20th of every month.
However, we still don’t know what’s going to be included in the official Games with Gold April 2018 lineup of titles.
Microsoft were expected to drop the big news earlier this week, around the usual time.
And while we learnt a great deal about the tech giant’s latest release – Sea of Thieves – no Xbox free games announcement was made.
So it seems very likely that Microsoft will reveal the big news in the next few days.
As usual, this will mean two free Xbox One and two free Xbox 360 games to download.
All are playable on the Xbox One and Xbox One X, due to Microsoft’s Backwards Compatibility program.
Some months have seen top 360 classics help bolster the lineup, with a lot of great games to choose from.
We still don’t know what will be included, or what other bonuses Microsoft might look to include.
There have been no leaks or early reveals, so it’s hard to gauge just what kind of Xbox One games will be included.
The only thing we do know is that March’s SuperHot will remain available until April 15, when it will be replaced by a new title.
But whatever is revealed, fans will be hoping for some top AAA titles to be available next month.
Sony easily took the crown for their PS Plus lineup in March – offering fans the chance to add Bloodborne and Ratchet & Clank to their digital libraries.
It’s unclear if Microsoft have any plans to retaliate with a few exclusives of their own, so it’ll be worth keeping an eye on the official Xbox channels in the coming days.
Xbox’s Larry Hryb is the person who usually breaks the news, so expect an announcement from him early this week.
For those who don’t know, Games with Gold offers free Xbox games to qualifying Xbox Live Gold members.
The program provides Gold members with free games every month, worth up to $700 per year, according to Microsoft.
Games with Gold is available to all Xbox Live Gold members, which can be redeemed from the Gold widget on the Xbox One home screen.
Titles can also be found if you download the Xbox One SmartGlass app, and go to the Microsoft Store and then page right.
When you select a game, it’ll be stored in your account and ready for download when you sign in to your console.
It should also be noted that new Games with Gold titles become available on the first and the sixteenth day of every month.
The current Games with Gold March 2018 lineup includes:
- Trials of the Blood Dragon: Available March 1 to 30 on Xbox One
- Superhot: Available March 16 to April 15 on Xbox One
- Quantum Conundrum: Available March 16 to 31 on Xbox One and Xbox 360
