The April free games line for Xbox Live Gold subscribers does not offer any recent heavy hits on Xbox One, but the kick-off games on Xbox 360 and the original Xbox are the highlights of the list.
During the first half of the month, Star Wars: Battlefront 2 – The 2005 Xbox shooter from now-defunct Pandemic Studios and LucasArts – will be available for free via Xbox Games With Gold. Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 by Tom Clancy, which was originally released in 2007 on Xbox 360, will be the free game from April 16 to 30. Both will be playable on Xbox One through backward compatibility.
Speaking of Xbox One, the first free game will be the 2016 The technomancer, a sci-fi RPG from French studio Spiders. It will be available throughout the month for Gold subscribers. Pariah – second contact, a 2017 remake of a 1999 cult classic by Belgian developer Appeal, will be free from April 16 to May 15.
Meanwhile, Gold members can still pick up some of the March games.
