Four more games are coming to subscribers in what must be one of the best Games With Gold offerings yet.
Since its launch years ago, Xbox Live’s Games With Gold program has provided Gold subscribers a mixed bag of games. Sure, gems like Sunset Overdrive and Assassin’s Creed III have been given out, but there’s also been quite a few stinkers. This month, though, Games With Gold is at its very best providing a great puzzler, a gritty horror title, a decent Assassin’s Creed entry… and Cars 2. Check it out:
Easily my favorite game on offer for Gold subscribers in April is The Witness. With genius puzzle design and a gorgeous but mysterious setting, it was one of my favorite games of 2016. Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, the follow up to Assassin’s Creed Unity, runs a whole heck of a lot better than its notoriously-meme’d predecessor. It might not be the triumph of last year’s Assassin’s Creed Origins, but Syndicate is still a solid offering for those who skipped out on the release back in 2015.
Keep in mind both Xbox 360 games coming next month will be fully playable on Xbox One via the backwards compatibility program.
