It’s a new month, which means Xbox Live Gold subscribers now have another free batch of games to download. Two new freebies are now available for Xbox One and Xbox 360, with another pair of titles set to follow halfway through April.
On Microsoft’s current-gen console, Gold members can now download The Witness, the acclaimed puzzle game from developer Thekla and Braid designer Jonathan Blow. On the 360 side, subscribers can grab Cars 2, the video game adaptation of the Disney/Pixar film, at no charge. The latter is also playable on Xbox One thanks to backwards compatibility.
Both The Witness and Cars 2 were actually available to download a little early this past weekend. The former will be available for free throughout the entire month, while the latter will return to its regular price on April 15. Gold members also still have a little more time to download one holdover from March’s Games with Gold: the stylish first-person shooter Superhot. That will remain free until April 16.
Two more free Xbox One and 360 games are slated to arrive on April 16. On the newer console, Gold members will be able to download Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, the 2015 installment that’s set in 19th century London. Meanwhile, EA’s horror game Dead Space 2 will be available on the 360 side. Like Cars 2, it is also backwards compatible on Xbox One. You can take a look at the full list of April’s free Games with Gold below.
