Gold members of Xbox Live, heads up! Microsoft has just recently announced the games that will go with the membership for the following month. April 2016’s lineup will include two Xbox One games, namely The Wolf Among Us and Sunset Overdrive. There are also two Xbox 360 titles that are thrown into the mix which are Dead Space and Saints Row IV. As an added bonus, both Xbox 360 games are backwards compatible with the Xbox One. Meaning, Xbox One owners actually get four games next month, absolutely free.
Xbox Live Gold Members Get New Xbox One and 360 Games Next Month
Xbox Live members, specifically those that have the Gold membership, are able to download The World Among Us for free at any point during April 2016. As for Sunset Overdrive, it is available for download starting April 16 but only until May 15. Users are able to download Dead Space for free until April 15 and Saints Row IV will be free for download from April 16 to April 30.
For those who haven’t played these titles yet, and you’re an Xbox Live Gold Member, then here’s your chance to try them out. The Wolf Among Us is a point-and-click adventure videogame that is canonical to its prequels which are Bill Willingham’s popular Fables comic book titles. Sunset Overdrive is from developer Insomniac and it is an open-world game that is set in Sunset City. The Wolf Among Us has a very engaging narrative while Sunset Overdrive has a funny and well-defined story.
In other news concerning the current generation console from Microsoft, Xbox One recently started rolling out its latest system update. Said update will include all the features that were announced earlier this month, as well as the ability to purchase Xbox 360 titles right from the Xbox One. You are able to find and buy the Xbox 360 titles that are already backwards-compatible in the same way that you can search for Xbox One titles.
Along with the better way to search for backwards compatible games, the update also lets 16 people do Party Chats using the Xbox One and the Xbox app. The chat lets Xbox One and Xbox 360 players connect with each other with the use of said app.
Xbox Live gold members have something to be happy this April and it’s not an April Fool’s joke either. Those who are not subscribed to the gold membership yet can do so to get in on the action.
