Xbox has announced which games are coming to Game Pass in April. While the last few updates to Game Pass have been a bit sparse, this update promises a few new titles and a brand new launch day release: Minecraft Legends. Xbox users can also play the former PlayStation console exclusive title Ghostwire Tokyo more than a year after launch.
The first addition to Game Pass is a card-based endless RPG Loop Hero, launching on the platform today. Subscribers will have access to the Tower Defense game Iron Brigade later this week. Next week, the aforementioned action-adventure game Ghostwire Tokyo will join the platform, as will the hockey game NHL 23 for EA Play/Game Pass Ultimate subscribers. Finally, the upcoming strategy game Minecraft Legends joins Game Pass on April 18, launch day.
Game Pass struggled a bit in early 2023, with fewer games added to the service than removed. Recently, eagle-eyed users saw that Quantum Break, exclusive to the Xbox console, was on the list of games leaving the service. However, Xbox executive Aaron Greenberg confirmed on Twitter that this is temporary while the developer renews expired licenses used in the game.
As for the games that Are Leaving Game Pass on April 15, they include Life is Strange: True Colors, Moonglow Bay, Panzer Corps II, Rainbow Six Extraction, The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk, The Long Dark, and The Riftbreaker.
