We got your triple-A right here
A common complaint of the Xbox Games with Gold and PlayStation Plus programs is that the monthly freebies are never both high profile and recent releases. Usually, they’re either relatively new indie games or big titles that have been long forgotten. For instance, Xbox gave away Gears of War 2 in February — a great shooter, sure — but, one that was seven years old at the time.
April’s Games with Gold bucks this trend and includes a gem from holiday 2014 that was overlooked by many. Insomniac’s Sunset Overdrive will be free for Xbox Live Gold subscribers from April 16 through May 15. The colorful, action-packed movement shooter is one of the better exclusives on the Xbox One to this day.
To kick off the month, Telltale Games’ A Wolf Among Us is the first Xbox One free game. For my money, it’s the second best Telltale title, right behind Tales from the Borderlands. A Wolf Among Us is gratis for the entirety of April.
Then, on the Xbox 360 side of things, it’s Dead Space for the first half of the month, and Saints Row IV for the latter half. Both quality games, for sure. Keep in mind that playing the Xbox 360 picks won’t require booting up that console anymore; all Xbox 360 Games with Gold titles are available on the Xbox One backward compatibility program.
