April 2021’s Xbox Live Games with Gold titles have been revealed
Vikings: Wolves of Midgard, Truck Racing Championship, Dark Void, and Hard Corps: Uprising
Microsoft has revealed April 2021’s Xbox Live Games with Gold titles.
On Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S, Xbox Live Gold subscribers will be able to download Vikings: Wolves of Midgard (normally $39.99/£33.49) for free throughout April.
FIA European Truck Racing Championship (normally $59.99/£39.99) will then be available as a free download from April 16 to May 15.
Xbox 360 game Dark Void (normally $14.99/£11.99) will be free for Xbox Live Gold members from April 1-15.
And from April 16 until the end of the month, Hard Corps: Uprising (normally $14.99/£9.99) will be free to download.
As part of March’s Games with Gold line-up, members can download Warface: Breakout and Port Royale 3 for free until the end of this month, while Vicious Attack Llama Apocalypse is available until April 15.
In January, Microsoft announced plans to increase the price of Xbox Live Gold before quickly reversing its decision following a backlash from players.
“We messed up today and you were right to let us know,” Microsoft said. “Connecting and playing with friends is a vital part of gaming and we failed to meet the expectations of players who count on it every day. As a result, we have decided not to change Xbox Live Gold pricing.”
The platform holder also confirmed that it would be dropping the Xbox Live Gold requirement for free-to-play online games like Warzone and Fortnite, which are available at no extra cost on rival platforms,” in the coming months”.
That change moved a step closer last week as Microsoft launched the latest beta test for Xbox Insiders, which drops the need to have a Gold subscription to play free-to-play games, and to use the Looking 4 Groups and Party Chat features.
