Microsoft announces the next wave of Xbox Game Pass games for April

Microsoft announces the next wave of Xbox Game Pass games for April

Microsoft has announced the next wave of new Xbox and PC Game Pass games.

Starting today, players will be able to get their hands on Minecraft Legends – “Pigs threaten to consume the Overworld. Are you the hero this gentle land needs?” Microsoft.

In a Minecraft Legends review, Caelyn Ellis said that while the series’ iconic “blocky charm” is present and true, she felt that the rest of the game was “only as deep as the skins it wants to sell you”. But she did like pigs.

Here’s Ian with some ideas and gameplay to show you Minecraft Legends in action.

Then, on April 20, Coffee Talk Episode 2: Hibiscus & Butterfly and Medieval Dynasty will join the service. The next day will see the addition of the enchanted farming sim Homestead Arcana.

The April game collection is rounded out with Cassette Beasts, which hits PC Game pass April 26, along with BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle Special Edition and The Last Case of Benedict Fox joining the service April 27.

While there aren’t full Game Pass listings for May yet, we do know that Bethesda’s vampire-infested shooter Redfall will also be heading to Game Pass on May 2nd. You can read more about Redfall, including the game’s policy and cut content, in Tom’s interview with creator Harvey Smith here.
