Games with Gold Springs Into April

It’s April 1 and—no fooling—time for another month of free Xbox games for those with Xbox Live Gold memberships.

Reminder: All Xbox 360 games in the Games for Gold promotion also work in Xbox One in Backward Compatibility mode too. So Xbox One users with Xbox Live Gold subscriptions are technically getting at least four free games each month.

Here’s what’s new for April.
