Xbox has announced which games will be coming Game pass in April. While recent Game Pass updates have been a bit sparse, this update promises a few new titles as well as 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 its launch.
The first addition to Game Pass is the endless card-based RPG Loop Hero, which launches on the platform today. Subscribers can access the Iron Brigade tower defense game later this week. Next week, the aforementioned action-adventure game Ghostwire Tokyo will join the platform, as will the hocky game NHL 23 for EA Play/Game Pass Ultimate subscribers. Finally, the next strategy game Minecraft Legends joins Game Pass on April 18, when it launches.
Game Pass struggled a bit at the start of 2023, adding fewer games to the service than it removed. Recently, eagle-eyed users noticed that Xbox console-exclusive Quantum Break 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 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.
