It feels like we just went through a ton of new games in March, but the Xbox Game Pass train doesn’t stop chugging along. It’s April 2nd, and since Microsoft didn’t want anyone confused on April Fool’s Day, the company is back with the next round of games that are coming (and leaving) the subscription service.

In a blog post, Xbox has announced what’s new for Game Pass in the first half of April 2024. There is one game that is available to play right now, some more games that are coming throughout the rest of the month, and a number of games that are leaving the subscription service.

Let’s jump in!
