April Games with Gold Xbox One / 360


This article was guest written by Danny Petsis.


It is DOUBLE Games with Gold for April. While some may have thought Microsoft was pulling a big April Fools joke, the reality – according to ‘E’ on Major Nelson’s Podcast – is that Games with Gold turns one this April, and this is how Microsoft is celebrating.

Starting April 1st, Xbox One owners receive Pool Nation FX and Child of Light and Xbox 360 owners recieve Terraria and Gears of War Judgment. On April 16, we will receive two additional games for Xbox 360: Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag and Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel. April is looking like a great month to be an Xbox Live Gold Member.

Xbox One

Pool Nation FX – A pool simulator, with better graphics, physics and soundtrack than any other pool game. Pool Nation FX comes with a host of features including practice mode, spectate mode, share, edit, create trick shot, league play, online play and very intelligent AI.

Child of Light – You play a girl named Aurora, who was stolen from her home. Your quest in this role-playing game is to return home and also bring back the sun, stars and the moon from the Queen of the Night. The game has a very similar presentation to Limbo and the Final Fantasy series.

Terraria – In this action/adventure game you construct, combat and explore through the open-ended 2D sandbox with three simple tools, a pickaxe for mining, an axe for woodcutting and for combat you have a sword. Collect coins, life crystals, fruit, upgrade your character/items and have fun exploring.

Xbox 360

Gears of War Judgment – This is the fourth game in the Gears of War franchise; however, Judgment is the prequel and features Damon Baird and Augustus Cole as the protagonists. You progress through the story playing as a different member of the squad. The online play isn’t as solid as it was in the first three Gears of War games, but this is still a fun title and a good story.

Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag – Black Flag is the sixth installment in the Assassin’s Creed Franchise but the sequel to Assassin’s Creed III. The story is set in the Caribbean during the Golden Age of piracy in the 18th Century. Beautiful scenery surrounds you in Havana, Nassau, Kingston, and parts of Florida and Mexico as you try to solve a conspiracy within the British and Spanish Empires. Another great Assassin’s Creed game offered on April 16 to April 30 for free with a Gold Membership.

Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel – This is the third game in the franchise and will be given out on April 16 with your Xbox Live Gold Membership. In Army of Two you are essentially an army of two men that were recruited for the T.W.O (Tactical Worldwide Operations) and your mission is to rescue many hostages in a cartel compound as you can. During your operation you only find one hostage, Fiona. You save Fiona, and five years later are hired by a Mexican politician to bring down a nasty leader of a gang. If you liked the other Army of Two games in the series this is a must play. If you have never tried out the series I highly recommend it.


Enjoy the Double Games with Gold Month! Two days into it I know I am.
