April 2017′s Xbox Games With Gold: Ryse up and assassinate

Alex Kidman 24 March 2017


Xbox One launch title plus Assassin’s Creed highlight Microsoft’s April free games.

If you’re an Xbox Live Gold subscriber, one of the high points of your month comes when Microsoft releases its free Games With Gold titles. They’re free to download, and yours for as long as you keep up your subscription to Xbox Live Gold itself. Over the years we’ve seen some real heavy hitters given away, some indie darlings given the spotlight, and a few clunkers as well.

Microsoft is going all the way back in Xbox One terms, offering up Crytek’s decidedly average (at best) launch title Ryse: Son Of Rome from the 1st of April.

Xbox One owners also get season 2 of Telltale’s The Walking Dead to shamble through, but that won’t arrive until April 16 to play. You do get until mid-May to add it to your games library, however.

The other side of the Games With Gold equation is the inclusion of Xbox 360 titles. On that score, Darksiders lands on April 1st until the 15th, while the second half of the month serves up Assassin's Creed Revelations to play.

Both Xbox 360 titles are backwards compatible with Xbox One.
