The Witness and Assassin’s Creed make April’s Games With Gold line-up one of the best yet

Matt Sayer 29 March 2018 NEWS

Strain your brain and thwart conspiracies with April's stellar selection of Games With Gold's free games.

Now that we're years deep into the current console generation, the backlog of games Microsoft and Sony have to pull from for their subscription services is chock-full of quality titles you may have missed the first go around. Microsoft is taking advantage of this for its upcoming April Games With Gold free games, scooping off the cream of the crop from the last few years of Xbox One games.

Headlining next month's offerings is the fantastic first-person puzzler The Witness. Designed by Jonathon Blow, the creator of the acclaimed Xbox 360 title Braid, The Witness appears deceptively simple at first, tasking you with completing basic line puzzles to progress through its gorgeous yet lifeless world. It doesn't take long for the true depth of the game to reveal itself, though, with those line puzzles evolving in ways you wouldn't think possible until you experience them yourself.

For those who prefer action to exploration, Assassin's Creed Syndicate joins The Witness as the second standout title of April's free games line-up. Set in Victorian-era London, Assassin's Creed Syndicate nails the smog-choked atmosphere of the period, with trains, carriages and cockney accents lending the world the authenticity Ubisoft is so well known for.

Xbox 360 owners aren't missing out next month, either, as the tense survival horror title Dead Space 2 brings the spooks to the last-gen system. If creepy space stations are a little too much for you, Cars 2 offers a family-friendly romp that almost certainly won't give you nightmares.

Check out the full release schedule for April's Games With Gold below:

  • The Witness – Available from 1 April to 30 April
  • Assassin's Creed Syndicate – Available from 16 April to 15 May
  • Cars 2: The Video Game – Available from 1 April to 15 April
