April 2023 Xbox Games with Gold Announced - News

Microsoft has announced the Xbox Live Games with Gold for April 2023. Two Xbox One games will be free to download next month.

Here is the list of Games with Gold:

  • Out of Space: Couch Edition ($9.99 ERP): Available April 1 to 30
  • Peaky Blinders: Mastermind ($24.99 ERP): Available April 16 to May 15

Here is an overview of the games:

Out of Space: Couch Edition

There is no place like home, especially when you’re drifting through outer space. The challenge is that a deadly alien infestation has also settled in. It will take all your strategic skills to keep each newly generated spaceship house creating resources and recycling alien goo by automating tasks to help keep it clean and comfy. Play with friends to build a sustainable environment that you can all enjoy together.

Peaky Blinders: Mastermind

A plot is afoot to put the family out of business and it’s up to you to uncover it. Set prior to season one of the hit show, you can control six key members of the Shelby family, each with different strengths and weaknesses. If you need to bribe a cop, use Polly, but if you need to bust down a door or knock a few skulls, take control of Arthur. By using the right person at the right time and leveraging the game’s unique mechanics to move backwards or forwards through time, you can be the mastermind that puts everyone in sync to help unlock the puzzles.

they should just kill this thing :) and try to find away to bring those people to GamePass, maybe a tier that does the same thing (offers online). :)

At this point games with gold is causing more harm to MS than anything else. They should get rid of it and offer people a discount for games with gold. At least then the monthly games wont be a constant reminder of how MS has just given up on this.

0/10. Nothing is probably better than this.

A great example of MS pro-consumer practices everyone won't shut up about.

Gamepass/PSN premium "rotating" model is no substitute for my monthly PSN Plus essential offers that I get to keep and play without worrying about them being rotated out of my library.

Game Pass only rotates a relatively small collection of games. Anything first party, once in, stays in Game Pass forever*. And lots of third-party stuff is in there for a very long time too (one AA or AAA example being Outriders, that was there at launch and is still there, and too many indie examples to list).

  • The only potential exception is something with licenced content where the licence runs out, such as an old version of Forza, or similar.

I miss when we got Original Xbox/Xbox 360 games with gold, because even when your subscription expires, you could still play those games.

Microsoft should just can the scheme to be honest, reduce Golds price so it's a cheaper entry-point to online gaming and push gamepass front and center.
