Now Playing: Free Xbox One/Xbox 360 Games With Gold For April 2018 Announced

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.

The Witness and Cars 2 are available to download for Xbox Live Gold members right now, a day earlier than each month's typical release. You won't be able to grab them from the Games with Gold hub today, but a quick search in the store shows that both titles are available for free now.

The Witness will be up for grabs until May 1 and Cars 2 will see the end of its rotation on April 15. Download The Witness here, and Cars 2 here. Xbox has not commented on why both were marked down early.

But just because the next round of games are up now, it doesn't mean March's final batch has been cut short. Today is the final day to pick up Trials of the Blood Dragon and Quantum Conundrum on Xbox One.

April 2018 Games With Gold

Xbox One

  • The Witness (April 1-30)
  • Assassin's Creed Syndicate (April 16-May 15)

Xbox 360 (playable on Xbox One)

  • Cars 2 (April 1-15)
  • Dead Space 2 (April 16-30)
