PSA: Last Chance to Get Your Free April Xbox Games

New games for May will be available soon.


Today is April 30, the last day of the month, and that means Xbox Live Gold members have just hours left to claim their Games With Gold freebies for April.

Microsoft offered twice as many free games as usual this month, meaning you've got as many as four games to grab before the day is over. On Xbox One, there's Child of Light and Pool Nation FX, the latter of which will continue to be free throughout May. On Xbox 360, it's Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel and Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.

You don't need to own either system in order to add the games to your account. You can claim them through the SmartGlass app,, or on the systems themselves--Xbox One games can even be claimed from a 360 as of last month.

As with all Games With Gold games, the 360 titles are yours to keep forever, while the One games will remain playable as long as you have an Xbox Live Gold subscription.

The first of May's Games With Gold games will be released tomorrow and include CastleStorm: Definitive Edition. Check out the full list here.
