You Can Claim April's Xbox Games With Gold Freebies Now

April's first two Games With Gold titles are available to claim now on Xbox One and Xbox Series X.


April is finally here, which means new Games with Gold are free now for Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass Ultimate subscribers. The new batch of free Xbox games includes Vikings: Wolves of Midgard and Truck Racing Championship for newer titles. Additionally, games that released on the Xbox 360, including Dark Void and Hard Corps: Uprising, are up for grabs this month. Vikings: Wolves of Midgard and Dark Void are available now, with the other titles unlocking later this month.

Vikings: Wolves of Midgard, which was originally released in 2017, takes players to the mythological world of Midgard, where they fight against Jotan and other creatures of Ragnarok. The other current-gen freebie, Truck Racing Championship, came out in 2019. Like its name suggests, it is a big-rig racing game featuring 45 vehicles and 14 circuits.

April's other free Games With Gold titles include Dark Void, an Xbox 360 game that originally released in 2010. Players can fight against hostile aliens on the ground or in the air with a special jetpack feature. The fourth and final freebie for April is Hard Corps: Uprising, the 2011 run-and-gun action game set in the Contra universe.

Plus, keep in mind you still have time to claim VALA: Vicious Attack Llama Apocalypse from last month's lineup, which will remain free until April 15.
