Microsoft has announced the Games with Gold April 2019 free games lineup and yet again, it feels a bit mediocre. Xbox Live subscribers on Xbox One, just like last month, might at least get a bit out of these titles, especially via Backwards Compatibility as Microsoft is yet again giving away a free Star Wars game and this one is a whole lot of fun.
The Games with Gold April 2019 free games lineup includes The Technomancer, which I personally enjoyed but got some seriously bad reception from critics, as well as Outcast: Second Contact (which is pretty fun), the classic Star Wars Battlefront 2 and Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2. It is very difficult to say which is best between the Games with Gold March and April lineups but I would give the April lineup the slight edge, which means things are improving, right?
The Games with Gold April 2019 free games lineup is as follows and please note that the Star Wars Battlefront II isn’t the one released in 2017, but a much older and arguably better one:
- The Technomancer – Available from 01 April to 30 April on Xbox One
- Outcast: Second Contact – Available from 16 April to 15 May on Xbox One
- Star Wars Battlefront II – Available from 01 April to 15 April on Xbox 360 and Xbox One
- Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 – Available from 16 April to 30 April on Xbox 360 and Xbox One
Check out a description of each of the Games with Gold March 2019 titles below as well as the Games with Gold March 2019 video announcement.
Take on the role of an ascending mage warrior in the action RPG title, The Technomancer. Feared and respected by all, you’ll develop four different combat skill trees based on three different fighting styles. Craft your weapons, take part in dynamic conversations and explore lost cities as your actions dramatically alter the story and world.
Outcast: Second Contact
Play the complete remake of the cult-classic that started the open world, action-adventure genre in Outcast: Second Contact. On Adelpha, an alien world as beautiful as it is dangerous, explore magic and science and make the right choices to save the destiny of two universes.
Star Wars Battlefront II
Take part in a battle far, far away in the classic Star Wars Battlefront II. Either play the campaign of a veteran clone trooper reminiscing of his time in the 501st Legion or enjoy multiple gameplay modes. Fight on foot in the front lines, use the force powers of a Jedi, or dogfight in space in your favourite starships, all in 16 exotic locations.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2
Defend the nation from cross-border insurgents in Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2. In this tactical shooter, command your unit and complete your missions in dynamic weather conditions and a real-time day and night cycle. You’ll have 72 hours to defeat the enemy across mountainous terrain, small towns and urban environments.
