Microsoft has revealed the next gaggle of games headed out to Xbox Game Pass members next month. Starting in April, eight more Xbox games will be added to the subscription service, with highlights that include city-building game Cities: Skylines, sandbox adventure Portal Knights, and more.
Here's a look at all of what's new for April:
- Robocraft Infinity
- Cities: Skylines
- theHunter: Call of the Wild
- Kingdom: New Lands
- Portal Knights
- Sacred Citadel
- Late Shift
If you're into management games like SimCity and Theme Park, then Cities: Skylines is worth giving a try. The detailed city simulation is top notch, and we came away from the experience pretty impressed. Writing in his review, Windows Central Xbox editor Jez Corden said:
Cities: Skylines is already highly regarded on PC for its lovingly detailed simulation gameplay. Few modern city-building games approach Skylines in terms of quality and depth, and it's awesome to see a smaller developer step in and prove that there's still an audience for this type of game, even if the big players weren't willing to provide it.
Robocraft Infinity is another interesting addition because it's the first ID@Xbox game to hit Xbox Game Pass on the same day of its release. Due out on April 11, Robocraftpits players against AI or real opponents with robot creations that they put together with more than 250 components. On Xbox One X, the game is enhanced to run a 60 frames per second and with 4K visuals.
April's lineup of games will join a growing list of more than 100 titles that also includes entries from the Gears of War series, Halo, Sea of Thieves, and many more. Xbox Game Pass costs $9.99 per month and new subscribers can check it out for free for 14 days.
