Xbox Game Pass Reveals Next Batch Of Games For April 2022

The next batch of Xbox Game Pass games have been revealed for April, and it includes the previously PlayStation exclusive Bugsnax

Earlier this month we learned that Life is Strange: True Colors and MLB The Show 22 were getting added to the Game Pass lineup for April. And now Xbox have revealed the next batch, adding a few new titles to the service. And a couple that now have cloud streaming capability. Probably the biggest addition to Game Pass is Young Horses’ Bugsnax, a title previously a PlayStation console exclusive, arriving April 28. Though if Xbox doesn’t take your fancy, you can talk about Bugsnax over on Nintendo Switch too.

Already available as part of the new batch is the indie game Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion. “Take control of the titular turnip seeking a way to pay back his debts to a corrupt onion mayor,” reads the description for the game. F1 2021 and Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered can both now be played via the cloud too.

what else is coming to game pass in april?

On April 26, 7 Days to Die is coming to the service, a “brutally unforgiving post-apocalyptic world overrun by the undead.” And on the same day, the turn-based action game Research and Destroy is joining Game Pass. Lastly, Unsouled, “a punishingly difficult (yet fair) Action RPG,” is coming to Game Pass April 28. 

The blog post announcing this batch’s titles also confirmed that Xbox is working with Ubisoft to bring more titles to Game Pass. Assassin’s Creed Origins will be joining the library for cloud, console, and PC via the Ubisoft Connect app. And For Honor: Marching Fire Edition will be coming to PC via the Ubisoft Connect app. With an upgrade to the Marching Fire Edition for cloud and console. Both will be arriving some time in the next couple of months.
