The Wolf Among Us and Sunset Overdrive headline your April Games with Gold

2 min read


Xbox Live’s games with Gold have, in my opinion, been better than the ones offered by the competition lately – at least where value is concerned. Many have been asking for AAA retail games to be part of the games packages that come as part of the Instant Games Collection and Games With Gold. Microsoft’s been delivering. This month, subscribers could download Sherlock Holmes Crimes and Punishments, along with Lords of the Fallen.

Microsoft hinted that April’s might be better – so there’s a great deal of expectation. Rumors have suggested that Telltale’s The Wolf Among Us would be part of the games collection, and those rumours are right – but it’s the second game that’ll win subscribers over.

Xbox One owners will be able to download Sunset Overdrive from mid April – getting access to Insomniac Games’ Xbox One exclusive action game – that’s a bit like Ratchet And Clank mixed with Tony Hawk.

On the Xbox 360 (and Xbox One through Backwards Compatibility) you’ll be able to download one of the finest Survival Horrors ever made; Dead Space. You’ll also get to download Saint’s Row IV, letting you live out your superhero fantasies.

To sum:

  • “The Wolf Among Us”: Available from April 1-30 on Xbox One
  • “Sunset Overdrive”: Available from April 16-May 15 on Xbox One
  • “Dead Space”: Available from April 1-15 on Xbox 360
  • “Saints Row IV”: Available from April 16-30 on Xbox 360

That’s a pretty damned good month, I think. I sincerely hope Sony has something interesting for PlayStation fans in April.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
