Get ready for some space adventures, because Xbox and Microsoft have announced the April Games With Gold for Xbox Live Gold subscribers.
First up on Xbox One, it's action RPG The Technomancer. Set in the same universe as developer Spiders' previous title Mars: War Logs, The Technomancer sees players take control of Technomancer Zachariah as he navigates the shady corporations and dwindling resources of post-colonization Mars. The Technomancer will be available via Games With Gold throughout the entire month of April.
Also available on Xbox One is Outcast: Second Contact. This remake of the classic 1999 action-adventure title was developed by original Outcast creators Appeal. In many ways, Outcast spearheaded the open-world revolution with its huge, expansive alien environments and numerous NPCs to interact with. Outcast: Second Contact can be downloaded between April 16th and May 15th.
On the backward-compatible front (no pun intended) we have Star Wars: Battlefront II. This is the original Xbox title rather than the new one, so don't fret if you remember the controversy. Battlefront II takes the open-ended combat of its predecessor and adds a more expansive campaign as well as several other new features. Battlefront II can be yours from April 1st to April 15th if you're an Xbox Live Gold subscriber.
Finally, there's Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 (whew, take a breath). This one's a tactical shooter for the Xbox 360 set around the US-Mexico border and follows directly on from the events of the original GRAW. You can grab this one starting April 16th and you'll have until April 30th to download it.
As ever, you'll have access to these games on Xbox One as long as you're a Games With Gold subscriber. If you haven't yet downloaded March's Games With Gold, you've still got until March 31st to grab Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, and Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion. Subscriptions can be had for $9.99 monthly, $24.99 for three months, or $59.99 for a year.
