April Games with Gold brings Vikings: Wolves of Midgard, Hard Corps: Uprising, and more

With April almost being here, Microsoft today revealed what bonus games are coming to Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members as part of the Games with Gold program in the new month.

The upcoming free games are split into two waves as usual, with them including two Xbox One games and two Xbox 360 games. Moreover, all of them are also playable natively on the new Xbox Series X|S consoles thanks to backward compatibility.

Here are the games and the promotion active periods for claiming:

Vikings: Wolves of Midgard: Available April 1 to 30 (Xbox One)

Truck Racing Championship: Available April 16 to May 15 (Xbox One)

Dark Void’s unique combination of jet-pack powered dog-fighting and ground-based combat brings a thrilling new dynamic to video-gaming. Experience the seamless transition between flight and fight in this epic adventure from Capcom.

Hard Corps: Uprising: Available April 16 to 30 (Xbox 360)

Thrilling retro run-and-gun action is back with a vengeance in Hard Corps: Uprising, a 2D side-scroller developed by ARC System Works that pays homage to classic Konami action series. Battle in the grueling trenches of Arcade mode, or the all-new Rising mode, where a point system allows you to purchase items and upgrades to help you achieve ultimate victory.

There is still time left on the March Games with Gold titles before the promotions begin ending with April's arrival. Warface: Breakout, Vicious Attack Llama Apocalypse, and Port Royale 3 are still available for Gold members to claim.

Those subscribing to the service should keep in mind that Microsoft is preparing to remove the need for Xbox Live Gold when playing free-to-play multiplayer games. The change is currently rolled out to Xbox Insiders, with everyone slated to gain access soon.
