Destroy All Humans, Second Extinction, and more head to Xbox Game Pass

Xbox Game Pass arrivals April 2021 Wave 2

In the remainder of April, Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass subscription services are gaining even more games. The first wave from earlier in the month already carried some big hitters like Grand Theft Auto V, NHL 21, Zombie Army 4: Dead War, and the first-party Sony-developed game MLB The Show 21, which landed today.

In the next two weeks or so, the company plans to bring in the remade classic Destroy All Humans!, the early access co-op title Second Extinction, as well as cloud support for two classic Fable games. Here are all the games announced for the second wave of April arrivals and their launch dates on the service:

  • MLB The Show 21 (Cloud and Console) – Available Now
  • Phogs! (PC) – April 22
  • Second Extinction (Game Preview) (Cloud, Console, and PC) – April 28
  • Destroy All Humans! (Cloud, Console, and PC) – April 29
  • Fable III (Cloud) – April 30
  • Fable Anniversary (Cloud) – April 30

As usual, the above-mentioned 'Cloud' arrivals are for Android devices utilizing Xbox Game Pass Ultimate's cloud game streaming feature. However, this will change soon, as the technology is finally hitting PC and iOS, with Microsoft beginning public tests for the feature today utilizing a web portal.

The Xbox team has also brought touch controls to more cloud gaming supported titles, them being:

  • Banjo-Kazooie
  • Battle Chasers: Nightwar
  • Killer Queen Black
  • Overcooked! 2
  • Wreckfest
  • Double Dragon Neon

As more games enter the service, some older titles are phased out. Here are the experiences leaving on April 30.

  • Endless Legend (PC)
  • For the King (Cloud, Console and PC)
  • Fractured Minds (Cloud and Console)
  • Levelhead (Cloud, Console and PC)
  • Moving Out (Cloud, Console and PC)
  • Thumper (PC)

With April games out of the way, Microsoft will have the next wave of games hitting its services starting in May. Meanwhile, it was also revealed last week that the Xbox Skill in Alexa has gained a new capability. The Amazon voice assistant now has the ability to directly download games from Xbox Game Pass to an Xbox console when asked.
