The April Games with Gold isn't finished completely just yet either. The Xbox One title Hue is still available as a bonus game. This promotion will end on May 15 to make way for The Inner World – The Last Wind Monk from the upcoming second wave of May.

Xbox 360 games claimed via Games with Gold promotions will remain available even after the subscription is discontinued. However, any claimed Xbox One games are only playable while the account has an active subscription.
