Normally around this time in a month, Microsoft would already have announced what games will be free as part of the Games with Gold for the arriving month. However, with April only a day away, that announcement isn't here yet. But what's already here (via Reddit), is a stealth drop of April's first wave of games.
Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers can now claim Project CARS 2 for Xbox One and Fable Anniversary for Xbox 360. The latter game is also available to Xbox One owners thanks to it being part of the backward compatibility program.
Use a Gold activated account to login to the Microsoft Store and claim the two games using the provided links below:
Project CARS 2 (Xbox One)
Project CARS 2 is the thrill of intense racing action in beautiful cars at stunning venues. Authentic and intuitive handling, truly dynamic weather, and a wealth of game modes delivers racing fun for everyone.
Fable Anniversary (Xbox 360 and Xbox One)
As the best-selling RPG on the original Xbox, Fable pioneered every player’s choice having a consequence. With Fable Anniversary, a spectacular HD remaster of the original Fable, players will be reminded of why the franchise is so special and unique.
An official announcement for all four games Microsoft is planning to make free for Xbox Live Gold holders in April should be arriving very soon, perhaps even later today. Don't forget that some March free games are still available to claim as well, with Batman: The Enemy Within, Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, and Sonic Generations staying put for now.
As always, all Xbox 360 games claimed via a Games with Gold promotion will continue being available even if the Xbox Live Gold subscription is discontinued. On the other hand, claimed Xbox One games are only playable while the account is Gold active.
