XBOX GAMES WITH GOLD FREE GAMES PREDICTIONS FOR APRIL 2018
Every month, those who subscribe to Microsoft’s Xbox Live Gold service are gifted a few free games via the Games with Gold program. Usually, one or two larger AAA titles are the headliners to get subscribers excited about the service and looking forward to the lists revealed every month.
For our predictions, next month we suspect sports game Rocket League will be one of those titles for a few different reasons. Firstly, Rocket League has already been offered free on the Microsoft store in one way or another, as back in February 2017 Rocket League and NBA 2K17 were offered free from the 16th -19th in a special promotion.
As well, Rocket League is already available on multiple platforms, including the Nintendo Switch in November 2017. While the game is most supported by Sony, as it was offered for free when it first released on the platform on PS Plus, when something is already available on multiple platforms there is unlikely that Microsoft would be hesitant in offering it for free on their own platform.
Another likely candidate would be Watch Dogs 2 from Ubisoft. Set in a fictionalized San Francisco, you play as hacker Marcus Holloway who is trying to take down the ctOS city surveillance service with his hacking group DedSec. Watch Dogs 2 would be a great inclusion as it was a popular and mostly well-received title that fans would be happy to get, and the first Watch Dogs has already been offered on Games with Gold back in May 2017.
