Xbox Live Gold makes new games free to subscribers

Xbox Live Gold subscribers on Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S can now download two new games as part of April’s free Games With Gold games offering. Last month, Xbox players protested against the offer of the month, which is admittedly very poor, especially when compared to the PlayStation Plus offering for the month. Two of these games will be available to all subscribers in early April: Vikings: Wolves or Midgard and Dark emptinessThe former will still be available for download until April 30, but the latter has returned to its regular price and gave way to the other two games included in the monthly offering.

From now on, all Xbox Live Gold subscribers can download both Truck Racing Championship and Hard Corps: Uprising free. The former is an Xbox One game that can also be played via backward compatibility on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, while the latter is an Xbox 360 game that can be played on any of its successors using the same technology.

Below you can watch a trailer of both games, read an official description of each of them, and see how long they will all be available for free to anyone with an Xbox Live Gold subscription.
