Xbox Game Pass kicks off April with a double-header of sports games, followed by a mix of RPGs, narrative adventures, and action games.

Here are 10 great games coming to Xbox Game Pass in April 2022.

EA

10. Cricket 22

(April 5, Cloud/Console)

Ah, cricket. A sport we all definitely understand. Cricket 22 features actual teams and players from both men’s and women’s cricket teams around the world.

Nacon

9. MLB The Show 22

(April 5, Cloud/Console)

The latest iteration of the premier baseball series hits Xbox Game Pass on day one. Rather than overhauling the series’ winning formula, MLB The Show 22 tweaks what was already there and adds new features like the customizable Mini Seasons.

Sony Interactive Entertainment

8. Chinatown Detective Agency

(April 7, Cloud/Console/PC)

Chinatown Detective Agency is a point-and-click cyberpunk mystery with a pleasingly retro aesthetic. Research and solve cases while trying to keep your struggling agency afloat.

General Interactive Co.

7. Dragon Age 2

(April 7, Cloud)

With Dragon Age 4’s release date still an open question, there’s still plenty of time to replay the series so far. Dragon Age 2 is a step down from the original’s tactical combat but makes up for it with a killer story.

6. Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare

(April 7, Cloud)

A friendlier take on competitive shooters, Garden Warfare brings characters from the classic Plants vs. Zombies tower defense game into a third-person shooter with distinct character classes.

5. Star Wars: Squadrons

(April 7, Cloud)

Star Wars: Squadrons is the closest you can get to actually piloting an X-wing. It has a full single-player campaign, but team-based multiplayer is the star here.

EA

4. Life Is Strange: True Colors

(April 12, Cloud/Console/PC)

The supernatural narrative game Life is Strange: True Colors stars Alex Chen, a woman with the power to absorb others’ emotions. Its setting, characters and overall writing are some of the best in the series.

Square Enix

3. Panzer Corps 2

(April 12, PC)

Panzer Corps 2 is a classic hex-based wargame that offers a fairly forgiving on-ramp for new players. For fans of WWII strategy games, it’s a must-play.

Flashback Games

2. The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk

(April 12, PC)

The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk blends comedy with sometimes brutal tactical battles. If its sense of humor works for you, you’ll find a lighthearted but hefty adventure here.

Artefacts Studio

1. Lost in Random

(April 14, Cloud/Console/PC)

Set in a dark fairytale world, Lost in Random has one of the cleverest combat systems in years, combining real-time action with dice rolls and tactical card-based strategy.
