Xbox Games with Gold April lineup detailed

With April coming in a few days, the company has announced the free titles you'll be able to grab on your Xbox One and Xbox 360 and - oh boy - next month will be a sweet one for Xbox Live subscribers.

Assassin's Creed Syndicate will become free for Xbox Live Gold members from April 16 to May 15. April's lineup provides over $129 dollars in value and up to 4000 in gamerscore.

The Witness is designer Jonathan Blow's followup to his debut indie platforming hit Braid.

Overall, it's another strong month for Games with Gold, bringing a collection of thought-provoking puzzles, open-world collect-a-thons, Pixar grinning faces and legitimately terrifying space spooks to Xbox One gamers.

The Xbox Live Games With Gold April 2018 line-up has been revealed. Both of these games can also be claimed on Xbox One, where they're playable through the backwards compatibility program. Assassin's Creed Syndicate ($49.99 ERP) will be available as a free download from April 16th to May 15th. Syndicate came out after the buggy and maligned Assassin's Creed: Unity, and it paid the price with lackluster sales. Still, this might be a good download if you've got some youngsters who would like to play, even if most players would otherwise give it a pass.

Dead Space 2 was a hit sci-fi action horror game from developer Visceral, which Electronic Arts shut down in October.

Featuring dual-protagonists Jacob and Evie Frye as they wrestle back control of a beautifully realised Victorian London from the Templar order one street at a time, Syndicate is a big ol' game - ideal for any time you might have off over Easter.
