Here we are again with our second Game Pass post for the month of April. All the games from the start of this month are now part of the service, but there was one bonus game. That game is Alien Isolation and is one horror fans should all give a try. It’s a solid horror game. Either way, though, hopefully, you got the chance to try some of them. This week though, Game Pass is hitting PC and Console with a ton more games. Without further adieu, here’s everything coming for the rest of April.
Gears Tactics is a tactical turn-based game in the style of XCOM from The Coalition. Gears Tactics brings you into the Gears of War universe, following Gabe Diaz in a story from before the first Gears of War. A brutal scientist known as Ukkon is breeding terrible Locust creations that could change the tide of the war. It’s up to you and fellow soldier Sid Redburn to assassinate him and put an end to those abominations. You can play Gears Tactics beginning April 28th on Game Pass PC and can get Thrashball Cole if you play before May 4th.
The Long Dark is a first-person survival game from the team at Hinterland Studios. Following a global disaster and crashing his plane in the Canadian wilderness, you must find a way back to safety. It’ll be up to you to use all your wits and the resources around you to ensure your survival. You aren’t alone in this wilderness, though, as wildlife doesn’t like you in their territory. This game is perfect for survival junkies and has just that right amount of survival and fear. This game comes to both Xbox and PC Game Pass tomorrow.
Gato Roboto is a silly Metroidvania game from none other than the team at Devolver Digital. As a small cat, hop into your cozy mech and battle your way through an alien underworld. Along the way, you’ll fight ever-increasing opponents and the world around you in an effort to find your captain and return to your ship. Critically-acclaimed, this is one game you won’t want to miss. Gato Roboto comes to Game Pass for PC and Xbox on April 21st.
Deliver Us The Moon is a sci-fi thriller from KeokeN Interactive. Earth’s natural resources have been depleted, and you’re the man to save humanity from near extinction. You must complete your critical mission, and bring a massive supply of energy to Earth if they are to survive this. Having received a 88% approval rating on Steam, this is one that you have to try regardless of interests. Deliver Us The Moon comes to Game Pass for PC and Xbox on April 23rd.
Levelhead is the latest from the team at Butterscotch Shenanigans. They’re known for their previous game Crashlands, which is a fun little survival game that I can recommend. Levelhead is a platformer about a little robot who must deliver good in a timely manner and against all the odds. You’ll have to avoid traps, deadly wildlife, and pitfalls, to deliver goods to the customers. The Levelhead division is known for incredibly success rates, and you should act to that standard too. Levelhead comes to Game Pass PC and Xbox starting April 30th.
And for our final PC and Xbox title, we have HyperDot from Tribe Games. You have one goal in this game: Dodge everything. You’ll test your skills and invade hundreds of enemies and projectiles in over 100 different levels. If single-player isn’t enough for you, take on your friends in several multiplayer courses or build your own. There’s lots of content and replayability here, with a unique and interesting game to get your hands on. You can start playing this game on Game Pass on April 30th.
And now our final game on the list, Machinarium from Amanita Design. An indie adventure game, Machinarium, as you play as Josef, a little robot who wants to save his girlfriend, Berta, from being kidnapped. You’ll take on the Black Cap Brotherhood using not only your fighting skills but also some swift puzzling skills. There’s a lot of charm in Machinarium, and it’s a game worth at least a try. Machinarium comes to PC Game Pass later this month.
And once again, that’s everything we have on the way. There’s really a lot to love here, so I hope you’ll join me in trying some of these titles. Anything specific you’ll be looking into?
