It looks like Xbox Austria leaked April’s Games with Gold a couple of hours early. The Xbox Austria Facebook page is verified and unless they shared a photoshopped image, these are indeed April’s free titles for Xbox Live subscribers. The month starts off with Ryse: Son of Rome and Darksiders for Xbox One and Xbox 360, respectively. As always, Darksiders will be playable on Xbox One due to backward compatibility. Ryse: Son of Rome is a third-person brawler which features unbelievable visuals. While the game didn’t garner critical acclaim, players loved it. Darksiders is another third-person brawler but instead of starring as a Roman solider, you’re a Horseman of the Apocalypse.
The middle of the month brings us some other gems as well. Season 2 of The Walking Dead will be available to subscribers from April 16. The Walking Dead has to be one of Telltale’s crowning achievements and it’s great to see this quality title with the rest. Out of all of these, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations has to be the one gamers will be most excited for. The game ties up the beloved Ezio’s story and features incredible visuals for an Xbox 360 title.
If this image is indeed true and wasn’t posted in error by Xbox Austria, this month has to be one of the biggest for Games with Gold. All of these titles are crowd-pleasers which will appeal to a majority of gamers. As with any such leak, take it with a grain of salt until there is official confirmation from Larry Hryb.
Update: Larry Hryb confirmed the Games with Gold on Twitter. Ryse: Son of Rome, The Walking Dead: Season 2, Darksiders and Assassin’s Creed: Revelations will indeed be April’s free games.
