The Witness, Dead Space 2 Are April's Stellar Xbox Games With Gold Titles

Also Cars 2 in case you're wondering.

Microsoft announced this month's free Games with Gold titles for the Xbox One and Xbox 360. Starting in April, players with Xbox Gold can download and play The Witness, Assassin's Creed Syndicate, Cars 2, and Dead Space 2 for free, granted they have a current Gold membership.

This is a pretty stellar selection of games if I do say so myself. Assassin's Creed Syndicate is seen as a step-up from the poorly received Assassin's Creed Unity, and Dead Space 2 is one of the best horror games of all-time. Also The Witness is considered really good, but I wouldn't know. I'm still stuck about an hour into the game.

If you're having trouble with The Witness like me, we do have a complete The Witness puzzle guide that I might be dipping into when I try my hand again at solving Jonathan Blow's puzzler. Though I might try tackling it blind at first, just to say I tried.

This is a really good month of games for Xbox Gold members. Games With Gold if you don't know, is Xbox's take on PS Plus' free monthly games, where subscribers to the Xbox online service plan also get a bonus selection of games each month. If you're a subscriber of both Xbox Gold and PS Plus, this is a second good month of games for you as PlayStation recently put up Bloodborne and Ratchet and Clank for free during the month of March.

The Xbox Games With Gold titles will be available in April, so be sure to check in then and add those games to your library before they disappear in May, replaced by a new slate of games that may or may not be as strong as this month's lineup.
