share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

The Xbox Games with Gold lineup for February 2022 has just gone live, but we know gamers always have one eye on the future, so here's what you need to know about what's coming next.

For those who don't know, Games with Gold is Microsoft's answer to Sony's own PlayStation Plus service. It's just one element of the Xbox Live gaming service, and guarantees subscribers at least 4 free games to download each month.

These games need to be added to your library and you can keep them for as long as you pay for the service, just like you can with PlayStation Plus. Games with Gold will start including games for the Xbox Series X|S consoles in 2022, though it's unclear when that might start.

Xbox Games with Gold April 2022 Release Date

The release pattern for Xbox Games with Gold is pretty formulaic and as such we know exactly when the games will become available to subscribers.

We should see one Xbox One era game released on April 1 available until April 30. A second Xbox One title should then arrive on April 16, available until May 15.

Also available on March 1 will be the first of two Backwards compatible titles. One should be available until April 15, at which point it'll be replaced by the second backwards compatible title on April 16 for the remainder of the month.

When Will Xbox Games With Gold April 2022 be announced?

Unlike PS Plus, the Xbox Games with Gold titles are not announced on a specific day every month. There's no exact pattern for when Microsoft announces their next slate of free games.

That being said, it's traditionally revealed quite late in the month, normally on the last week and via Xbox's Major Nelson on Twitter. That being said, we've occasionally seen the announcements made as late as the last day of a month, so don't hold you're breath, just make sure you've downloaded you're existing games before they're switched out.

Xbox Games with Gold April 2022 Predictions

The thing about predictions is that they're largely nonsense (sorry). The selection of games released with Games with Gold rarely follows any sort of theme making it impossible to predict. That's especially true for months where there could be an obvious theme, like Halloween or Christmas. We're sure you'll find predictions on other sites, but you're wasting your time.

What Games Are Currently Available In March 2022?

At the time of writing Xbox Live Gold subscribers can pick up the following Games with Gold titles:
