Xbox Games with Gold April 2018 FREE games: Next Major Nelson reveal is coming soon

Xbox One Games with Gold subscribers don't have long to wait until Microsoft reveals the new free Xbox Games with Gold titles for April 2018.

With the current Games with Gold titles for March only lasting for another 13 days we should hear news relating to the new free game titles any day next week.

Typically Microsoft announces their new games lineup well in advance of their typical end date.

For three of the last four months that have passed, Major Nelson and Microsoft have announced the news on the 22nd of each month, which would indicate an announcement this coming Thursday.

In the case of last month though, it was slightly earlier, with the news dropping on Tuesday 20th February. So who knows, maybe the announcement is only two days away?

In some incidents, Microsoft has announced the news as late as the 27th of a month, although that particular month was during E3 week, so a delay to the news was sort of expected.

There's certainly no set rules though, and it's possible we could start hearing rumours of which games will be available from today should the usual array of leaks hit the web.

So far though, there are no leads on what games Microsoft could be dolling out. However, that hasn't stopped some sites from making their predictions.

NEW Xbox One Games rumoured to be in development

For those unfamiliar with how Games with Gold works – perhaps for anyone who only got their first Xbox in the last month – here's a quick explainer:

Every month Xbox Live Gold members will receive four new free games – two on Xbox One and two on Xbox 360.

Typically, Games With Gold includes two titles available for a period of two weeks and another two available for a month. It can get confusing and you don't want to accidentally miss out on downloading a great game, so it's worth marking the dates down on your calendar to ensure you don't miss out.

Equally, you shouldn't forget that two of the games included are from the Xbox 360 era, and that means both titles can be played on your Xbox One thanks to the console's backwards compatibility features.

Plus, now that the Xbox One has a dedicated Xbox 360 backwards compatibility store, you can easily search for, find, and download these games should you forget to download them for free during Games with Gold.
