We are expecting an announcement from Microsoft about April’s games at any moment.

In a normal month we would have heard about the titles last week, but obviously March has been far from normal thanks to COVID-19.

We have seen some games be impacted, such a Call of Duty, and have to delay updates.

Games with Gold April 2020 Predictions

Doom Slayer in Doom (2016)
DEMON KILLER: Fans have wanted Doom (2016) all year

It’s always tough to predict what games will be free each month given the sheer number of titles out here in the Xbox catalogue.

One game fans have asked for all year is Doom (2016). The iconic franchise got an incredibly successful reboot that delivered a shot of adrenaline to players. With the sequel, DOOM Eternal, dropping last week it seems like the perfect time to give players a taste.
