We know that the following titles will be included and that 95 Xbox One games will be $USD 10 or less!
- Rainbow Six Siege Deluxe Edition
- Gears 5: Game of the Year Edition

Release Date & Time
With an announcement due on March 30th, we're expecting Xbox to stick to their regular GWG release schedules going forwards into April 2021.
This means that one game will become available from April 1st until April 15th and another will be free to download and play from April 15th to the end of the month.
Then, like with previous months, another two of the games should be available throughout the whole month. These do change between each month and the fact that the announcement is coming so late could signal that the April 2021 GWG titles will be released later than usual.
It will look a little like this:
Xbox on Twitter will keep everyone updated and we'll make sure we alter this article with the correct information when it is revealed.

This is the part of the piece where we could say anything. There are ways to make semi-educated guesses at what's to come but it's always tough with so many Xbox games up for choice.
Each month, Games With Gold adds two Xbox One titles, and an Xbox 360 title, AND an Xbox Original game to their line-up. There's a lot of choices.
With this in mind, we've come up with a couple of titles that we think would make a fine addition to the Xbox GWG line-up in April 2021.
With the recent announcement of Life Is Strange: True Colors, could we see Life Is Strange 2 finally get added to Games With Gold?
The first title was added to GWG in 2015 and is getting an updated remastered version later this year. This would be the perfect time to re-introduce people to the series ahead of the new releases in the future.

In addition to this, we think the Xbox 360's Brink could be a fantastic way for Xbox to capitalise on the Xbox-Bethesda deal by adding a fantastic shooter title to the GWG service.
Another game we want to see is Bloodrayne 2. This is a pretty old title but one that deserves a lot more love and could offer a lot of people something different going forward.
"With new acrobatic movements and rail sliding, fast-paced blade and gun combat, fatal finishing moves, more dhampir powers like time control, and an extensive combo system, BloodRayne 2 is a brutally satisfying continuation of the iconic series."
Of course, these are just unconfirmed predictions but it's good food for thought going forwards into the announcement next week.
