Release Date

With the current situation in the world, getting a win every now and again is a very welcome experience indeed.

One of those wins can come if you're an Xbox Live Gold member, withh Games with Gold monthly campaign.

Last month, two incredible games that made lockdown that much more bearable.

Project CARS 2 and Fable Anniversary have been available for all of April, but now our attention turns to May and when we will actually see the new games.

Let's have a look at the release date, as well as our very own predictions and how to download April's free games!

Predictions

We've just got our predictions for PS Plus’ May titles out, so here are our predictions for Xbox’s monthly campaign.

Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens

The first LEGO Star Wars instalment arrived a whopping 15 years back on the Game Boy Advance.

THE FORCE IS STRONG: We are really hoping to see the most up to date Lego Star Wars game this month

Well, the franchise is primed to return to consoles in 2020 with The Skywalker Saga, and we couldn’t be more excited!

We’ve already covered the best character combos available to use in The Force Awakens, so we really hope this one pops up!

Ride 2

In Ride 2 you’ll be able to discover, transform and test out the fastest and most iconic motorbikes in the world.

Co-op cooking has never been more needed than it is this month.

TEAMWORK: Makes the dream work

Overcooked 2 is a whirlwind of challenges to get dishes prepped while surviving kitchens that would give Gordon Ramsey fits.

Predictions: Lockdown Edition

For the millions of gamers sitting in lockdown around the world – we’ve thought of a few games that will keep you stimulated and test your survival instincts.

The Walking Dead: A New Frontier

With the first two seasons currently available on Netflix, adding The Walking Dead: A New Frontier would be the perfect game to head into lockdown with.

A NEW FRONTIER: Does the game follow the same direction as the show? Find out below

This game focuses on developing Clementine in a lot of ways, though they are not in control of her.

Resident Evil 7

Resident Evil 7 is the first main series game to use the first-person view.

TERRIFYING: It seems like zombie games are pretty popular in the Reddit predictions thread this month

In the 7th instalment to Capcom’s epic series, players are in control of Ethan Winters as he searches for his wife in a plantation occupied by a cannibal family.

Wouldn’t it be great if we could dig into it for the entirety of May? Well, we think so.

The Darkness

Starbreeze Studios doesn’t really have a presence on Xbox Games with Gold, but the perfect game to bring to the campaign would be The Darkness.

BOSS: Jackie Estacado is in complete control of her actions… or at least she thought she was

It follows a unique story with a true setting where former gangster pursues revenge and love while being inhabited by a powerful entity known as the Darkness.

Reveal Date

Unlike Sony’s monthly campaign, PS Plus, Games With Gold doesn’t actually have an official release date each month.

ELUSIVE: Microsoft likes to keep the community on its toes with their reveals

That said, we’ve seen February, March and April’s games all get revealed on the last Tuesday of the month.

Therefore, we can expect to see the free Xbox games revealed on Tuesday 28 April, at around 3pm.

Release Date

Thanks to the slightly random nature of the Games With Gold drops, we do not have a specific date to stick by.

EXPIRING SOON: These two insane games are only available for the next couple of weeks!

That said, the May campaign will likely be available to download from the day that April’s titles expire.

Project CARS 2 and Fable Anniversary will be available until 30 April, so we can assume that May’s games will be available to download from Friday 1 May.
