While players think the March 2017 free games list is great, having an Xbox Live Gold subscription will feel even better this April.

Microsoft has just announced its Xbox Games with Gold April 2017 free games list via Xbox Wire. Based on the announcement, two major action-filled Xbox One games are free to play next month, and they are “Ryse: Son of Rome” and “The Walking Dead: Season 2.” Also, two famous games are going to be available at no cost for Xbox 360. These are “Darksiders” and “Assassin’s Creed Revelations.”

From April 1 to April 30, “Ryse: Son of Rome” is going to be available for free. The game is normally sold at $19.99, and it can also be played on the Microsoft Windows platform. It is a hack and slash game, and it is played in a third-person perspective. The game is set in the late Roman Empire, and the player controls a soldier named soldier Marius Titus as he embarks on a precarious war to avenge the death of his people and defend the honor of Rome.

On the other hand, with an actual price of $24.99, “The Walking Dead: Season 2” is an episodic interactive video game which can be played on a lot of platforms including Microsoft Windows, OS X, PlayStation 4, iOS, and Android.
