Xbox Games With Gold April 2021 Lineup Is Weak?
ScreenRant reported that the upcoming games for the Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers do not hold a stable ground, as it is laughably bad. After all, Microsoft has a strong lineup of game titles from the previous month, bringing 20 new games from Bethesda during the Zenimax acquisition.
But ultimately, the company has more upcoming game titles for April, as "Outriders" will have a one-day launch on April 1 with the four new games from Xbox with Gold games.
