The new Xbox Game Pass games for the second half of April 2022 are here, and there are a few big names sprinkled within. While early April was famed for introducing the indie hit Tunic to the service, this batch of additions isn’t quite as glamorous. Instead, there’s a bunch of triple-A backlog titles from EA, as well as the previous PlayStation exclusive Bugsnax. Read on to see all the Xbox Game Pass arrivals for the latter half of April 2022!
Xbox Game Pass April 2022 Additions
As per the blog post on the Xbox Wire website, the following games will land on Game Pass in the next fortnight.
April 19, 2022
- F1 2021 (Cloud version)
- Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered (Cloud version)
- Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion (Console, cloud, and PC)
April 26, 2022
- 7 Days To Die (Console, cloud, and PC)
- Research and Destroy (Console and PC)
April 28, 2022
- Bugsnax (Console, cloud, and PC)
- Unsouled (Console and PC)
In terms of big-name releases, none really match the caliber of Tunic and Life is Strange: True Colors earlier this month. Instead, there are quite a few notable arrivals on the cloud streaming service, for two EA Play games: F1 2021 and Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered. The two most exciting arrivals, aside from Bugsnax, are Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion and 7 Days To Die. The former is an indie dungeon-crawler where you play as an anthropomorphic turnip, bringing down the pillars of capitalism. The latter is very different: an open-world horror RPG where you mow down waves of the living dead.
