There’s a fresh slew of titles headed to the Xbox Game Pass program in April. And a few of them may turn some heads.
- Robocraft Infinity
- Cities: Skylines
- theHunter: Call of the Wild
- Kingdom: New Lands
- Portal Knights
- Sacred Citadel
- Late Shift
Robocraft Infinity is an exclusive title to the Xbox platform. It’s debuting with the Game Pass program, so we don’t know much about it as of this point. But we do know that you “build the robot of your dreams and take it into battle online.”
Next on the list, and perhaps the biggest name amongst them all, is Cities: Skylines. It’s a city-building game akin to Sim City. The game was revered upon its debut. And Paradox Interactive and Colossal Order continue to support it with fresh, premium DLC content.
theHunter: Call of the Wild is a hunting sim. The developers tout that it offers “the most immersive hunting experience ever created.”
Kingdom: New Lands is a kingdom-building sim game. But it differs considerably from Cities in that its designed around 2 dimensional pixel art. And the fact that you’re a King or Queen governing a much older era.
Portal Knights is described as an action JRPG combined with “packed dungeons and stylish storytelling.” It initially debuted back in 2016 to a 75 Metascore.
ClusterTruck is a fun addition to this April’s lineup. It’s a physics based indie platformer that sees you attempt to complete various courses while leaping across moving semi-trucks – a cluster of them, in fact. And you’re never quite sure how they’re going to react to any given environment. It’s a great pass-and-play party title.
Sacred Citadel is a side-scrolling action brawler. It’s been around for a while, originally releasing in 2013. Developed by Southend Interactive and published by Deep Silver, the game scored a mediocre 61 on Metacritic.
Finally, Late Shift rounds out the April Xbox Game Pass class. This one is unique in that it’s a full motion video adventure. It was published and developed by Wales Interactive back in 2017 to little fanfare. But it certainly looks unique. Checkout the debut trailer and see for yourself if it’s up your alley:
