The Xbox Game Pass is always making big moves to attract more and more gamers to the service. Once again, it appears that April will be another huge month for the Xbox Game Pass. Games are constantly being added and taken away every month. However, getting all variety of video games for one low price is always something to celebrate.
April is set to have some pretty big video games release on the Xbox Game Pass. On April 8, GTA V will once again be making its way onto the Xbox Game Pass. I say once again because GTA V was already on the Xbox Game Pass at one point, but was taken off of it when Red Dead Redemption II was released on the pass as well. GTA V is a video game that many gamers love to play so this news is sure to get many excited.
Four days after GTA V is added to the mix, NHL 21 will be available to download on the Xbox Game Pass as well on April 12. This will be a nice addition to have added for any sports fans who love the NHL video game franchise, but the sports madness doesn’t end there.
Perhaps the biggest news for the Xbox Game Pass as of late is \the announcement that MLB The Show 21 will be added to the pass upon release. Well, guess what? MLB The Show 21 releases April 20! That means that you will be able to download it and play MLB The Show 21 in just under two weeks on the Xbox Game Pass. Being able to get MLB The Show 21 to join the pass is such a massive move figuring that the game has previously been a PlayStation exclusive in years past.

As you can see, Microsoft is planning on April to be a pretty significant month in terms of their gaming subscription. NHL 21, MLB The Show, and GTA V are three games that makes the Xbox Game Pass worth it on its own. On top of those three games, there are still hundreds of other games that you can explore. So, what games are you excited to play on the Xbox Game Pass this April?
