The Next Wave of Xbox Game Pass Games Has Been Unveiled

Xbox Game Pass April 2023 Wave 2

Want to take on the bloodsucking undead? The next wave of Xbox Game Pass Games is on the way and includes the vampire busting Redfall.

Redfall is arriving on the day of the release though, curiously, the game launches without a performance mode. You’ll need Xbox Live Gold if you want to play co-op but if you’ve wanted to go all Buffy the Vampire Slayer, this Xbox Game Pass arrival could be right up your street.

Aside from Redfall, Medieval Dynasty is also launching on Xbox One. Yes, it’s been lurking round on PC and Xbox Series X|S but it’s now hitting the last-gen console. We’re sure no-one will get horribly murdered by invading bandits.

So what else is on offer? Here are all the titles joining in April and, in the case of Redfall, at the beginning of May.

  • Minecraft Legends (Cloud, Console, and PC) – out now.
  • Coffee Talk Episode 2: Hibiscus & Butterfly (Cloud, Console, and PC) – April 20
  • Medieval Dynasty (Xbox One) – April 20
  • Homestead Arcana (Cloud, PC, and Xbox Series X|S) – April 21
  • Cassette Beasts (PC) – April 26
  • BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle Special Edition (Cloud, Console, and PC) – April 27
  • The Last Case of Benedict Fox (Console and PC) – April 27
  • Redfall (Cloud, PC, and Xbox Series X|S) – May 2

We’re particularly looking forward to Cassette Beasts, which is a musically-themed RPG battler with Pokemon-style elements. Minecraft Legends is already out and if you’re having trouble with it, check out our guides here.

However, there are also a few titles leaving the service as well, at the end of April. Here’s what’s making an exit:

  • Bugsnax (Cloud, Console, and PC)
  • Destroy All Humans! (Cloud, Console, and PC)
  • Dragon Quest Builders 2 (Cloud, Console, and PC)
  • Tetris Effect Connected (Console and PC)
  • Unsouled (Cloud, Console, and PC)

Be sure to check out Bugsnax and Tetris Effect Connected, before they make their exit. Tetris Effect Connected is as amazing as Tetris gets and Bugsnax.. well, we’ll leave you to discover that one for yourself. You can find the full list of Xbox Game Pass DLC, games and so on on the official Xbox blog.

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
