Xbox Games With Gold For April 2021


Here are the games that you’ll get if you are an Xbox Live Gold Subscriber.

It is April already and Xbox Games With Gold subscribers will surely be chomping at the bit to see which new games are on offer this month .

This month they are offering four games to play until they are spirited away again, and a discount of course if you choose to buy the game when you have sampled it sufficiently.

The games on offer this month have four completely different genres starting with Viking Hack and Slash in Vikings: Wolves Of Midgard. We then get into the drivers seat with FIA European Truck Racing Championship. If you are more a fan of Sci-Fi the you should try Darkvoid . Last but not least you get to run and gun in Hard Corps: Uprising.

Vikings: Wolves Of Midgard (1ST of April to the 30th of April):

Vikings – Wolves of Midgard takes you to the Shores of Midgard, a world based upon the mythology and history of the Vikings, but with a fantasy twist. Battle the fearsome Jotan, hordes of terrifying undead monstrosities and the beasts of Ragnarok, as you strive to survive the growing cold of Fimbulwinter.

Ragnarok, Legend has it that when the coldest winter descends, the Jotan will return to take their vengeance against the Gods of Asgard. The world is on the road to perdition and the fate of Midgard hangs in the balance. But when the Fire and Frost Giants begin to merge their armies, they encounter the clan of the Ulfung – the Wolves of Midgard.

Bloody, but unbowed following the destruction of their village, this notorious band of ostracized Viking warriors are determined to seize their destiny and save the world. As clan chief, you must save Midgard from complete annihilation, and spearhead the charge to vanquish the fiendish creatures of the Fimbulwinter.

FIA European Truck Racing Championship (16th of April to the 15th of May):

The European Truck Racing Championship is one of the most spectacular and challenging motor racing competitions.

The driving difficulty and many unique race features have been faithfully reproduced with the KT Engine (WRC).

In ETRC, like on real-life race tracks, you need to control the temperature of your brakes so they don’t overheat. You must also consider the weight of the truck when cornering, monitor tyre wear and find the best tactics for overtaking.

Dark Void (1st of April to the 15th of April):

Dark Void™ is a sci-fi action-adventure game that combines an adrenaline-fueled blend of aerial and ground-pounding combat. Set in a parallel universe called “The Void”, players take on the role of Will, a pilot dropped into incredible circumstances within the mysterious Void. This unlikely hero soon finds himself swept into a desperate struggle for survival, joining forces with a rebel human group called The Survivors.

Trapped in the Void, these resistance fighters are battling to hold off a mysterious alien race that plans to threaten Earth. Dark Void’s unique combination of jet pack-booster aerial dog fighting and third-person combat brings a thrilling new gameplay dynamic to the third-person shooter experience.

Taking 3D action to a whole new level, Dark Void’s unique vertical combat system allows players to dangle from thousand foot drops as they take cover and hurl enemies to their doom, bringing a whole new sense of tension and thrill to the player. Will is also equipped with a powerful rocket pack which allows for fierce in-air combat, hurtling through the Void at blistering speeds while shooting down anything that gets in his path.

Hard Corps: Uprising (16th of April to the 30th of April):

In Hard Corps: Uprising, the player assumes the role of an elite soldier simply called Bahamut, along with other main characters. Hard Corps: Uprising is the thirteenth installment in the Contra series and serves as not only a spin-off to Contra: Hard Corps but also the “prequel” to the original Contra. In 2613, twenty years before the events of the original Contra, the world is ruled by an empire known as the Commonwealth, under the reign of Tiberius. Neighboring nations have suffered under the Commonwealth’s oppression and resistance forces rise across the land. However, so many resistance fighters have fallen to the overwhelming might of the empire, that their strength is now severely diminished. A group of elite soldiers rise through the ranks of the resistance and band together to execute a desperate plan. The leader of this group is the war hero Bahamut.
