[Microsoft] Coming to Game Pass (Early April) - GTAV/Zombie Army 4/NHL21/MLB The Show and more

Not too shabby! Interesting to see Zombie Army 4 now coming to Xbox GP after also being announced for PS+. I for one am excited to try Pathways and Zombie Army 4. Been wanting to try Zombie Army 4 for quite awhile but didn't want to invest in it in case it wasn't my style!

Yes, MLB the Show was already announced but the rest of the titles were announced this AM.

Coming Soon

Grand Theft Auto V (Cloud and Console) – April 8
When a young street hustler, a retired bank robber and a terrifying psychopath find themselves entangled with some of the most frightening and deranged elements of the criminal underworld, the U.S. government and the entertainment industry, they must pull off a series of dangerous heists to survive in a ruthless city in which they can trust nobody, least of all each other.

Zombie Army 4: Dead War (Cloud, Console, and PC) ID@Xbox – April 8

MLB The Show 21 (Cloud and Console) – April 20
MLB The Show 21 is coming to Xbox Game Pass on day one on Cloud (Beta), Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. Experience faster, deeper, and more intense moment-to-moment action on the field in 4K 60FPS on Xbox Series X|S consoles.

The Rockstar games keep popping in and out, at least you've got the game no matter what.

Was going to say, id rather just buy it for $20 and have it then worry about if they are going to yank it again for 3 months. Nothing more frustrating then removing games with no rhythm reason or warning. Love my sales/physical media :)

Rockstar is really annoying with their stuff on Gamepass so you're better off having bought it IMO. I think they do it this way to goose DLC / microtransaction sales.

Nice. I'm looking forward to Rain on your Parade, it looks like something in the vein of Untitled Goose Game and Donut Country, both very chill, checklist games. Nice after a long day at work to just veg out to. Pathway looks pretty interesting too.

Never been a fan of sports games but I might try MLB The Show just because of all the hype and news surrounding it.

I started playing Zombie Army 4 for free on Stadia back when that deal came around but I never got around to finishing it. Looks like I'll be playing that again on April 8th!

Red Dead Redemption 2 was removed from GP after like 3 months. Wonder how long GTAV will last.

Doesn't seem like it's enhanced for Series console though. I thought an upgrade is coming soon.
There's a sucker born every minute.

The upgrade will cost money. R* doesn't do it free. Only hope we got is for Microsoft to patch it with HDR and FPS boost but since there's an upgraded version coming, doubt Microsoft will bother with it

GTA V was on it for quite a while before it was removed. They tried to add RDR2 thinking it would spur a similar GTA Online type of hype.

As much as I like Rockstar, they're really becoming greedy. They even changed up skus to charge more. Splitting RDR2 into a new RDR2 story and RDR2 Online or new versions of SKU's that have both and it costs more than what the original digital, special edition or ultimate edition had come down to digitally. The upgrade edition must be coming soon. They wanted more purchases so added it to sale.

Originally GTA V was on for around 5 months I think, RDR2 was on 4. This is before any re-additions. It's certainly long enough to beat them if you devote a lot of time to them but they are pretty sprawling games so I can see many casual gamers struggling to finish in that time span.

I find most other publishers to be a bit better with their Gamepass stuff, Rockstar is definitely "gaming" it a bit :)

Looking forward to playing The Show and being reminded just how awful at modern sports game I am. I will retreat to RBI Baseball or Basewars after Face With Tears Of Joy

Looks great but makes me also wish for the simple times of RBI Baseball or those Ken Griffey super nintendo games lol.

You are right this is R* after all. Still getting the enhanced version day 1 on Gamepass would have been a really good get for Microsoft.

I think the good get for Microsoft is if the plethora of new rumours of BF6 coming day one to Game Pass are true...

Interesting new MLB release is included while PS users shafted
Xbox announced last week that the PlayStation Studios title will be free to Xbox Game Pass subscribers on its release date of April 20, for both Xbox One and Xbox Series S/X.

The move was surprising since the game, which is developed by Sony’s San Diego studio, will release on Sony’s PS4 and PS5 consoles as a standard $60/$70 title.

Now, in a fresh statement issued to Inverse, Sony has claimed that the decision to release The Show 21 on Xbox Game Pass was MLB’s decision.

Rush: A Disney/Pixar Adventure (Cloud) – April 8

my kids loved both of the above with kinect on the xbox 360
i still remember coming downstairs about 4 hours after my son started rush and he was completely red and out of breath because of all the running and jumping - it's not like wii where you can just flick your wrist and pretend
i'd love to see what the controls are like on these...

Get 3 years of Xbox live gold (a bit less than 3 years because of the free months, which ever ends up being cheaper) and do the 1 for 1 conversion for $1 or ($16.99 in Quebec). Should end up costing you about $180 (for 3 years) which is the cost of 1 year of gamepass ultimate
