Starting off the month of April on a high note, Microsoft just announced the addition of 2 big AAA games coming to the Xbox Game Pass. Starting April 1st, Outriders will be available right away for Xbox Game Pass members, and for the first time, Sony’s exclusive title MLB The Show 21 will be available on the launch day, April 20.
Just last month Microsoft had finally added loads of Bethesda titles (20 games) and EA Play finally became accessible to Game Pass holders. Microsoft also made more than 16 Xbox and Xbox 360 games including games like Oblivion, and Fallout New Vegas available for Game Pass users via the backward-compatible program.
Let’s have a look at the two games being added to the Game Pass this month.
MLB: The Show ’21
For the first time, one of Sony’s exclusive game MLB: The Show 21 is making its way on the Xbox platform, and that too on the launch day. For those unaware of the game, MLB is a virtual baseball game that has been exclusive to Sony’s PlayStation since its first release in 2006.
MLB The Show 21 rockets the franchise onto the next generation of video game consoles with a huge range of improvements, enhancements, and optimizations such as pinpoint pitching, brand new fielding mechanics, and various gameplay styles to choose from.
Sci-fi Looter-Shooter Outriders is another game making its way on the Xbox Game Pass starting April 1st.
Outriders is a cooperative role-playing third-person video game developed by People Can Fly Studio and published by Square Enix. It was released on April 1st, and since its release, the game has received a somewhat lukewarm response from the gaming community. The game is a mixture of Destiny and Division. While the gunplay and powers feel extremely satisfying the game currently lacks in content. While the base is strong, the lack of content garnered the game a lukewarm launch. Although the developers have ensured more updates are on the way that will fix bugs and add new stuff to the game.
Xbox Game Pass holders are in luck as they can play the game from day-1 for a small monthly fee and make their buying decision later on.
