Best new Xbox Game Pass games: April 2022

You’ll rarely go wrong with the diverse selection of games on Xbox Game Pass, but there are always a handful of titles that stand above the rest — including, but not limited to, exceptional indie games, addictive multiplayer games, expansive AAA games, and Microsoft’s first-party titles and projects. These are the best new games that have recently arrived on Xbox Game Pass that you shouldn’t hesitate to play.

Bugsnax

Available: April 28 (Xbox Series X|S Optimized, Xbox One, Xbox Cloud Gaming, & PC)

Bugsnax started life as a quirky PS5 exclusive, revolving around a mysterious land filled with insect-like, living food. Now, Bugsnax is on Xbox consoles, is expanded with tons of new content, and is available through Xbox Game Pass from day one. It’s engaging, joyful, and surprisingly endearing.

Lost in Random

Available: April 14 (Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Xbox Cloud Gaming, & PC)

Lost in Random does establish its premise as “embracing the absurd” early on, but it really sells itself through its fantastic writing and genuinely funny humor. The game tackles a lot of difficult topics while weaving through its focus on random, and it’s an interesting story that’s sure to sit with you long after the credits roll.

Life is Strange: True Colors

Available: April 12 (Xbox Series X|S Optimized, Xbox One, Xbox Cloud Gaming, & PC)

The critically acclaimed narrative-heavy franchise continues with Life is Strange: True Colors, which tells a beautiful story populated by interesting characters. While the latest entry may still not quite live up to the absurd expectations set by the first Life is Strange, this is still an excellent game to experience through Xbox Game Pass.

Upcoming games launching on Xbox Game Pass

Microsoft gives us updates on games heading to Xbox Game Pass a few weeks before those games become available, usually twice a month. However, Xbox and ID@Xbox events toss aside this expectation to announce a flurry of games that are hitting Xbox Game Pass day and date, meaning they’re launching into the service when they land on Xbox platforms. That means day one access to all of these games for Xbox Game Pass subscribers, including some of the best upcoming Xbox games.
