The first wave of titles heading to Xbox Game Pass in April 2023 has been announced. Starting today, Loop Hero is available on console and PC. It’s a very addicting, roguelike deckbuilding game that is pretty unique. At time of publishing, it has over 28,000 user reviews on Steam with a Very Positive rating. I highly recommend checking it out if you like the roguelike genre and want something different.

Heading to Cloud and Console on April 6 is Iron Brigade, a tower defense shooter from Tim Schafer’s Double Fine Productions. Then on April 12, Ghostwire: Tokyo will be heading to Cloud, Console, and PC. Hockey fans can look forward to NHL 23 on Console, via EA Play starting April 13. Finally, Minecraft Legends is available day one on Xbox Game Pass for Cloud, Console, and PC starting April 18. The action strategy Minecraft spinoff features an online co-op campaign and competitive multiplayer options as players try to defend the Overworld from the destructive piglins.

Microsoft also wanted to remind Game Pass subscribers that Goat Simulator has returned to the Game Pass library. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers can also now claim their first two months of Peacock Premium Plus (offer valid for U.S. members only).

Here are the games that are leaving Xbox Game Pass on April 15:

  • Life is Strange: True Colors (Cloud, Console, and PC)
  • Moonglow Bay (Cloud, Console, and PC)
  • Panzer Corps II (PC)
  • Rainbow Six Extraction (Cloud, Console, and PC)
  • The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk (Cloud, Console, and PC)
  • The Long Dark (Cloud, Console, and PC)
  • The Riftbreaker (Cloud, Console, and PC)
