Xbox Games with Gold for April 2017 Includes Ryse, Walking Dead Season 2

March isn't quite over yet and with another week remaining, Microsoft wouldn't typically announce new games in its Xbox Games with Gold program until the next month is just a few days away. Thanks to a recent leak from Xbox Austria, fans got an early peak at some of the bigger names coming next month including Xbox One launch title Ryse: Son of Rome and The Walking Dead: Season 2.

For up for Xbox One players is Ryse: Son of Rome, which will become available on April 1 until the end of the month, according to the leaked documents. Even though the Crytek developed title launched back in 2013 for the Xbox One, it remains one of the best looking titles on Microsoft's console and perhaps one of its most overlooked games as well.

Arriving on March 15, The Walking Dead Season 2 is the next part in arguably Telltale's most popular series of games. This download includes all five episodes in the season and is a good place to start before continuing on with the new season known as New Frontier.

For Xbox 360 folks, April kicks off with War with the former THQ and Vigil Games third person action game, Darksiders. One thing to note is that this download is just for the standard edition of the game and not the updated Warmasted Edition, which came with all DLC and improved visual presentation on PC and newer consoles.

Finally, the back half of the month sees Assassin's Creed Revelations become available until May 15, bridging the gap between the first Assassin's Creed protagonist, Altair, to the now aging Italian, Ezio Auditore da Firenze.

While fans wait for official confirmation from Microsoft, there's still time to grab a few of the free games offered this month including the Ultimate Edition of the 4v1 shooter, Evolve. For a complete recap of all the March games offered, make sure to check out our list.
