Another month, another four games come to Games with Gold
Games with Gold has been going for so long it feels like they must have given away all the good games now and we’re left with, well, this lot. They aren’t terrible, but when you see what Sony is giving away each month you can’t help but feel a little disappointed. At least Game Pass is still bringing in the hits and day one titles like Outriders and MLB The Show 21.
As usual, you are getting two Xbox One games and two Xbox 360 titles (playable on Xbox One/Series X|S via backwards compatibility).
- Vikings: Wolves of Midgard ($39.99 ERP): Available April 1 to 30
- Truck Racing Championship($59.99 ERP): Available April 16 to May 15
- Dark Void ($14.99 ERP): Available April 1 to 15

*Truck Racing Championship is sold as European Truck Racing Championship outside of North America
Vikings: Wolves of Midgard
“Journey to the shores of Midgard, a world based on mythology with a fantasy twist. Join a notorious band of Viking warriors and take up the fight against the fearsome Jotan and the beasts of Ragnarok. Master mighty weapons including sword and shield, two-handed hammers, axes, and bows, and vanquish the fiendish creatures of Fimbulwinter which threatens to end all life.”
Truck Racing Championship
We reviewed this game, saying, “I really enjoyed the career mode, and the challenge of learning the handling characteristics of the big trucks was welcomed, but I couldn’t help feel the whole package was lacking. From the overly simplistic design of the menus, to the awkwardness of finding the leaderboard times in time trial, I was never overly impressed with FIA ETRC. I enjoyed the racing, and they did really well in conveying the feeling of throwing a big truck around a circuit, but as a cohesive package, I found it lacking depth and substance. For fans of the series, however, the adherence to the real world rules and regulations, and the quality of the racing, makes this a worthwhile purchase.”
I roughly remember this Xbox 360 game from way back when, and seem to recall thinking, “Meh, that was alright-ish.”
“Step into the Void, a sinister parallel world full of hostile aliens and deep mystery. Dark Void showcases powerful weapons, where a combination of ground-based combat and jetpack powered dogfights bring a thrilling dynamic. Experience the seamless transition between fight and flight in this epic adventure.”
Hard Corps: Uprising
Play the retro run-and-gun action title, Hard Corps: Uprising. Write your own legend in the grueling trenches of Arcade mode or upgrade and build up your soldier in Rising mode, where only the best of the best can survive and achieve ultimate victory.
