If you read our IRL patch notes on Twitter, you’ll note that it’s Spring and with that, it’s starting to rain and we’re not really a fan of that. Every day we go into a closet, pull out the yellow rain boots we promised our moms we’d use, and bike uphill in the early morning rain to get to the Xbox Game Pass office. These boots by the way… are really squeaky. The lone ray of sunshine in this wet, squeaky situation is that we have a gush of new games to rain down on Xbox Game Pass members. Let’s check them out:
Prey (April 11)
Good morning, Morgan. Prey joins the Xbox Game Pass library tomorrow, taking you from the comfort of your home to the treacherous depths of space. As Morgan Yu, you’ll have to use your wits, weapons, and strange powers to fight the alien threat that has overtaken the Talos I space station. Explore the station, upgrade your skills and abilities, and uncover the secrets of Talos I and the dangers within.
The Golf Club 2 (April 11)
Play a dynamic single and multi-player experience with unlimited possibilities. Take a swing on new, lush golf courses or create your very own!

Monster Hunter: World (April 18)
Enter a living, breathing ecosystem where players become hunters who seek and slay ferocious beasts in heart-pounding battles that unfold across the vast, ever-changing terrain. You are a hunter of the Fifth Fleet, tasked with investigating the mysterious behaviors of the Elder Dragons out in the new world. As a hunter, you must use your cunning and skill to track and maneuver targets throughout intense, evolving battles. Venture solo on quests or partner with up to three other hunters online for cooperative play.
The Walking Dead: A New Frontier (April 18)
Play as Javier Garcia, disgraced former baseball star now fighting to protect those he loves in a world plagued by the undead. As humanity is pushed to a breaking point, Javier finds his fate bound to a young survivor called Clementine. Thrown into conflict with the ruthless New Frontier, they must rely on each other to survive and find the family they’ve lost. Make choices that shape the fate of those around you, engage in thrilling action scenes, and explore beautiful comic book styled environments from “The Walking Dead.”
Life is Strange 2: Episode 2 (April 24)
“Run. From. Danger.” Brothers Sean and Daniel face another dangerous road during the heart of winter. As Sean continues to train Daniel’s growing telekinetic power, they’re faced with an unexpected road bump – Daniel’s gotten sick and isn’t getting any better. Still far from their destination of Mexico, the brothers have found shelter in snowy northern Oregon. Will this be the solace that finally keeps them safe? Sean’s key rule: “Hide your power” has worked for them up until now, but what happens if they’re turned over to the police?
Resident Evil 5 (April 25)
The Umbrella Corporation and its crop of lethal viruses have been destroyed and contained, but a new, more dangerous threat has emerged — somewhere in Africa, innocent villagers are transforming into aggressive and disturbing creatures. Featuring online co-op, players can experience this Resident Evil classic as either Chris Redfield or his new partner Sheva Alomar, as the duo must work together to investigate and stop whatever is causing the disturbing turn of events.
Look at those games! That makes the whole “biking uphill in the rain” thing a lot more worth it. We’re not sure how to make the games stop, so if you want to stay updated be sure follow us on Instagram and Twitter. We might throw a meme in there too. There’s also the Xbox Game Pass mobile app, which has fewer memes, but comes with real game notifications and helps you remote install to your home console. That way your games are ready to play when you are, and instead of rushing home from work to install a game, you’re rushing home from work to play a game. So much better.
Now if you’ll excuse us, we need a coffee to warm us up while we drip dry. *squeak* *squeak* *squeak* *squeak*
