Starting today, Xbox Game Pass subscribers can play highly rated 2021 game Loop Hero on PC and consoles, with four more titles coming over the next two weeks. Instead of announcing all of the new Xbox Game Pass titles for any given month, Microsoft likes to narrow the time gap down to two weeks.
In addition to confirming that all games will be coming to Xbox Game Pass within the next two weeks, Microsoft also confirmed a batch of titles that will be leaving the service this month. On April 15, Xbox Game Pass subscribers will lose access to Life is Strange: True Colors, Moonglow Bay, Panzer Corps 2, Rainbow Six Extraction, The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk, The Long Dark, and The Riftbreaker. Quantum Break is also leaving Xbox Game Pass, but no date for its removal has been announced at the time of writing.
While it will be sad to see these games leave the subscription service, at least Xbox Game Pass subscribers have something new to look forward to in the next few weeks. Loop Hero is available to Xbox Game Pass subscribers starting today, while Xbox 360 game Iron Brigade is coming to consoles and PC on April 6. Ghostwire: Tokyo will be added April 12 on the cloud, consoles, and PC. NHL 23 will be available to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers through EA Play starting April 13. Finally, day one game Minecraft Legends is coming to Xbox Game Pass on April 18.

All three games should prove to be great additions to the Xbox Game Pass lineup, though April should have even more titles for fans to look forward to.
In fact, there are three other new Xbox Game Pass titles for April 2023 that were previously announced but not included in the latest roundup. Coffee Talk Episode 2: Hibiscus Butterfly will launch on Game Pass on April 20, while Metroidvania game The Last Case of Benedict Fox will launch on April 27. Homestead Arcana is also expected to join Xbox Game Pass sometime in April 2023, but an official release date for the game has yet to be confirmed.
