April 2019 Xbox Games With Gold Includes The Technomancer and Outcast: Second Contact

Microsoft has revealed the four games coming to Xbox Games with Gold in April 2019.

Xbox One users will be able to grab RPG The Technomancer, and open-world sci-fi Outcast: Second Contact, while Xbox 360 players get the original Xbox version of Star Wars Battlefront II and Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2. Both 360 titles can be played on Xbox One thanks to backwards compatibility.

The Tehcnomancer will be available all month, from April 1 – 30, while Outcast: Second Contact will kick in on April 16 through to May 15.

As for the classic games, Battlefront II is available between April 1 and 15, and Advanced Warfighter 2 between April 16 and 30.

It’s a mixed bag this month. Our review of The Technomancer scored it a 4.9, citing a poor combat system, unconvincing characters, and bad progression, all of which spoils a complex story and enjoyable world.

It’s better news for the Xbox 360 games, though: Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 scored 9.1 thanks to its fantastic presentation and brilliant use of sound and visuals to create a compelling virtual warzone. And, of course, Star Wars Battlefront II is a firm favourite, despite its age, thanks to that ground-to-space combat.

The March 2019 Xbox Games With Gold lineup featured Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, Star Wars: Republic Commando, and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.
