Various release date announcements confirm that there are at least six day one games coming to Xbox Game Pass in April 2023.
There are already six games confirmed for the Xbox Game Pass subscription service in April 2023, even though Microsoft has yet to do the formal reveal. Microsoft likes to keep the focus on the new Xbox Game Pass games coming to the service in the very near future, which means fans likely won’t get a full view of the April 2023 games until sometime next month.
For now, Microsoft is still focused on the new Xbox Game Pass games for March 2023. Most of the games that were confirmed for Xbox Game Pass in March 2023 have already been added to the service, though subscribers are still waiting for Ni no Kuni 2: Revenant Kingdom to join the lineup on March 21. PlayStation’s MLB The Show 23 is coming to Game Pass on March 28, while Way to the Woods is still expected to join the service at some point this month as well, though its specific release date still has not been announced at the time of this writing.
Xbox Game Pass subscribers can check out the new Xbox Game Pass games for March 2023 while they wait for April’s offerings. To date, six day-one games have been confirmed for Xbox Game Pass in April 2023, with Everspace 2 coming April 6, Ghostwire: Tokyo joining the lineup on April 12, and Minecraft Legends hitting the service on April 18. Coffee Talk Episode 2: Hibiscus & Butterfly will be added April 20 and The Last Case of Benedict Fox will follow one week later on April 27. Homestead Arcana is coming to Xbox Game Pass in April as well, though it is still waiting on its specific release date.
New Xbox Game Pass Games for April 2023
- Everspace 2 – April 6
- Ghostwire: Tokyo – April 12
- Minecraft Legends – April 18
- Coffee Talk Episode 2: Hibiscus & Butterfly – April 20

Out of these games, the two most notable are arguably Ghostwire: Tokyo and Minecraft Legends. Ghostwire: Tokyo was a PS5 console exclusive for the first year of its release despite being developed by Microsoft-owned Tango Gameworks, whereas Minecraft Legends is a new strategy spin-off game of the ultra-successful Minecraft franchise.
The Last Case of Benedict Fox is another game coming in April 2023 that subscribers will want to keep an eye on. The Last Case of Benedict Fox is a new indie game that’s been turning heads since its reveal last summer. It’s a Metroidvania game with Lovecraftian horror elements that promise to provide a unique spin on the genre. Xbox Game Pass subscribers will find out if it lives up to the hype or not come its release date on April 27.
