Xbox Game Pass April 2019

Xbox Game Pass is going from strength to strength and with such a strong showing in April 2019, the service is certainly worth the price of admission. Fans may be going crazy for Monster Hunter World, but so they should be. 

In our review, we wrote;

For the fans of the Monster Hunter series, you will be pleased. It’s got a massive list of improvements that speak for themselves.

For newcomers be patient, because once you crack through and get a handle on it it becomes a fantastic game

We scored Monster Hunter World a 9. In our review of Prey, we wrote;

Prey is undeniably a magnificent piece of science-fiction and a must-play videogame. It’s a slowly unfolding, complex psychological horror game that explores humanity’s need to evolve at any cost

We awarded it a 9.5.

The other four games included in April 2019 are also highly worth playing and should cover all of your bases. 

What do you think of these additions to Xbox Game Pass?
