It looks like April will be getting off to a pretty good start for Xbox releases, with a total of nine games coming to Xbox this week. A wide range of genres are represented in this week’s releases too, so there should be something new here to suit most tastes.
Legal Dungeon – April 5
A game about organizing police documents. This text based title will have players sifting through a labyrinth of evidence to find justice and deliver a verdict in eight separate cases ranging from petty theft to the ultimate crime: murder.
LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga – April 5
This new LEGO Star Wars game allows players to relive all nine of the films, but with a light tone and whimsical humor. A playable Obi-Wan Kenobi is exclusive to the digital edition.
MLB The Show 22 – April 5
The boys of summer are back in a new game for 2022, and this time its coming to Xbox Game Pass when it releases on the 5th. The game features a bevy of gameplay modes, cross platform play and a tweaked Stadium Creator with a more streamlined interface.
Replica – April 5
In this mobile phone hacking simulator, which seems to be set in some kind of dystopian surveillance state, players will have to investigate the contents of a stranger’s phone to find any evidence of terrorist activity, all under the supervision of the state’s national security agency.
Outbreak: Contagious Memories – April 6
An homage to classic survival-horror games like Silent Hill and the early Resident Evil series, Outbreak: Contagious Memories embraces the survival elements of the genre by limiting what the player can carry, and rewarding keen observation of environmental clues.
Z-Warp – April 6
Z-warp is a vertical shmup with a retro-inspired pixel art visual style and intense bullet hell action. In it, players will have to navigate a hellish, alien-infested spacescape to find an experimental, time-warping spaceship that disappeared on its maiden voyage.
The highly anticipated remaster of the classic PlayStation 1 jrpg Chrono Cross, the Radical Dreamers Edition also includes the text-based adventure game Radical Dreamers – a sort of prologue to Chrono Cross which has never been previously released in the U.S.
Slipstream – April 7
A racing game with an 80s synthwave aesthetic and cars from the same period. A unique little racer with a drift-tacular driving style reminiscent of classic games like Outrun.
Whiskey and Zombies – April 7
Just as the title implies, players will have to shoot and scavenge their way through the deep south in order to find safety in a world overrun by zombies. The only thing that can kill the zombie virus? Moonshine Whiskey, and players will have to chug large quantities of the stuff in order to survive.
So that’s it for the week in Xbox. It looks like a pretty solid lineup overall, even if there are no AAA titles releasing this week. All these games are playable on both Xbox One and Series X/S.
