Xbox Game Pass in April 2021: MLB: The Show ’21, Outriders, new xCloud games and more. To start off strong this month, Outriders was available immediately on April 1 for Xbox Game Pass members on consoles. Then, Microsoft announced that MLB The Show 21 will be coming to Game Pass on launch day, April 20. It is the latest in a series of new features and updates on Game Pass.
For example, all Game Pass Ultimate members can now access 16 Xbox and Xbox 360 games through Xbox Cloud Gaming on their Android mobile devices, including games like Oblivion and Fallout New Vegas. While we don’t yet know what other titles will be coming to Game Pass in April, there are sure to be plenty of exciting new games ready and waiting to be announced.

Not only is this the first time MLB: The Show is appearing on the Xbox, but Microsoft went ahead and worked out a deal for Game Pass members to add it to the service on launch day, April 20. If you’re a baseball fan, until this season, your only option for playing virtual baseball has been exclusive to Sony’s PlayStation.

Recap: Xbox Game Pass in March
Let’s quickly recap how important March was in terms of Xbox Game Pass, with Bethesda finally tying the knot and joining Microsoft, 20 Bethesda games were immediately made available to Game Pass users.
Not only that, but Xbox Game Pass for PC has also received a boost, as EA Play is now a free add-on for PC users. To set the record straight, you don’t need an Ultimate subscription to play EA Play games on PC, just Game Pass for PC, which costs $7.99 per month. This meant the inclusion of some awesome titles on both console and PC, such as Star Wars Squadrons. We also saw great games like Octopath Traveler, Narita Boy and Yakuza 6 join the service.
