GamesBeat Summit 2022 returns with its biggest event for gaming leaders on April 26-28. Reserve your spot here!
Xbox revealed in the first half of April which lineup of games it will add to Game Pass. The headliners for the next two weeks include MLB The Show 22, Chinatown Detective Agency and Life is Strange: True Colors, among others.
Game Pass users will get their first batch of games today, with the launch of Cricket 22 and MLB The Show 22. Both are available on cloud and console. MLB The Show 22 is also a day one launch.
The other games launching this week are the adventure game Chinatown Detective Agency (a launch the other day of this week), Dragon Age 2, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare and Star Wars: Squadrons. All four games will launch on April 7. The latter three will launch in the cloud, while Chinatown Detective Agency will launch in the cloud, console and PC.
The second batch of games will be launched next week. On April 12, Life is Strange: True Colors will launch on the cloud, console and PC. Two other additions on that day are Panzer Corps 2 and The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk, both of which are coming to PC. Lost in Random will also launch on the cloud, console and PC on April 14.

As usual, we are sacrificing games for new additions. One of the games leaving Game Pass is MLB The Show 21. The others are Rain On Your Parade, The Long Dark, and Pathway. They’re all leaving Xbox Game Pass on April 15.
It should be noted that this is the first time Xbox has announced additions to Game Pass following the unveiling of the new PS Plus update. The two services draw comparisons, of course, and Sony also announced April’s additions to PS Plus last week.
