Xbox Game Pass has been compiling a great list of games that gamers can play for free as part of the subscription recently, and April will see a few more great additions coming to the service. Some of the biggest titles coming and returning to Game Pass are Rockstar’s hugely popular Grand Theft Auto V as well as Xbox newcomer MLB The Show 21.

This is not the first time that GTA V is becoming available on Game Pass. The popular open-world action crime game was previously on Game Pass last year before being replaced by Rockstar’s other fan-favorite Red Dead Redemption 2. Now Xbox gamers will again be able to experience one of the highest-grossing pieces of media of all time for free as part of Xbox Game Pass.

Another welcome addition to the service is MLB The Show 21. Not only will this be the first time that the award-winning MLB-licensed franchise will be making its way to Xbox, the game will launch on Xbox Game Pass on day one. This is great news for Xbox gamers, like myself, who have been waiting for a chance to get their hands on this series.

In addition to adding these games, Xbox has announced that they are adding touch controls to over 50 games that are available via Cloud Gaming that comes with an Xbox Game Pass subscription. This means that users will be able to use touch controls on Android smartphones or tablets to play certain Game Pass titles. The full list of compatible games can be found here.

These are just a couple of the highlights that will be coming to Xbox Game Pass this month.

Here is the full list of games coming to Game Pass in April
