Hitman: Absolution and Deadlight free in April
April is right around the corner, bringing with it the newest batch of Games with Gold titles. Starting April 1, Hitman: Absolution will be available for free for Xbox Live Gold Subscribers. Absolution is the most recent entry in the stealth franchise, seeing Agent 47 looking for redemption after being betrayed by the Agency. Become a deadly assassin, hiding in plain sight and finding creative ways to take out your targets.
The second game of the month is Deadlight, available starting April 16 and lasting until the end of the month. Randall Wayne is a survivor of a zombie apocalypse, fighting his way through the ruins of 80s Seattle. This sidescrolling platformer was originally released part of 2012’s Summer of Arcade, but did not live up to the promotion’s usual high standards (check out our review here).
Reminder: today is the last day to pick up Dungeon Defenders for free, so make sure you get it while you still can. The Game with Gold program has been receiving criticism due to its game selection, but recently Phil Spencer stated he has been working towards improving the program. What do you think of April’s titles?
