Xbox Game Pass Adds the Returning GTA V, MLB the Show 21, and More in Early April
Microsoft has revealed the titles they’ll be adding to Xbox Game Pass on PC and consoles in early-to-mid April, and it’s another solid lineup! Grand Theft Auto V will be returning to the service (it was briefly added then pulled in 2020) along with Zombie Army 4 and the cute new-release indie Rain on Your Parade. Of course, as already announced, MLB the Show 21 will also be a Day 1 Game Pass release this month.
Here are your early-April PC and console Game Pass titles:
