The latest games coming to Xbox Game Pass in April 2023 have been revealed – and it turns out, subscribers are in for a pretty hefty month. Minecraft Legends is newly-launched on the service, and it’s set to be joined by a number of indie blockbusters in the coming weeks – including Coffee Talk Episode 2: Hibiscus & Butterfly, Cassette Beasts, and demonic possession adventure, The Last Case of Benedict Fox.

Redfall has also slipped into this second wave of monthly game announcements, although it technically releases in early May 2023.

Here’s everything coming to Xbox Game Pass in April 2023 (and slightly beyond).
