Harold Halibut headlines Xbox Game Pass for April 2024

Xbox Game Pass is getting a strong array of new games to kick off April 2024.
Harold Halibut, from Slow Bros. game of the same name.

The first wave of Xbox Game Pass titles for April 2024 have been revealed, and it’s a pretty stacked list to kick off the month. Technically headlining the pack is Lego 2K Drive, a fantastic open world racing game, but the real meat is in the indie games. Handmade adventure game Harold Halibut is arriving day one on Xbox Game Pass this month, as is cosy puzzle game, Botany Manor.

Beyond these picks, the excellent Lil Gator Game is also coming to Xbox Game Pass this month, as is snappy strategy game Superhot: Mind Control Delete. It’s a veritable smorgasbord of solid indie hits, and potential future hits. If you’ve got any of these games in mind, April will be a good month to be an Xbox Game Pass subscriber.
