Double Xbox Games with Gold titles announced for April

Gears! Terraria! Black Flag! Child of Light! Pool! Army of Two.

Microsoft has confirmed the titles that will make up April's bumper helping of free games on Xbox 360 and Xbox One - if you're an Xbox Live Gold subscriber.

Two titles will be free for Xbox One owners from 1st-31st April: charming Ubisoft platformer Child of Light and shiny ball simulator Pool Nation FX.

Meanwhile, Xbox 360 owners will get shooter prequel Gears of War: Judgment and indie sandbox Terraria between 1st-15th April.

Piratical stabathon Assassin's Creed: Black Flag and naff co-op shooter Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel will then be free between 16th-31st April.

Microsoft has doubled up the freebies for April as a special offer - don't expect the same treatment every month.

The promotion comes as Games with Gold passes the 100m free titles downloaded, with over 5bn Gamerscore earned.
