All the free Xbox and PS4 games you can download in April revealed

XBOX and PS4 owners can bag two free games this month – if you meet the right criteria.

You'll need an Xbox Live membership or PS Plus subscription to qualify, which many players will already have.

Xbox Games with Gold – how to get FREE Xbox games

Games With Gold is Microsoft's answer to the free games you get with Sony's PlayStation Plus.

You can get the free games on Xbox if you subscribe to Xbox Live Gold – something that's required for online play.

Then, each month you receive four free games, two on the latest console and two for the previous generation.

These are yours to keep for as long as you have your Xbox Live Gold membership running.

The headline freebie for April 2020 is Project Cars 2.

This motorsport racing simulator came out in September 2017, and was particularly well-reviewed.

The other free game is Fable Anniversary, a 2013 remake of the iconic 2004 game Fable.

A major graphical update featured, but the main components of the game were kept identical.

This action RPG follows a questing hero who can learn skills, make moral decisions, and interact with a semi-open world.

PS Plus – how to get FREE PS4 games

PS Plus is a premium subscription service for PS4 gamers.

It gives you access to online multiplayer as well as exclusive discounts across the PlayStation Store.

But it also nets you two hand-picked PS4 games to download and play each month, which remain available as long as you're a member.

Many PS4 owners will subscribe to PS Plus for the multiplayer alone, so the free games are a pleasant bonus.

The first PS4 freebie is incredibly popular game Uncharted 4: A Thief's End.

This critically acclaimed title came out in 2016, and was developed by Naughty Dog – who also made The Last of Us.

You play as Nathan Drake, a former treasure hunter who comes out of retirement to search for long-lost loot.

The second freebie is Dirt Rally 2.0, which is the 13th title in the legendary Colin McRae Rally series.

As the name suggests, it's a racer focused on rallying and rallycross.

You compete in timed events on tarmac and off-road, in locations around the world.

The game came out on February 26, 2019, so it's fairly new.
