The Witness and Assassin’s Creed Syndicate are April’s Games With Gold

Yes, you read that correctly, The Witness and Assassin’s Creed Syndicate are your Xbox One Games With Gold for April 2018. Both games were released in 2016, and were both reviewed extremely well here on TiX, with The Witness getting a stonking score of 9.9, and Assassin’s Creed Syndicate getting an 8.8! With those scores on the doors surely this is the best month ever for the Games With Gold program!

The Witness is available from 1st April through to the 30th, and Assassin’s Creed Syndicate from April 15th to May 15th. For the Xbox 360 owners amongst us, and available on the Xbox One via the magic of Backwards Compatibility are Cars 2 (April 1st to 15th) and Dead Space 2 (April 16th to 30th).

The Witness – You wake up, alone, on a strange island full of puzzles that will challenge and surprise you. You don’t remember who you are, and you don’t remember how you got here, but there’s one thing you can do: explore the island in hope of discovering clues, regaining your memory, and somehow finding your way home. The Witness is a single-player game in an open world with dozens of locations to explore and over 500 puzzles. This game respects you as an intelligent player and it treats your time as precious. There’s no filler; each of those puzzles brings its own new idea into the mix. So, this is a game full of ideas.

The Witness confirmed for Xbox One

The Witness released as a timed exclusive for PS4 earlier this year and it seemed that a port would soon make it’s way to Xbox One – this was unfortunately denied by president of Thekla Inc., Jonathan Blow. Now it seems that The Witness will indeed come to Xbox One – launching September 13.

IGN first caught wind of the news, now Xbox Wire have confirmed the release I’m ready to get excited for its imminent release. The open puzzle world will strike a chord with those who played the excellent PC puzzler Myst.

We’ve gotten lots of requests to bring The Witness to Xbox One. People tweet at me about this all the time! So we are happy to say that this is happening soon: The Witness will be downloadable on Xbox One starting September 13, 2016.

The Witness comes to Xbox One in September

Jonathan Blow has revealed to IGN that his latest game, The Witness, will be coming to Xbox One in September.

Thekla Inc. are aiming for a release date of September 13th, and say that the Xbox One version won’t differ from its PC or PS4 versions.

There are some technical differences, but it’s basically the same game,

Blow told IGN,

I feel like that would kind of… mess up the game,

Release date targets don’t always hold true but here’s hoping we’ll see The Witness hit Xbox One shortly.
