Hitman: Absolution, Deadlight join April's Games with Gold

Hitman: Absolution and Deadlight will be available for free to Xbox Live Gold members in April, Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb announced via his blog.

On April 1, users can grab Hitman: Absolution, typically priced at $19.99, until April 15. The game was released in 2012 by IO Interactive and Square Enix and is the fifth entry in the Hitman series, in which players reprise their role as Agent 47.

From April 16 - 30, users can pick up Deadlight, usually available for $14.99. Tequila Works' sidescrolling horror game, also released in 2012, follows a former park ranger searching for his family in the wake of a zombie apocalypse.
