Microsoft’s Games With Gold lineup for April features games from a few major franchises alongside an Xbox One launch title, the company announced today.

Crytek’s Ryse: Son of Rome will be free all month long on Xbox One. The other game on the console is The Walking Dead: Season Two — all five episodes — which will go free from April 16 through May 15.

On the Xbox 360 side, Xbox Live Gold subscribers will be able to get a free copy of the original Darksiders from April 1-15. The final entry in the Assassin’s Creed Ezio trilogy, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, will be free during the second half of the month, from April 16-30.

Here are the download links, so you can get the games once they go free:

In the meantime, you can still pick up some of the March games. PopCap Games’ Heavy Weapon is free on Xbox 360, while Xbox One owners can download the multiplayer shooter Evolve and the horror game Layers of Fear.
