Xbox Game Pass subscribers get the remastered version of Destroy All Humans!, MLB The Show 21, Phogs!, and a gameplay preview of dino-shooting Second Extinction over the last two weeks of April. Subscribers will also get cloud-streaming access to Xbox classics Fable Anniversary, and Fable 3.

Speaking of the cloud, Microsoft has also updated several games with improved touch-screen controls including Banjo-Kazooie, Wreckfest, Overcooked! 2, Double Dragon Neon, and more.

But the biggest highlight is Tuesday’s launch of Sony’s MLB The Show 21. PlayStation 5 users who preordered it have been playing since Friday; Game Pass subscribers should see it available right now. MLB The Show 21 even supports cross-platform play and progression with the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 versions of the game.

Game Pass members also get the updated version of Destroy All Humans! this month, which is a great remake of a very weird game.

Like most Game Pass releases, the rest of April’s titles are available on a combination of platforms, including Windows PC, Xbox, and Microsoft’s cloud-streaming platform to Android mobile devices.

Here’s a full look at what’s coming:

  • MLB The Show 21 (Cloud and Console) — Available Now
  • Phogs! (PC) — April 22
  • Second Extinction (Game Preview) (Cloud, Console, and PC) — April 28
  • Destroy All Humans! (Cloud, Console, and PC)
  • Fable 3 (Cloud) — April 30
  • Fable Anniversary (Cloud) — April 30

And here are all of the games leaving the service on April 30:

  • Endless Legends (PC)
  • For the King (Cloud, Console, PC)
  • Fractured Minds (Cloud and Console)
  • Levelhead (Cloud, Console, and PC)
