Original story: April's Games with Gold still haven't been officially revealed yet, despite the month kicking off tomorrow. However, not only have Fable Anniversary and Project CARS 2 been revealed as two of the month's free games – they're already available for free on the store for those with an Xbox Live Gold subscription.

Completionists among you should note that Fable Anniversary has an unobtainable achievement.

Despite the early switch-over, last month's remaining Games With Gold Batman: The Enemy Within and Sonic Generations are still available for free to subscribers until the end of today, March 31st. Shantae: Half Genie Hero remains free to subscribers until April 15th.

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
