It appears that Xbox Live Gold subscribers will be able to get Hitman: Absolution for free as part of the Xbox Live Games With Gold program. The game will be available to the users starting from 1st April.
Xbox Live Games With Gold has usually been criticized with having a weaker lineup compared to the PS+ offerings, and while Hitman: Absolution might seem like a neat addition to the Games with Gold library, it was already available on PS+ last year. This is one of the 2 games to be released in April, the second one will be made available from 16th April.
Update: The second game for April is Deadlight. It will be available from 16th April and onwards.
Xbox Live Games With Gold for the month of March included two games, Civilization Revolutions and Dungeon Defenders. The month of March started with Civilization Revolutions and concluded with Dungeon Defenders.
It has been rumored that Microsoft will expand the Games with Gold program to Xbox one in June. As it stands, this program is only available for Xbox 360 users, but Phil Spencer ensures that Xbox One will be getting Games with Gold ‘fairly soon’.
