The Games with Gold program of Microsoft is back with the second round of April games for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members. As part of the subscription, members can now claim Truck Racing Championship for Xbox One and Hard Corps: Uprising for Xbox 360.

As usual, these older titles come with backward compatibility support, allowing newer generation consoles to also claim and play them. Truck Racing Championship is available to Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S owners, while Hard Corps: Uprising is up for grabs across the Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.

Use the direct links below to claim the games while being logged into a Gold-enabled Microsoft account:

The only official simulation that features all the unique characteristics of the ETRC and offers all racing fans a completely new driving experience: race a giant 5-tonne, 1,000-horsepower truck against 12 competitors while respecting the race rules to avoid penalties.

Thrilling retro run-and-gun action is back with a vengeance in Hard Corps: Uprising, a 2D side-scroller developed by ARC System Works that pays homage to classic Konami action series. Battle in the grueling trenches of Arcade mode, or the all-new Rising mode, where a point system allows you to purchase items and upgrades to help you achieve ultimate victory.

For those who missed it from earlier this month, the Xbox One game Vikings: Wolves of Midgard is still available as a Gold freebie, with it going away on April 30 to make way for the May games.

Keep in mind that Xbox 360 games claimed via a Games with Gold promotion will continue being available even if the Gold subscription is discontinued. However, claimed Xbox One games are only playable while the account has an active subscription.
