Assassin's Creed: Syndicate is one of the most overlooked entries in the Assassin's Creed series.

The Xbox team announced April's Games with Gold a little later than usual this month, but it was well worth the wait.

First up on Xbox One is mind-bending puzzler The Witness, from Braid creator Jonathan Blow. For Xbox 360 owners (and through Xbox One backward compatibility), April kicks off with Cars 2: The Video Game, followed by Dead Space 2.

Waymo, Jaguar partner to build 20000 electric autonomous cars
Waymo, the former Google Self-Driving Car Project, already has a fleet of autonomous Pacifica minivans racking up the miles. The first fleet of Jaguar I-PACE EVs will be darting around a 100 square miles segment of the Phoenix metropolitan area.


The second Xbox One title of the month is Assassin's Creed: Syndicate, marking the first time Ubisoft found the opportunity to fund the extensive resources needed to animate a playable female character.

Each month, subscribers of the company's exclusive Gold service have access to two Xbox One and two Xbox 360 games they can download for free for either the entire month or parts of the month. It's a video game based on the movie, and is ideal for children.

Xbox Live Gold games works a little differently than the PlayStation Plus free games for the Xbox 360.

Featuring dual-protagonists Jacob and Evie Frye as they wrestle back control of a beautifully realised Victorian London from the Templar order one street at a time, Syndicate is a big ol' game - flawless for any time you might have off over Easter.

Dead Space 2 was a hit sci-fi action horror game from developer Visceral, which Electronic Arts shut down in October.
