April Fools’ Day 2024 Gaming Roundup

It’s April Fools’ Day once again, and you know what that means: a ton of joke announcements from some of your favorite gaming publishers and developers.

Here, for your perusal, is our roundup of the best gaming April Fools’ Day gags we’ve seen so far.

Deep Rock Galactic‘s real-life loot bug

Did you know that Deep Rock Galactic‘s loot bug is actually based on a real creature? It’s true, and it’s one unfortunate Ghost Ship employee’s job to take care of the titular critter.

I wouldn’t want to meet this thing in a dark cave.

All hail Medieval Dynasty‘s goose

Medieval Dynasty‘s April Fools’ gag is perhaps a little more mysterious and engaging than most. 

It invites you to solve a riddle involving “a majestic and almighty Goose” and to use your “Oxbow expertise” to decipher the puzzle. Why not head into the game and see what you can dig up?

War Thunder demands you witness it

Military sim War Thunder is generally known as a pretty serious prospect, but its new event Mad Thunder is perhaps the most serious thing Gaijin Entertainment has ever produced.

Pokemon Sleep World Champions Tournament

Have you ever wanted to prove that you can sleep better than everyone else? The Pokemon Sleep World Champions Tournament is designed to help you do just that.

My Time at Sandrock‘s next game is simply…My Time

Pathea Games’ April Fools gag introduces a brand new game in the My Time series, simply titled My Time.

It’s a smartwatch-based life sim with some pretty amusingly complex rules, and the announcement post takes a swipe at aggressive monetization practices as well.

Arma Reforger plays on your Army Men nostalgia

Over in Arma land, Bohemia Interactive has “revealed” a new Arma Reforger mode by the name of Tiny Wars, and it should appeal to you if you have nostalgia for the Army Men series.

HoYoverse shenanigans

HoYoverse’s Genshin Impact and Honkai: Star Rail also participated in the April Fools’ Day shenanigans, although I’m not entirely sure that Genshin‘s event is purely a joke.

Genshin Impact revealed something called the Mondstadt Tourism Revitalization Project, while Honkai: Star Rail invites you to watch an epic trailer for a movie featuring Astral Express conductor Pom-Pom.

Yacht Club Games’ new skincare product

Shovel Knight developer Yacht Club Games got in on the fun by introducing a brand new skincare product, guaranteed to take pride of place in your routine.

Naraka: Bladepoint‘s deadly new weapon

Naraka: Bladepoint is well-known for its range of deadly weapons, but its newest addition will have even the most skilled players weeping and begging for mercy.

Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising‘s much-needed name change

If you’ve ever struggled with Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising‘s name, you’ll be glad to know it’s getting a much-needed name change soon, and the new name is much better.

Incidentally, Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising is also welcoming a new fighter to its roster soon, and this one definitely isn’t an April Fools’ joke.

Palworld‘s dating sim is 100% cursed

It might be a joke, but Palworld developer Pocketpair’s April Fools’ Day dating sim is beyond cursed. 

I’m pretty sure that Pocketpair has actually willed this project into genuine existence and that we’ll be playing it before you know it. Yikes.
