Punch, shoot, and jump the weekend away with the latest Xbox Free Play Days games.

Xbox Live Gold members and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members have three new games to enjoy this weekend as part of the latest Free Play Days promotion.

Heading the list is Tekken 7, the most recent instalment in the classic 3D fighting series. The game includes 30 fighters to choose from, fluid mechanics, and is guaranteed to provide some spectacular multiplayer moments. It’s the perfect pastime for these housebound times.


Next, we have Risk of Rain 2, the impressive roguelike metroidvania from Hopoo Games. The game includes the new Hidden Realms update and is also one to enjoy with friends.

Finally, as we reported yesterday, it’s Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint from Ubisoft. The game’s troubled launch is well-documented – hence the slightly sniffy ‘half’ remark in our title – but Ubisoft rarely abandon their games, and the improvements can already be seen. Worth a try for free, right?

All three games are available to play until 11:59 pm on Sunday, March 29, 2020. All progress and achievements earned can be carried over to a purchased copy and there are some discounts available to tempt you.

Even more free games

If you’re looking for something else to play, we’ve noticed a few other freebies on offer. Square Enix has released a free demo for Life is Strange Season 2 (also available on PC and PS4), and PC gamers could do worse than checking out the free play weekend for Cities: Skylines on Steam. Nintendo Switch Online members can also play colourful punchy game Arms for free until April 6.
