Additionally, if you decide to pick any of these games up after the demo weekend, you’ll keep your Gamerscore and any earned in-game achievements.

I haven’t played Stellaris or Age of Wonders: Planetfall but I can personally vouch for The Division 2. It’s a stellar shooter, and one of the best games I’ve played this year. Regular players have taken issue with developer Massive for failing to supply enough meaningful post-game content to keep them busy every night, but what is there is fantastic. Be warned, though: the story, inasmuch as it exists at all, is very stupid.
