This weekend is for playing three wildly different free games on Xbox.
Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, Age of Wonders: Planetfall and Stellaris: Console Edition are free for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members all weekend long as part of Xbox Free Play Days.
The deal began today at 12:01 a.m. (PT) and runs through Sunday at 11:59 p.m.
In an official post on Xbox Wire, Vincent Wang, product marketing manager at Xbox, laid out the pricing model for players who want to continue with the games after the weekend is over. Here are those prices:

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.
