The latest Xbox Free Play Days event includes hit three games to try out until Sunday.
E3 2019 brought a slew of new game announcements for to excite Xbox One players, but until the likes of Gears 5 and The Outer Worlds are released, we’ll just have to make do with something from the pile of shame. If you’re stuck for something to play, this weekend’s Xbox Free Play Days titles are all worth a look, even Fallout 76.
Bethesda’s much-maligned RPG has steadily improved since release. The new Nuclear Winter battle royale mode was arrived earlier this week, and based on Bethesda’s E3 announcements, the game’s content roadmap is also pretty promising. If you like what you play, you can pick up the game’s standard and Tricentennial editions with a 50% discount via the Microsoft Digital Games store.
Also available is Ubisoft’s The Division 2. The action RPG is a game that will likely take much longer than one weekend to get to grips with, but it’s also discounted for the duration of the free play event. Phew.
Finally, LEGO DC Super-Villains is a must-play game for younger players, families, and part-time cape wearers. It’s also available with a 40% discount until Sunday.
To download each game, head to the Gold member area on the Xbox One dashboard. And have no fear, all progress and Gamerscore carries over if you buy your own copy once the event ends.
