Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Xbox Live Gold subscribers can play another three games for free this weekend.

First up is Bethesda’s sprawling MMORPG, The Elder Scrolls Online Tamriel Unlimited. As the name suggests, this isn’t a game to breeze through, but a few weeks should be enough to find out if you click with its blend of exploration and online questing. For players that continue with the game, a wealth of content updates should keep you occupied until The Elder Scrolls VI is released. Maybe.

More visceral online adventures are on offer in Hunt: Showdown. Crytek’s competitive first-person PvP bounty hunting game is a cult favourite and with good reason. It’s fast, furious, fun, and often inadvertently funny.

Finally, Steel Rats is an enjoyable indie action game with distinctive diesel-punk visuals that blends platforming, motorbiking, and combat.

Hunt: Showdown and Steel Rats are available to play until the stroke of midnight on April 4. The Elder Scrolls Online is free until April 13, 2021. As always, save progress and achievements will transfer over to purchased copies of each game. Here are some discounts for each title.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
