We have a tricky decision to make with this week’s two Xbox Free Play Days titles.
So many games, so little time. That’s a mantra most video game players are familiar with. The deadly combination of a backlog and there only being 24 hours in a day means don’t always get to play the games we want.
It’s a situation not helped by Microsoft’s ongoing Free Play Days events. Here are two games we had no plan to play, but we can now enjoy for free this weekend.
But which one to choose? Woe is us.
First up is Diablo III: Reaper of Souls – Ultimate Evil Edition. The pack includes the Diablo III base game, plus the Reaper of Souls expansion set. If you want to continue with your adventure past this weekend, the Diablo III: Eternal Collection – which also includes the Rise of the Necromancer DLC – is available with a 67% discount.
Next up is Nickelodeon Kart Racers 2: Grand Prix from Bamtang Games. The family-friendly game features over 30 fan-favourite Nickelodeon characters, including SpongeBob Squarepants, Aang and Korra from Avatar, and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. In karts. What’s not to like?
Both games are free to download and play for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members until midnight on February 28, 2021.
If you like what you play, you can pick up either game at a discount for a limited time. All game progress and achievements will transfer over to purchased copies.
