Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members can play another three games for free this weekend.
The Free Play Days continue for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members with three more games to try out this weekend.
First up is NASCAR Heat 5 from 704games. We’re no experts on the sport, but we like racing games, and the NASCAR community seems pretty positive on this one. Worth taking for a spin.
Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is up next. Fatshark’s first-person action game was well received by fans and franchise newcomers alike when it launched two years ago. If you missed it in 2018, it’s definitely one to try.
We also recommend this week’s final free game, Runner Duck’s Space Crew. This intergalactic follow up to Bomber Crew is another sparkling strategic survival simulation that’s packed with character and addictive resource management mechanics.
All three games are available to download and play for Live Gold and Game Pass subscribers until midnight on February 14, 2021. As usual, all game progress and achievements carry over to purchased copies of each game.
Here are the details of this week’s discounts.

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.
