PUBG - Xbox One

Three (mostly) excellent games are free to play on Xbox One this weekend, including the iconic battle-royale, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.

Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members get three new games to play for free this weekend as part Microsoft’s latest Free Play Days promotion.

Top of the list is a game that needs little introduction. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds – or PUBG, as those in the know call it – is the tale of 100 thrill-seeking holidaymakers who journey to a beautiful island. We won’t spoil the story, suffice to say that one lucky tourist ends the trip with a delicious meal.


Bandai Namco’s visually glorious anime fighter Dragon Ball FighterZ is also free. The base game includes 21 characters from the series, including fan faves like Goku, Cell, Frieza, and Piccolo.

Meanwhile, players who think they would make a good POTUS can dive into Saints Row IV: Re-Elected. Volition’s game is the craziest in the series and, if nothing else, it offers some mindless escapism. It’s crude and juvenile but also thrilling and varied.

All three games are available to download and play for free until 11:59 p.m. PDT on May 10, 2020. If you want to carry on after that, each title is discounted on the Xbox Digital Game Store. All progress and achievements carry over to purchased copies.
