In case you missed it, here’s news of three great games that are now free to play on Xbox One.

Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members who are home for the weekend can enjoy three new games as part of Microsoft’s latest Free Play Days promotion.

Leading the pack is Gears 5. The full game is included, along with the all-new Gridiron capture-the-flag mode. It’s joined by mech battler Override: Mech City Brawl, and the complete first season of IO Interactive’s stunning Hitman reinvention.


All three games are free to play until midnight on April 12. One of last week’s Free Play Days titles, The Elder Scrolls Online Tamriel Unlimited, remains available to download until April 13.

Game progress and achievements can be carried over to purchased copies. And if you like what you play, some discounts are available to tempt you into that purchase.
