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.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. 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 to meet those goals! 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.
