An excellent strategy game is free to play on Xbox right now

Just one game is included in this week’s Xbox Free Play Days event, but it’s a good one.

Just one game is included in this week’s Xbox Free Play Days promotion, but it’s a good one.

Kingdom Two Crowns might not be immediately familiar to some of our readers, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth grabbing the opportunity to play it for free on Xbox consoles this weekend.

Taking on the role of a monarch riding this trusty steed, players must build up their kingdom, recruit loyal subjects, and thwart the approach of naughty Greed creatures.


Kingdom Two Crowns balances strategy and resource management to create a distinct experience, resplendent with character and engaging gameplay. The campaign is playable solo, but we recommend trying the fun drop-in/drop-out two-player co-op mode.

This exquisite game is free to play for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers until midnight on Sunday.

As always, you can grab a discount on the game for a limited period. The standard edition is reduced by 40%, and there’s a 70% saving on Kingdom: New Lands. All progress and achievements from the free play period carry over to purchased copies.

Kingdom Two Crowns Xbox Discounts

  • Standard Edition – 40% off
  • New Lands – 70%
