The latest Xbox Free Play Days promo features a top gear racing game, a top chef knockabout, and a tabletop RPG spin-off.

Here’s a quick reminder that Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass subscribers can download three more games to play for free this weekend.

Is NASCAR Heat 5 a great game? It’s a fair question, and it’s quite possibly not. However, if you’re a NASCAR fan, it’s as close as you get to having an oval in your living room. Last year’s sim from 704Games features a full career mode, four NASCAR competitions, and a range of customisation options.

Also free to play on Xbox is Ghost Town’s culinary chaos simulator, Overcooked! 2. The game needs little introduction at this point other than it’s absolutely brilliant and best served with friends.

Finally, Owlcat’s Pathfinder: Kingmaker is one for players who love classic computer RPGs like Baldur’s Gate and Neverwinter Nights. The game isn’t shy about its influences, but it also brings a host of new ideas to the table.

All progress and achievements can be transferred over to purchased copies of each game. Here are details of some timely discounts.
