Xbox Live Gold members can play WWE 2K18 and EA Sports UFC 3 for free on Xbox One, this weekend.
WWE 2K18 is getting a four-day free play event on Xbox One that runs from April 5 to April 9, 2018. The full game will be available, and all achievements and saved progress will carry over if you buy the game once the free play period ends.
To entice players into that purchase, WWE 2K18, and the WWE 2K18 Digital Deluxe Edition, are currently available with a 50% discount on the Microsoft Store.
If you prefer octagons to rings, you can also play EA Sports UFC 3 for free this weekend. A free trial for the game – timed to coincide with Saturday’s UFC 223 – is available on Xbox One from April 5 to April 9, 2018.
The trial allows access to five hours play time of the full game, including its Knockout Mode, UFC Ultimate Team, and Live Events. EA Access members get an additional five hours of play time. Again, all progress will be saved, and the full game is available with a 35% discount during the promotion.
Happy grappling. (Is that the correct term? I’m more of a Darts man, myself.)
