Three more games are free to play on Xbox consoles this weekend.

This week’s Xbox Free Play Days lineup is headlined by Madden NFL 21, the latest entry in EA’s venerable sporting simulation franchise. The game drew the ire of players at launch with a multitude of bugs and performance issues. Things have improved on the field since then, but the criticism directed at the game’s tone-death story mode still seems well-founded. If you’re looking for a game to put an Xbox Series X through its paces, it might be one to check out.

Active pursuits of the anime kind are on offer in Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker. Bandai Namco’s game features 4 versus 4 team-based gameplay in which eight ninjas battle across a range of environments.

The final Free Play Days title is the classic action-adventure sandbox, Terraria. With more than 30 million copies sold since it debuted ten years ago, there’s every chance you’ve sampled its creative delights. If not, make sure you find the time to play it this weekend.

All three games are free to play for Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass Ultimate members until midnight on January 31, 2021. All achievements and progress will carry over to purchased copies.
