The Xbox Free Play Days initiative returns this weekend with access to free online multiplayer, and two free games to play on Xbox One.
Xbox Live players without a Gold subscription can look forward to three-days of free online multiplayer as part of the latest Xbox Free Play Days promotion.
The event – which is available on both Xbox One and Xbox 360 – runs from 12:01 a.m. PDT on May 17 to 11:59 p.m. PDT on May 2, 2018.
In addition, two full games are unlocked for Xbox Live members of all levels. From today until May 20, both Rainbow Six Siege, and Fallout 4, are free to download and play on Xbox One.
If you do go for Fallout 4, and need a helping hand to get started, check out our tips and tricks guide.
If you’re looking for something newer to play, this week has also seen a bumper crop of new games released on the Xbox One digital games store. Titles include Divinity Original Sin 2, Descenders, and Wizard of Legend.
