The latest Xbox One Free Play Days promotion features two new games, including The Sims 4. Trust us, you’ll need more than a weekend.
The Sims 4 is a big game, a fun game, and, for its keenest players, almost a way of life. Speaking as someone who has put over 200 hours into Animal Crossing: New Horizons without even thinking about it, there is something both comforting and compelling about life simulation games. If you like experiences where the most mundane of tasks gives as much pleasure as saving the universe, The Sims 4 is worth a look.
The Sims 4 is now free to play on Xbox One until Sunday, July 12 at 11:59 pm. That’s just enough time to scratch the surface of the game and see if grabs you. There’s a 75% discount on the standard edition to tempt you into a full purchase. There are also savings to be had on many of the game’s expansions and content packs. Just make sure you have plenty of free time in the calendar.
Online sandbox RPG Citadel Forged is also free to play for the next four days. Again, it’s probably just enough time to see if you click with the game’s loop of heroic activities and busywork.
Save progress and achievements in both titles are carried over to the purchased copies.
