Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Xbox Live Gold members can play two more games for free until Sunday.
Free Play Days are just one of the many treats that subscribers to Xbox’s game services can enjoy. The weekly promotion is a middle ground between Xbox Game Pass and Games with Gold that does a decent job of highlighting overlooked games or giving online titles an influx of new players.
This week’s appearance of asymmetrical multiplayer horror game Dead by Daylight is surely designed to entice newcomers into the fold. Behaviour Interactive’s game is a supreme piece of horror hokum and well worth sampling, particularly with its new Resident Evil chapter, which includes a Killer, Nemesis; two Survivors, Leon S. Kennedy and Jill Valentine; and a Racoon City.
R.B.I. Baseball 21 is also free to play this weekend. It’s a perfectly reasonable recreation of America’s favourite pastime, but with MLB The Show 21 now available on Xbox – and included with Game Pass – it’s hard to recommend unreservedly.
Both games are available to download and play until midnight on July 11, 2021. All progress and cheevos will transfer over to purchased copies, which are currently discounted.
