ICYMI, one of 2019’s best games is free to play this weekend for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers.

This week’s trio of Xbox Free Play Days titles includes one of our favourite games from recent years. Remedy Entertainment’s Control won multiple industry awards and a deserved place on our Game of the Year list.

In our review, we said: “The combat is satisfying, the world is overflowing with secrets, and the atmosphere is second to none, ensuring Control is yet another stellar addition to Remedy’s portfolio.”

Both Control and Neopica’s Hunting Simulator 2 are available for Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass Ultimate subscribers to play for free until midnight on Sunday, April 17. Meanwhile, Bethesda’s popular MMORPG, The Elder Scrolls Online, is free to play until April 26.

Any progress and achievements earned during the free play event will transfer over purchased copies of each game. Here’s a roundup of the related discounts currently available from the Microsoft digital game store.
