The latest Xbox One Free Play Days promotion features two amazing games. Pack a spade, a rubber duck, and maybe a ICA Proximity Concussion Device.
This week’s Xbox Free Play Days titles are among the best games we’ve played in the last four years.
Stardew Valley, the bucolic lifestyle and farming simulation from Eric Barone, is already the stuff of legend. It’s simple to start, but imaginative, flexible, engrossingm and increasingly difficult to stop playing. If you’re burned out on Animal Crossing: New Horizons, it’s the perfect replacement.
IO Interactive’s Hitman 2 is another game to offer players scope and space to express themselves through gameplay, although it’s not quite as relaxing. The game continues the studio’s impressive run with a series of inventive missions set in locations ranging from Miami to Mumbai.
Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members can download and play both games for free until 11:59 pm on June 28, 2020.
It’s unlikely you’ll see everything Hitman 2 and Stardew Valley have to offer in four days, so some digital game discounts are available. If you continue playing, all achievements and saved progress will transfer over.
Xbox Free Play Days Discounts
- Hitman 2 – Gold Edition – 75% off
- Stardew Valley – 30% off
If you already subscribe to Xbox Game Pass, check out the four new games added to the service this week.
