Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Xbox Live Gold members can play new three games until Sunday at no cost.

Each of the three games demonstrates the value of Xbox Free Play Days as a marketing tool for publishers.

For Madden NFL 22, it’s an opportunity for a new game to reach a new audience that might be daunted by EA’s somewhat imposing football simulation. Hopefully, some of those players will enjoy the game enough to purchase a copy.


For Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, another Free Play Days outing gives the game a chance to top up the online player base and monetise some newcomers.

And for Blasphemous, the excellent exploratory action platformer from The Game Kitchen, it’s an opportunity for an acclaimed but older game in a crowded genre to have a few precious days in the spotlight.

And for players. Free games!

All three are available to download and play until midnight on September 9. 2021. All progress and achievements will transfer over to purchased copies. Here’s an update on some related discounts.
