Recent Xbox One exclusive is free to play this weekend

Three more games are free to play on Xbox One this weekend, including a recent Xbox One exclusive.

Bleeding Edge - Xbox One
Ninja Theory

The latest Xbox Free Play Days promotion includes a recently released Xbox One console exclusive.

Three new games are free to play this weekend for all Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members.

Kicking things off is Ninja Theory’s Bleeding Edge. The online multiplayer combat game was only released last month – on Xbox One and Windows 10 – and was reasonably well received. The world isn’t wanting for character action games right now, but Bleeding Edge‘s focus on melee combat might help it find an audience.

The second Free Play Days title needs little explanation. Madden NFL 20 is the latest entry in EA’s long-running football franchise. We expect that if you like the sport, you’ll like the game. Honestly, no one on the Thumbsticks staff has the foggiest idea. Anyone for cricket?

Finally, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is a colourful 3D arena brawler based on the popular anime and manga series. There are 100 playable fighters to try, each with their own unique move sets. That should take up most of the weekend

All three games are free to download until midnight on April 26. All progress and achievements can be carried over to purchased copies. As luck would have it, there are some new Xbox Digital Game Store discounts also available for each title.
