Not one, not two, but three different Xbox One games are now free-to-play for a limited time, or, more specifically, are free-to-play for this weekend as part of Xbox’s Free Play Days promotion. So, if you’re not too busy playing Gears 5, you have some new games you can check out these next couple of days.
The games in question are Dead by Daylight: Special Edition, Just Cause 4, and TerraTech, all of which are quite notable releases. Best yet, if you enjoy any of the games, you can cop all three on the cheap, because all three are on sale to accompany the Free Play Days event.
It’s important to note the trio of games is only free-to-play, not free-to-download. This means after this weekend, you won’t own them anymore, and the only way you can play them is by buying them.
In other words, Xbox is essentially offering trials for the three titles. It’s also important to point out that Xbox Live Gold is required. If you aren’t an Xbox Live Gold member, the offer isn’t available.
That said, if you do decide to copy any of the games, you will be happy to know Dead by Daylight will be 50 per cent off, meaning it will be just $15. Meanwhile, Just Cause 4 is 67 per cent off, which knocks it down to $20. And lastly, TerraTech will be available for $11.
At the moment it’s a bit unclear if your progress carries over, but you’d assume it does. Microsoft does note though that players will keep the achievements earned during the trial periods.
We’ve tried to include a variety of genres, from shooters to RPGs to racing sims. So there should be at least one game on our list that tickles your fancy. If not then check back in with us in a few weeks – with every new release we’re updating and revising our choices. But we’ll only ever include the best picks.
Remember, it’s worth keeping an eye out during Black Friday and Cyber Monday as you may be able to pick up some great offers on these titles.
