Skip the latest Series X games in favor of these Xbox Live Gold downloads with Xbox Game Pass.
There are a lot of great Xbox Game Pass downloads for January, but it might be worth skipping them this weekend in order to try out these free Xbox Live Gold games.
In January, Xbox Game Pass received a slew of new downloads that can be played on Xbox One and Xbox Series X consoles, but you might want to put them on your Play Later List for the time being.
This is because there are a slew of other fantastic free games to play this weekend, making it the ideal time to try out some new and old titles.
Microsoft compiles a list of free games each month for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass subscribers.
While Free Play Days are limited-time events, they provide full access to popular AAA and indie titles.
Fans have no restrictions, and all earned points and purchased downloadable content (DLC) carry over if the game is purchased after the free period ends.
Fans can also download and play The Sinking City, Star Renegades, and Battlefield 2042 this weekend.
It’s a fantastic lineup with something for everyone, even if the XGP library is a little boring or overwhelming.
Battlefield 2042, which was only released a few months ago, is now available for free on Xbox consoles until Monday, January 10.
Free Play Days will end around 8 a.m. GMT, but there’s still plenty of time to explore the future battlefields until then.
If flying tanks into tornados isn’t your thing, the Sinking City and Star Renegades aren’t available on Xbox Game Pass right now.
Both games have been around for a while, but now is the perfect time to give them a try if you haven’t already.
They can be found on your console by going to the Xbox Store’s Subscriptions tab and entering the Gold member area.
Depending on your internet speed, downloading either should only take a few minutes and will provide hours of free entertainment with no restrictions on content.
One thing to keep in mind is that this new deal is only available for a limited time, so you should go to the Xbox Store right now to take advantage of it.
Star Renegades is a rogue-lite strategy role-playing game that pits players against randomly generated enemies.
