Xbox gamers, did you know you can download and play three games completely free this weekend?
If you’re looking for something to do, or maybe you need something different to play after exhausting yourself playing Elden Ring, then fear not, Xbox has you covered.
Once again, the console giant is holding a Xbox Free Play Days promotion, which is only available to those with an Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership.
Which, let’s face it, is probably most Xbox console owners these days.
As mentioned, players can currently choose between three gifts.
This includes the excellent award-winning Control, or Hunting Simulator 2. On top of that, there’s also the long-running massively multiplayer online role-playing game, The Elder Scrolls Online.
The Xbox Free Play Days promotion ends Monday morning April 18 at 7:59 a.m. BST for those based in the UK, but you have a bit more time to enjoy Elder Scrolls, which ends April 26 at 3 p.m. 00 BST.

Control – After a secret agency in New York is overrun by an otherworldly threat, you become the new director struggling to regain control.
From developer Remedy Entertainment, this supernatural 3rd person action-adventure will challenge you to master the combination of supernatural abilities, modifiable loadouts and reactive environments while battling in a deep and unpredictable world.
Control is the story of Jesse Faden and her personal search for answers as she grows into the role of director. The world of Control has its own story, as do the allies Jesse meets along the way. Jesse works with other Bureau agents and discovers strange experiments and secrets.
Hunting Simulator 2 – In stunning natural environments, choose your equipment from the best official weapons and accessories and go with your dog in search of various animal species in this hunting simulation.
- Explore the plains of Colorado, the Texas desert and the forests of Europe in vast open worlds.
- Hunt down 33 animal species in their natural environment using the best hunting techniques.
- Hunt animals with realistic behaviors and advanced artificial intelligence.
- Use your hound to track your prey. Labrador Retriever, German Shorthaired Pointer and Beagle, each dog has its specific hunting attributes.
- Equip yourself with over 160 weapons, accessories and clothing from the best brands, including Browning, Winchester, Bushnell, Kryptek and Verney-Carron.
The Elder Scrolls Online – Includes The Elder Scrolls Online base game and Morrowind Chapter. Join over 18 million players in the award-winning online multiplayer RPG and experience an ever-evolving story in a persistent Elder Scrolls world.
If you end up really enjoying any of the three games, you can also grab them for a discounted price from the Xbox Store for a limited time.
The Control is currently discounted to £7.49, while the Ultimate Edition is just a few pounds more for £10.49. On top of that, The Elder Scrolls Online is also available for the low price of £4.49. Hunting Simulator 2, on the other hand, will still set you back, with the Elite edition being reduced slightly to £33.49.
As always, any progress made during this free weekend will carry over to the full game if you decide to purchase it.
