Xbox drops four games you can play free this weekend

Xbox drops four games you can play free this weekend

Looking for something to play this weekend? You've come to the right place

Your weekend entertainment has arrived. The latest edition of Xbox’s Free Play Days is here, bringing with it four new titles for us to enjoy for a limited time.

If you’re not familiar with Free Play Days, it’s exactly what it sounds like. Certain games are made available to enjoy for free for a limited time.

There is one catch. Three of the four titles require either an Xbox Game Pass Core or Ultimate membership, but the fourth is open to all Xbox users, no subscription required - so it’s not all doom and gloom.

The event is already underway and runs until Sunday 12 May, ending at 11.59pm PDT.

As for what games you can sample, Game Pass subscribers can enjoy Crime Boss: Rockay City, City Skylines - Remastered, and From Space.

Alongside this, all Xbox users can sample Destiny 2 expansions Shadowkeep, Beyond Light, and The Witcher Queen - with the added bonus of these being free until 4 June.

Take a look at our interview with Crime Boss: Rockay City star Damion Poitier.

Let’s begin by taking a look at Crime Boss: Rockay City. Developed by 505 Games and launched just last year, this one’s a co-operative heisting game that can either be played solo or with friends.

It features an all-star cast with familiar names including Michael Madsen, Chuck Norris, Danny Trejo, Danny Glover, Michael Rooker, Kim Basinger, Vanilla Ice, and Damion Poitier.

Despite this, Rockay City received mixed reviews from critics, landing a score of just 52. Many felt the game was outdated and poorly written.

Developers haven’t abandoned the project though, releasing a steady stream of updates and changes so it could well be worth revisiting.

As for Paradox Interactive’s Cities: Skylines - Remastered, this one also landed last year. A reimagining of the 2015 city builder, this souped up version adds a few new shiny bells and whistles to the classic that lets you build a thriving metropolis.

From Space launched slightly further back in 2022. Developed by Triangle Studios, this co-op shooter tasks you with teaming up with your friends to liberate earth from an alien infestation.

With over-the-top weaponry and fun stylised graphics, it’s a nice change of pace from other games on this list.

A little bit of something for everyone, as they say.
