4 Xbox One Games Are Free To Play This Weekend

This weekend's Xbox Free Play Days event lets Xbox Live Gold members try out Warhammer: Chaosbane, F1 2019, and more on Xbox One.


Every weekend, Microsoft offers up free trials for several games as part of its Xbox Free Play Days event. If you're looking for something to play this weekend, you can check out four Xbox One games free of charge: Warhammer: Chaosbane, F1 2019, Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition, and Starlink: Battle for Atlas. This weekend's event runs through Sunday, April 19, and if you like what you play, you can grab the games for steep discounts to keep playing after the weekend. Free Play Days requires an active Xbox Live Gold or Game Pass Ultimate subscription.

Warhammer: Chaosbane takes the long-running strategy franchise and turns it into a Diablo-esque experience viewed from an isometric perspective. So if you're looking for a hack-and-slash RPG to play online with friends, Chaosbane is worth checking out. Set in the dreary and foreboding setting of Old World, Chaosbane has five differentiated classes, each of which gel together when playing cooperatively. Chaosbane is also discounted to $16 (was $40) right now, too, a great price if you wind up enjoying the loop.

Now Playing: Top New Video Games Releasing On Switch, PS4, Xbox One, And PC This Week -- April 12-18, 2020

F1 2019 is the latest entry in the official Formula One racing series from Codemasters. Racing fans shouldn't miss this one, as it earned a 9/10 in GameSpot's F1 2019 review. The 2019 racer is on sale for just $15 (was $60), a steal for an excellent racing game like F1 2019.

Next up is Starlink: Battle for Atlas, Ubisoft's toys-to-life aerial action game. Don't worry, you don't actually need the toy ships to play through the sci-fi campaign--digital ships work the same. Though Starlink didn't find the same success as earlier toys-to-life games, it's still a fun ride. It earned a 7/10 in GameSpot's Starlink: Battle for Atlas review, and you can grab it on sale for $15 (was $60).

Spring game sales

At this point, most Xbox users have probably gotten their hands on Borderlands, but if you haven't tried Gearbox's popular loot shooter, Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition is the obvious place to start. It's also on sale for $15 (was $30). The Game of the Year Edition provides includes all four DLC add-ons, giving players the full Borderlands experience.

In addition to the discounts on the four free-to-try Xbox One games, you can save big on family-friendly and couch co-op games in the latest Xbox One weekly sale.

If none of these games interest you, make sure to check out our running list of every free game available now. Steam also has a handful of games that are free to play this weekend, including Total War: Warhammer II. We've also compiled a roundup of the best TV shows, movies, and games to enjoy while social distancing.
