Battlefield 2042 Is Having A Free Weekend For Xbox Live Gold Members

Players can take Battlefield 2024 out for a test drive this weekend.


For Xbox Live and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers looking for something new to play this weekend, Battlefield 2042 is now free to play. DICE's latest shooter leads the charge in Xbox's latest Free Play Days promotion, alongside indie tactics title Star Renegades.

From now until 11:59 PM PST on January 9, you can see what Battlefield 2042 is all about for free, including taking its Portal mode for a spin. Any progress made in the game, including achievements and unlocks, will carry over if you decide to purchase the full game after the free weekend. The various Battlefield 2042 editions are currently on sale too, should you decide to make the jump.

Now Playing: Battlefield 2042 Video Review

If multiplayer shooters aren't your cup of tea, Star Renegades--a sci-fi, turn-based RPG that emphasizes quick-thinking--is also free to play this weekend. Should your characters fall in battle, you'll be warped to a parallel dimension to take what you've learned and fight once more against the overwhelming might of the Imperium. Unlike the other two Free Play Days titles featured this weekend, Star Renegades is not on sale and is currently $25.

Xbox initially announced the Lovecraftian horror title The Sinking City would also be free to play this weekend, but has since removed the game from its line-up.
