Free Limbo Now Available on Xbox One

Free is a nice price.


Looking for a new game to play? The Xbox One version of Playdead's acclaimed 2010 puzzle-platformer Limbo is currently free.

This is just days after Fallout 4's Xbox One edition was made available free due to a pricing mistake. Whether or not this Limbo offer is planned or a mistake remains to be seen. You can grab the game from the Xbox Store right now.

The Xbox 360, PS4, PS3, and PC versions of Limbo are still selling for $10, their normal prices. In 2014, Microsoft handed out free copies of Limbo to early Xbox One adopters.

Playdead's next game is called Inside, and it is expected to launch on Xbox One later this year. It's possible we'll learn more about the game--only one trailer has been released to date--during Microsoft's E3 2016 briefing tomorrow, though this is not confirmed.

GameSpot's Limbo review scored the game a 9/10.

"The fact that you can finish the entire game in just a few hours is disappointing only because it's so difficult to pull yourself away once you've been sucked in," reviewer Tom McShea said. "Limbo is a superb adventure from beginning to end."
