Free Xbox One Games You Can Play This Weekend

You can check out three games for free this weekend on Xbox One, including Bandai Namco fighting game Jump Force.


This weekend's batch of Xbox Free Play Days games are live now through May 31. An Xbox Live Gold perk, Xbox Free Play Days give users a chance to check out multiple Xbox One games for free each weekend. When the weekend is over, you can keep playing by purchasing any of the Free Play titles at discounted prices. Right now, Xbox One owners can dive into Stellaris: Console Edition, Jump Force, and Hunt: Showdown.

Jump Force is a Shonen Jump fighting game featuring characters from Dragon Ball, Naruto, and One Piece. Featuring a roster of more than 40 characters and stellar, fast-paced mechanics, Jump Force is certainly worth checking out if you're an anime fan. It earned a 7/10 in GameSpot's Jump Force review. If you want to keep playing after the free weekend ends, all three of Jump Force's editions are on sale: The standard edition is $19.80, the Deluxe edition is $29.70, and the Ultimate Edition is down to $33.

Crytek's Hunt: Showdown is a first-person survival game that relies entirely on multiplayer. The objective-based gameplay tasks up to 12 players to hunt monsters across the swamps of Louisiana to earn bounties. But after successfully taking down a foe, you'll be hunted by other player-controlled characters who seek to steal your rewards. GameSpot hasn't reviewed Hunt: Showdown, but it holds a "Very Positive" user rating on Steam. If you enjoy the bounty hunting loop, you can snag Hunt: Showdown on sale for $24.

Lastly, strategy fans can check out Stellaris: Console Edition, which was featured in a Free Play Days weekend last year. The galactic 4X strategy game earned a 7/10 in GameSpot's Stellaris review. The Paradox title has a dizzying amount of depth and a well-realized world that makes the lengthy campaign a thoroughly engaging experience. While you won't have time to power through Stellaris in one weekend, you can grab the standard edition for $16 and Deluxe edition for $24.

In addition to this trio of free trials, there are a ton of free games right now that you can keep, and we're keeping track of every one, including Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, and a brand-new Devolver Digital game at the Epic Games Store. June lineups for PlayStation Plus and Xbox Games With Gold freebies were also recently announced.
