These Awesome Xbox One Games Are Free To Play All Weekend

Borderlands, Starlink: Battle For Atlas, and more are available to Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass Ultimate members for free this weekend.


The weekend is fast approaching, and if you need a game to help you kill the time while you're stuck at home, then there are a handful of titles available completely for free on Xbox One. Whether you're a fan of shooting hordes of enemies or just hacking and slashing your way through them, there are games for you. And if you've ever dreamed of being a racecar driver or a deep-space pilot, then you could have quite the adventurous weekend ahead of yourself.

Borderlands 3: Game of the Year Edition is completely free to play this weekend, and if you want to continue playing past April 23, then you can snag it for $15 this weekend--the sale ends on April 20. It includes all of its DLC as part of the GOTY package, so you'll be able to play everything ever released for the first Borderlands game.

Now Playing: Borderlands: Game Of The Year Edition - Official Features Trailer

Starlink Atlas is also free on Xbox One this weekend, and while it's a game that puts an emphasis on real-world toys, you don't actually need the customizable model ships to enjoy yourself--though you can always snag them for pretty cheap at some retailers. You fly through space, visit planets, and complete missions. Starlink's Standard edition is $15 and comes with four ships, six pilots, and twelve weapons, while the Deluxe edition is $24 and bundles all of that with 14 more DLC packs full of new ships, pilots, and guns.

F1 2019 and Warhammer: Chaosbane are both available to play for free until April 19. The former is an excellent Formula One racing game that our F1 2019 review says is "yet another strong step forward for the now decade-long franchise" Warhammer: Chaosbane, on the other hand, is a hack-and-slash action-RPG set in the Warhammer universe. It's playable in both single-player and multiplayer settings with online and split-screen co-op.

If you're not an Xbox Live Gold or Game Pass Ultimate subscriber, then Microsoft has a great deal to become one. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is currently $1 for your first month. It comes with two huge libraries of games for Xbox One and PC as well as an Xbox Live Gold membership that gets you even more free games.

Those who want more to do this weekend should check out all of the free games you can claim right now. We've also got an excellent guide on all the best TV, movies, and games for social distancing.
