These PS4 And Xbox One Games Are Free To Play This Weekend

Planes, trails, and automobiles are going free for Gold on Xbox One this weekend.


Now that we're past the Black Friday and Cyber Monday weekend, we can start getting back to normal with a nice, relaxing weekend. Ubisoft hopes to help with this by offering a free-play weekend for The Crew 2 on PS4 and Xbox One. Microsoft is also offering a free-play weekend for Trailmakers to all Gold subscribers.

The Crew 2 is available to everyone on PS4 from December 5 until December 8, while both The Crew 2 and Trailmakers are free to play for Xbox Live Gold subscribers from December 5 at 12:01 AM Pacific until December 8 at 11:59 PM PT--unfortunately, no specific times were given for the PS4 version. If you want to keep the games after that, you can pick them up at a discount. Unfortunately, only the Deluxe edition is discounted on PS4, while all versions of the game are on sale for Xbox One.

To download them to your consoles, head over to their store page on the PS4 or the Gold member area on your Xbox One and select the game you want to install on your console. Alternatively, you can click the links below and install them on your devices remotely.

Our The Crew 2 review scored the game an 8/10, and while critic Edmond Tran was disappointed by the lack of multiplayer interaction, he still enjoyed the game quite a bit.

"I'll fondly recall both the tension of flinging sprint boats back and forth through the narrow, artificial canals of The Venetian in Las Vegas, and the easygoing satisfaction of an hour-long hypercar race from New York to San Francisco, where I listened to a podcast and enjoyed the rolling scenery," he wrote. "Despite its shortcomings, The Crew 2 still displays admirable strengths, which lie in its player-friendly features, freedom of movement, and its willingness to bend the rules in order to make things exciting and varied for an accessible, American-themed thrillride."

Trailmakers released earlier this year and, like The Crew 2, features racing and exploration by land, sea, and air. However, in Trailmakers, you create your own vehicles out of blocks. GameSpot doesn't currently have a review of it, but it has "Overwhelmingly Positive" reviews on Steam, so the Xbox One's free weekend is the perfect chance to try it out yourself.
