Two Games Are Free To Play On PS4 And Xbox One This Weekend
There's no better price than free.
If you're looking for a new game to play this weekend, you have a few choices that won't cost you a cent. Two major games are having free-to-play weekends across Xbox One and PS4. Better yet, both of them are on sale, so you can try them for free and then buy them for cheap if you like them. Not a bad deal.
Injustice 2, the fighting game featuring DC comic book characters (and others), has a free trial on PS4 and Xbox One running April 12 - 15. In our 9/10 Injustice 2 review, we said, "NetherRealm has delivered a fighting game that can be enjoyed by new players and pros alike in ways that go beyond pure competition. It's a bar that every fighting game should meet, but one that has up until now seemed out of reach." The game will be on sale for 40% off on Xbox One and PS4.
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands is also free to play on PS4, Xbox One, and PC April 12 - 15. The promotion coincides with Wildlands's first big Year 2 update. It's called Special Operation I, and it features a mission with Splinter Cell's Sam Fisher. The game is also 67% off on Xbox One, PS4, and Steam. Note: Xbox One owners must have an Xbox Live Gold subscription to participate in the free play weekend and to get the discount.
And while this one's not free on PS4 this weekend, Xbox One owners can dive into the massive open-world RPG The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition, which is free to play on Xbox One now through April 15. This version of the game contains souped-up graphics, plus all the expansions released for the original. It's also available for half off on the Xbox store.
Those games should give you plenty of play this weekend, without costing you a cent. Start downloading them now so you can get the most out of them.
Editor's note: An earlier version of this story stated that only Ghost Recon Wildlands would be on sale. It has been corrected to note that Injustice 2 will also be on sale.
