Free Things For The Xbox Community To Do This Weekend
Larry Hryb, Xbox Live's Major Nelson
There are a number of deals and opportunities available to the Xbox Live community this weekend announced throughout the week, so I thought it would be a good idea to provide a recap. If you’re looking for something new to play, you might want to check them out – some of them are even free (but most require you to have an Xbox Live Gold account).
Free Things To Do This Weekend
Apex Legends (FREE) – A new free to play battle royale shooter from the team that brought you Titanfall. The game is free, but there are packs you can purchase to buy in-game cosmetic items. (And if single player is more your style, you can pick up Titanfall 2 for 85% off in this week’s Deals with Gold. This is an amazing game for an unbelievable price.)
Crackdown (FREE) – To celebrate the launch of Crackdown 3, we are giving away the original Crackdown for free! Play it on your Xbox One with Backward Compatibility.
Free Play Days (FREE) – Xbox Live Gold members can play The Sims 4, Halo: The Master Chief Collection, and Fishing Sim World for free as part of the Free Play Days event, going on now until February 10th.
Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 Private Beta (FREE, if you have access) – The Division 2 Private Beta will include both early game and endgame missions, and will run from February 7 at 1AM PT through February 11 at 1AM PT.
Sea of Thieves (FREE, if you have friends or contacts who can give you access) – Starting February 6 through February 13, everyone who owns Sea of Thieves or who has played it through a current Xbox Game Pass subscription will be able to invite up to three friends to try the game for free with the “Friends Play Free” event.
Devil May Cry 5 Demo (FREE) – CAPCOM released a new demo for Devil May Cry 5 that expands the previously released Xbox Exclusive Demo with the addition of a Punchline Devil Breaker and a customize option.
Play For Honor’s Wu Lin Faction (FREE, if you already own For Honor) – For Honor players who’ve held off on unlocking the four Heroes of the Wu Lin faction can play as the Tiandi, the Nuxia, the Shaolin, and the Jiang Jun for free until February 12.
Watch (or re-watch) Inside Xbox (FREE) – On February 6th, we livestreamed our first episode of Inside Xbox from 2019. The show is just over an hour long and includes special guests, a look at upcoming releases, a new Xbox One console bundle and controller announcement and a whole lot more.
