Which games are in the Xbox Free Play Days

There are three games included this weekend, each of which offers a very different experience to players.

Outward is the smallest of the games, it's an open-world survival RPG. It's a bit rough around the edges, but some people love it.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 offers an excellent chance to go pew pew, but also swish swish, and also question who your father may or may not be. Also, it's pretty and the multiplayer is fun.

Finally, Rainbow Six Siege is an excellent opportunity to jump into a game where everyone expects perfection from you and will shoot you if you're in any way wanting.

Claiming the games is as easy as going to the website and selecting them.

You can then download them to your Xbox One or Xbox One X. You should also be able to do it through the console store, which is probably the easiest way to make sure you're not going to accidentally buy anything.

The games are all a lot cheaper with an Xbox Gold membership too, so if you like them, maybe even pick them up and live your best life.
