Xbox Live Gold Members Can Jump into For Honor, XCOM 2, and Just Cause 3 For Free This Weekend

Head into the weekend with big gaming plans. 


Need something to play this weekend? If you're an Xbox Live Gold member, there's an abundance of fun stuff to play for free coming up. You can choose from For Honor, XCOM 2, and Just Cause 3 to download and play for free for a limited time, then buy at a deep discount, just in case you decide one of the three (or all of them!) is something you can't live without.

Each game has a bit of a different timeframe as far as when you can expect to be able to play. To get them, you'll click on the Gold Member area of your dashboard or download each game from the Microsoft Store to go to your system and go from there.

Today all the way through 12 AM PT on May 3, players can get started in For Honor. You can choose to play XCOM 2 instead, which has a free period that will last until May 6 at 11:59 PM PT. As far as Just Cause 3 goes, you've got until May 6 at 11:59 PM PT to jump into your own personal wingsuit and glide.

Just in case you find something you love about every single one of these titles, you can also pick them up as part of this week's Deals with Gold and the Spotlight sale.

Don't act like you didn't already have way too much to play already, though. With excellent titles like God of War out now, and other awesome adventures like Detroit: Become Human coming later this month, you've got to get in some of your backlog completion where you can.
