Weekend Console Download Deals for Feb. 11: Riders Republic free weekend

If you're aching for an extreme sports fix, Riders Republic has you covered and it's free to play on PlayStation and Xbox this weekend.


With the Winter Olympics happening right now, extreme sports might be at the forefront of your mind. Fortunately, there's a game that might scratch that itch. It's Riders Republic, one of the better games of 2021. If you're not convinced, there's a free weekend going down right now for PlayStation and Xbox owners, so grab your skis, your snowboard, or whatever else and dive in!

Elsewhere, depending on your perspective, this is either Valentine's Day weekend or Super Bowl weekend. If you're looking at this as Valentine's Day weekend, you're going to want some games to play with your significant other. Even if you don't want to spend money, PlayStation has you covered. There are free weekends lined up for NBA 2K22, Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout, and Monster Hunter World and you do not need a PlayStation Plus membership to participate. If you're more into football, you'll want to check out the Sports Sale over at Xbox, which has the best of the EA sports franchises, as well as non-ball sports like Descenders.

Nintendo has a few major sales happening this weekend, too. Life is Strange: True Colors and Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Cloud Version are both on sale, as is the full Activision Blizzard catalog on Switch. Yes, that includes Diablo 2: Resurrected.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
