Xbox: 3 free games to play this weekend, including an FPS from Bungie
Free play days are back For this weekend, Microsoft brings a new selection of video games that can be played for free over the weekend. So you can keep busy without having to spend an extra Kopeck.
It happens every week, more or less: Microsoft applies a free game weekend to several titles, which can be downloaded and played in their entirety for free for a certain period of time. The only requirement? Have an Xbox One or Xbox Series and be subscribed to Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass.
If you meet these requirementsthen you have until Monday, August 29 at 8:59 a.m. to dive into the worlds of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night and The Elder Scrolls Online. Also, Destiny 2 expansions can also be played for freeeven for non-Xbox Live Gold subscribers.
Finally, keep in mind that once the term has elapsed, the games will be paid again but a nice promotion will be applied for each of themso you can keep playing for less.
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night
This metroidvania comes out in 2019 and aims to be the spiritual successor to Castlevania. The comparison is quite legitimate, since the producer of the game is the same one who worked on the Konami saga from 1997 to 2008: we play as Miriam, a young orphan who goes to Gebel castle to confront him and, in the best of cases, get rid of a very special spell. The adventure is based on 2D levels with exploration and a gothic art direction, as is tradition.
The Elder Scrolls, the iconic role-playing game saga and absolute reference of the genre, is no longer in the limelight. With The Elder Scrolls Online, Bethesda has opted to transfer the concept to an MMO and the formula is working well: The Elder Scrolls Online is the first of its kind in the world to feature the great elements of the franchise, cult environments, and expansions galore to enhance the experience. And so it has been for years. You may enjoy it.
The latest from the Bungie studio is a monster of the gaming service and should be around for a while yet. It is, therefore, an FPS for single player or multiplayer (but especially multiplayer, if possible) that anchors its world in pronounced science fiction, exploration and action in abundance. With its gigantic content, seamless loot, and customization possibilities, it’s a classic.
