If you’re looking for something to do this weekend, then you might want to check out some of these free games for Xbox, PC, Nintendo Switch and PlayStation. The bulk of these free games are available on Xbox, where Microsoft once again brings back its Free Play Days promotion. Similar to video game rentals from yesteryear, Xbox Gold subscribers can play the games for free until Monday morning.
The Free Play Days weekend includes titles such as Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker, Bad North: Jotunn Edition, and Greak: Memories of Azur.
The titles are free to download and play from now until the morning of February 7. If you enjoy the games during the trial period, you can purchase all three titles at a discounted price.
The pick of the bunch is arguably Bad North: Jotunn Edition, which is a real-time strategy game where you defend your island from invaders.
Greak: Memories of Azur, on the other hand, is a hand-drawn 2D side-scrolling game featuring fast-paced combat and a boatload of clever puzzles.
If you’re a PC user, then you should head over to the Epic Games Store, where you can download the excellent Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair.
A must-have for platform fans, the Yooka-Laylee sequel contains a 3D overworld, mixed with side-scrolling levels in the style of Donkey Kong.
“Yooka & Laylee are back in a brand-new platform adventure from Playtonic Games! With their arch-nemesis Capital B up to no good, the buddy duo needs to spring into action once again to save the day.
“To thwart his evil plan of using a “Hivemind” device to enslave an entire kingdom of bees, our heroes need to take the fight to Capital B’s “Impossible” Lair.
“Things look tough, but with the help of Queen Phoebee and her Royal Beettalion , Yooka and Laylee might just have a chance!”
While there are no free games on PlayStation and Nintendo Switch as such, owners of these platforms can download a couple of new demos.
Chief among these is Tales of Arise on the PS4 and PS5, which is a must-have role-playing game from Bandai Namco.
The game features gorgeous visuals, a fantastic open-world and an engaging battle system.
“Team up with a cast of charming characters and engage in battles together,” reads the official Tales of Arise description.
“The series’ trademark action RPG combat returns as you engage a host of enemies with unique traits to uncover and exploit. Combine forces with your allies using Astral Artes and other attacks to take down even the fiercest foes roaming Dahna with big, hard-hitting combos!”
Over on Nintendo Switch, there’s a brand new demo for a new winter sports game, which launches just in time for the Winter Olympics.
Our Winter Sports contains events such as Curling, Snowboarding, Ice Skating and even snowball fights. Just head over to the Nintendo eShop to download your free demo.
