Microsoft is unlocking ten hit games and online multiplayer for all Xbox owners—no Game Pass or Live Gold required. But if you want a chance to play Gears 5 for free, you gotta sit your butt on that couch ASAP. The Xbox Big Gaming Weekend ends on August 10th.
Here’s a quick list of what’s available during the Big Gaming Weekend. Most of these games are console-only, but Gears 5, Subnautica, and Ark: Survival Evolved are free on PC as well.
- Ark: Survival Evolved
- Black Desert
- Boderlands 3 (Ends August 9th)
- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (Multiplayer Only)
- Dragon Ball FighterZ
- Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited
- Gears 5
- Monster Hunter Wolrd
- Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker
If you don’t have Game Pass, I suggest spending your time on Borderlands 3, Black Desert, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and Dragon Ball FighterZ. The other games in this promotion are already free for all Game Pass subscribers. If you haven’t tried Game Pass, give it a shot, the first month only costs $1.
