Xbox Live Gold subscribers can download two additional free games this weekend, one of which comes with an additional Xbox Series X optimization feature.
This is on top of the existing collection of titles that can be added to your library at no additional charge. The only downside is that while Xbox Game Pass can also take advantage of this new deal, some of the included titles are already available as part of the service.
But for everyone else, it enhances the welcome after the lackluster show from Games With Gold.
Free Xbox Live Gold Game Promotion for the Weekend
Microsoft has confirmed that Xbox Live Gold subscribers can download and play two additional games this weekend and play them for a limited time. This includes the ability to add Football Manager 2022, and Grow: Song of the Evertree. These games will remain available to play until around 8am GMT on Monday, April 11th, and also come with a special discount this weekend for those who want to keep playing.
This offer is open to those who use Games With Gold and Xbox Game Pass, but it does come with a downside. If you already have an Xbox Game Pass, there is a lot of Football Manager content available to play already. However, Grow: Song of the Evertree cannot be found in either service and offers something new to experience on Xbox One and Xbox Series X.
To download on console, Xbox subscribers can click the Subscriptions tab in the Xbox Store and enter the Gold Members Area to locate their set of Free Play Days on their Xbox One or Xbox Series X | S. Full descriptions of both games can be found below:
