Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Borderlands 3, and Dirt 5 are currently free to play on Xbox One and Xbox Series X consoles until the end of Sunday at 11:59 p.m. PDT for all console owners with an active Xbox Live Gold subscription.
The timing of this weekend’s Free Play Day promotion is particularly good for Halo: The Master Chief Collection as the title just launched its final major content update for the year which added a variety of new in-game content and features.
“To celebrate Season 8 and our final collection update for 2021, play Halo: The Master Chief Collection for free this weekend in Free Play Days,” Xbox’s Dean Shimabukuro wrote in a blog post. “Enjoy 100 tiers of new seasonal unlocks and content like new armors, a new matchmaking map, and campaign collectibles in Halo 3!”
All three video games have had their prices reduced to encourage players to purchase them after the weekend is over.
In other Xbox news, a new Star Wars video game could be on the way, the next Just Dance title will support the Kinect, and the Xbox Series S and X consoles have already beaten the Xbox One’s sales numbers in Japan.
