Xbox Free Play Days makes a return this week after a holiday hiatus. And the first Xbox Free Play Days event for 2023 is a doozy, featuring the Saints Row reboot as well as two other games for subscribers of Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate to take for a spin at no additional charge. The games will be available from Thursday, January 5th through Sunday, January 8th. Let’s check out the complete lineup.
As the future Boss, with Neenah, Kevin and Eli by your side, you’ll form The Saints – and take on Los Panteros, The Idols, and Marshall as you build your empire across the streets of Santo Ileso and battle for control of the city. Ultimately Saints Row is the story of a start-up company, it’s just that the business The Saints are in happens to be crime.
Experience the biggest and best Saints Row playground ever created; the unique sprawling world of Santo Ileso is the backdrop for a wild, larger than life sandbox of thrilling side hustles, criminal ventures and blockbuster missions, as you shoot, drive, and wingsuit your way to the top.
