The next week from Free Xbox Play Days has already started, Dead Island Definitive Edition and Hunting Simulator 2 are available for free this weekend until September 25th. Both games are free for anyone with an Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription on Xbox One or Xbox Series X|S. Both games are available for download now through 11:59pm PDT next Sunday.
Xbox Free Play discounts during the promotion
As usual, there are usually discounts on games included in this returning Xbox promo. So it’s a bit of a surprise that the Dead Island Definition Edition doesn’t get a deal and stays at $19.99 on the Microsoft Store. On the other hand, Hunting Simulator 2’s price is significantly reduced by 60 percent from $49.99 MSRP to $19.99. Both games have plenty of content to discover over the four days of this free weekend game, so this is a good time to pick up either game once the promotion is over.
If you haven’t had the chance yet, Dead Island Definitive Edition is a timely addition to Xbox Free Play Days, as the long-awaited, often-delayed Dead Island 2 will finally arrive on February 3rd, 2023. Despite the numerous changes that have been made to the sequel over the past decade, the sequel seems to build on the lore established in the original Dead Island. A leaked trailer of the Yager version of the game, starring Megyn Kelly and a Jack Black impersonator, provides a brief synopsis of Dead Island, but playing through the original game is the best way to understand where the zombie pathogen came from. Dead Island Definitive Edition, released in May 2016 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, is a reboot of the original game and includes all DLCs.
Also, the success of Trombone Champ on Steam prompted the game to be ported to other consoles, and She-Hulk Episode 6 added Mr. Immortal to the MCU.
