Microsoft is giving you the chance to dive into three games for free this weekend, as long as you’re subscribed to Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. Control and Hunting Simulator 2 can be played for free between April 14 at 12:01 a.m. PT / 3:01 p.m. ET and April 17 at 11:59 p.m. PT / 2:59 p.m. ET. The Elder Scrolls Online is available for a bit longer than the other two, with its free play time up to April 26 at 7:00 a.m. PT / 10:00 a.m. ET. Control left Game Pass a few months ago, so now is your chance to check it out again for free.
Beyond the Free Play Weekend, Microsoft is also slashing the prices of all three titles. If you find yourself enjoying any of the games this weekend, be sure to check out the deals below and grab your favorite titles at a rock-bottom price.

There are two ways to download and play these titles during Free Play Weekend. The easiest way is to navigate to xbox.com and install the games on a console associated with your online account. Or, you can hop on your Xbox and go to the Subscriptions tab in the Xbox Store – where you’ll find the Gold member area and a Free Play Days menu with all eligible titles.
Microsoft is also hosting a gigantic Spring Sale, which offers great discounts on games like Forza Horizon 5, OlliOlli World, and more. If none of the games above catch your eye, be sure to check out the full catalog.
