This weekend, Xbox Live Gold members will be able to try several games for free. As part of the "Free Play Days", the online shooter Overwatch and the racing game F1 2020 are available, among other things. Further details are available in the message.
If you have an Xbox One and would like to try out a game or two, you shouldn't do anything this weekend. Microsoft is once again organizing the well-known "Free Play Days", this time with a total of three games available.

The event is already in full swing and, according to current plans, will run until August 24, 2020 at 8:59 a.m. German time – that is, until next Monday. The online shooter Overwatch from Blizzard Entertainment will be available this weekend. Two teams of five players or heroes each with special skills compete against each other. There are also different classes such as healers, tanks and damage dealers. If you don't feel like shooting shooter fare, you might get your money's worth with the F1 2020 racing game. Thanks to an official license, you can race with real cars and drivers on the famous Formula 1 tracks and fight for the best times. Also on four wheels – but much rougher – things get down to business in Wreckfest, which is currently also available to try out for free.
In order to be able to participate in the "Free Play Days", however, you need a gold membership with Xbox Live or, alternatively, an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. However, there is currently a large-scale discount campaign for the three games mentioned in the Xbox Store that you can all benefit from. For example, there is a 67 percent discount on the Legendary Edition of Overwatch. The other games have a discount of 30 percent.
All readers receive daily news, articles, guides, videos and podcasts about their favorite games free of charge. So far we have financed this site through advertising and kept it as free of clickbaits or paid items as possible, but since COVID-19 this has become increasingly difficult. Many companies are cutting or cutting their advertising budgets for 2020. Budgets that we unfortunately have to rely on if we want to continue to offer PC games free of charge as usual in the future.
For this reason we turn to you now. You can support us as a PC Games supporter so that we can continue to offer our content in the usual form free of charge without introducing a paywall or publishing clickbait news like "And you won't believe what happened next …" . Every contribution, large or small, is valuable.
