THREE Xbox games you can download for free and play right now (if you’re quick)

Xbox Scarlett is Microsoft's next big console release, but it's not coming for over a year, coming sometime around holiday 2020.

However, the new Xbox All Access subscription, launched this week with GAME and at Smythes in the UK (click those links for more info).

The £24.99 a month subscription nets you a new Xbox with the option to upgrade to Scarlett at a later day.

So you're more or less paying off your next-generation console now, whilst enjoying everything Xbox has to offer right now.

But if you're taking on a new £24.99 payment every month, you should almost certainly make the most of every free game you can rinse from the platform to save you some cash.

This weekend is no different, with Xbox giving away three free games to play for any Xbox Live Gold and/or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members.

That said, these freebies don't last forever, so if you're stuck for something to do today, because maybe all your mates are playing Death Stranding, then it's a good option.

Currently Xbox One players can enjoy The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, Cities: Skylines – Xbox One Edition, and The Surge for free.

Two of these games – The Surge and Cities: Skylines – are only available to play until Sunday, November 10 at 11:59 pm PST. For readers in the UK, that means you have until Monday, November 11 at 7.59 am GMT to enjoy them.

In the case of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, players have a bit longer to enjoy themselves, with the trial running out Wednesday, November 6 at 7:00 a.m. PST. Again, for anyone in the UK that means you have until Thursday, November 12 at 7.59 am GMT.

If you would like to know more about each game individually, you'll find a meaty description just below to give you a quick overview of what each game has to offer.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited

Experience a world without limits. In The Elder Scrolls Online, where you go, how you play, and who you become is entirely up to you, allowing you to explore freely everything Tamriel has to offer and play your way. During the free play period, you can download the ESO base game and explore 24 unique zones (including the home of the Dark Elves, Morrowind), command four powerful classes, and experience amazing stories that take you all over Tamriel.

Once you created a new account and entered the game, you’ll also receive 500 Crowns free to spend in the in-game Crown Store on collectibles and useful items. If you’ve played in previous free play events, you’ll be able to continue your story right from where you left off.

Cities: Skylines – Xbox One Edition

Realize the thrill of being the mayor of a real metropolis in Cities: Skylines and build the city of your dreams. As part of Free Play Days, with the Cities: Skylines – Xbox One Edition, you will get access to the base game and the popular After Dark expansion.

The Surge

The Surge takes visceral melee combat to another level with dynamic limb-cutting and executions. After a cataclysmic event occurs during your first day at work, you’ll need to take a powerful exo-suit to escape an industrial complex gone haywire. From demented coworkers to rogue AI and nanomachine threats, The Surge will pull no punches. And if you enjoy The Surge, check out The Surge 2 which is currently available at 25% off for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members!

If you decide you like any of these games enough there's also some more good news.

Should you decide to buy the games – at a rather decent discount – you will be able to keep your Gamerscore and achievements earned in-game during the free play days event.

So you won't lose any progress you make if you start playing today.
