Conan Exiles and Halo Wars 2 Free for the Weekend

By NicoleRenee00,
Need a new game or two to boost that gamerscore? Both Halo Wars 2 and Conan Exiles will be free to play with a gold subscription for the weekend, and both are free to download today. It's a perfect chance to test a new game while keeping some cash in your wallet.


Set in the open-world universe of Conan the Barbarian, Conan Exiles pits players against one another in the battle to dominate the exiled lands, whether through alliances or by force. Build shelters and craft tools in an attempt to prosper within the harsh wildlife, and avoid the dangers that lie within. Standing as a very short completion of a few hours, Conan Exiles is a great choice for a quick completion over the weekend.

Halo Wars 2

Halo Wars 2 is a real-time strategy game and the continuation of the 5th installment of the series. The campaign consists of 12 missions spread across three acts. The player is tasked with controlling UNSC units in preparation for war with the mercenary faction known as the Banished. Marked at around 60 hours for completion, it might be a stretch to complete this one within the time it remains free.

Naturally, any progress you make in either game during the free-play period will cross over to any future purchases. Furthermore, Conan Exiles will be on sale the following week, according to the developer.
