By Sean Carey,
UPDATE: Hitman has also been added to Xbox Live Free Play Days and is available to play up until Monday. The Elder Scrolls Online is also still available to check out up until Tuesday.

ORIGINAL STORY: For this weekend's Xbox Live Free Play Days we have two games. NBA 2K Playgrounds 2, Override: Mech City Brawl have gone free to play. If you have an Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription, you'll be able to play these titles for free. NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 will be playable for free up until April 16th while Override: Mech City Brawl will be playable up until Monday.

Description: NBA arcade action is back with NBA 2K Playgrounds 2! The sequel to the original smash hit takes street balling to the next level with a massive roster of current and retired NBA players, improved online matchmaking with dedicated servers, four-player online matches, three-point contests, new playgrounds, custom matches, and more! Pick your team, get ready to jam, and Ball Without Limits!

If you're stuck at home and looking for a free completion, you could give NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 a go. We have an estimated completion time of 20-25 hours on-site. However, it's not going to be easy, and it will take some dedication. The NBA Baller Supreme achievement requires you to win the NBA season on NBA difficulty — a tough ask. We have plenty of achievement guides for the basketball game though if you're looking to add to your gamerscore total.

Override: Mech City Brawl

Description: No gears, no glory! Control gigantic robots and duke it out in this 3D mech brawler! Epic battles await in local and online Versus mode, 4-player Co-op – where each player controls one part of a mech – and a single-player campaign. Each mech has its own play style, special moves, and finishers.

The next free game is Override: Mech City Brawl. The fighting game has a completion time of around 12-15 hours according to estimates here on TA, so this one could potentially be finished off over the weekend. However, there are several online multiplayer achievements that might not be your cup of tea. Still, the game has a decent rating of 3.25/5 from the TA community, meaning there could be some fun to be had here.

Don't forget that Gears 5 is also currently free to play thanks to Free Play Days. The Coalition's third-person shooter can be played up until April 12th for no cost. If you're collecting Microsoft Rewards Points, there is a 500 point Rewards punch card found on the Rewards app that requires you to unlock one of the new achievements found in Operation 3: Gridiron.

NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 will be available to play up until April 16th, while Override Mech City Brawl can be played up until Monday. Progress will carry over if you find yourself enjoying one of these games and decide to make a purchase. Let us know in the comments if you'll be playing any of these titles this weekend.
