Xbox Live Free Play Days: Bleeding Edge, Madden NFL 20 and Naruto Shippuden 4

By Sean Carey,
Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers have three Xbox One games to play this weekend for free thanks to Free Play Days. Bleeding Edge, Madden NFL 20 and Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 are all now free to play up until Monday.

Although not included in Xbox's official announcement, our scanners picked up that XCOM 2 is also listed in this week's Free Play Days. Looking at the Microsoft Store, the listing shows the strategy game as free to play up until Thursday, April 30th, however, there is no option to install the game. This could be a simple mistake, a regional difference or XCOM 2 could be going free to play at some point later today.

Bleeding Edge

Description: Team-Up. Cause Chaos. Grab your team and tear it up in Bleeding Edge, an electrifying online brawler where every fighter comes mechanically enhanced for mayhem!
Size: 11.4GB
Bleeding Edge is the game to go for this weekend if you're looking for a free completion. The achievement list is incredibly straightforward, and now the unlocking issues have been ironed out, it should take you around 8-10 hours to complete. Bleeding Edge is a great game when played with friends or a competent team, so there is plenty of fun to be had with this one. If you're already an Xbox Game Pass subscriber and haven't played the team-based brawler yet, your time might be better served elsewhere this weekend as the game is already included in the service.

If you're looking for another free completion on-top of Bleeding Edge, Madden NFL 20 could be the way to go. According to estimates, the game only takes around 6-8 hours to complete if you follow the fantastic walkthrough from NoHeroes94. It should be pointed out that the achievements are somewhat buggy in this year's Madden and might not unlock despite meeting the requirements. The walkthrough also involves downloading and using player-made rosters. However, EA's servers have been acting up, and some players can't seem to access the rosters. Your mileage may vary on this one.
