By Sean Carey,
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Xbox Live Gold subscribers can check out three games for free over the weekend thanks to Free Play Days. Sea of Thieves, Hunt: Showdown, and Warhammer: Chaosbane are all now free-to-play up until Monday.

Sea of Thieves

Legends of the Sea

Description: Sea of Thieves offers the essential pirate experience, from sailing and fighting to exploring and looting – everything you need to live the pirate life and become a legend in your own right. With no set roles, you have complete freedom to approach the world, and other players, however you choose.
Whether you're voyaging as a group or sailing solo, you're bound to encounter other crews in this shared-world adventure – but will they be friends or foes, and how will you respond?

This weekend's free games all have pretty long completion estimates, so it's unlikely you be able to unlock every achievement in these titles. If you're willing to put in some serious grinding and forgo sleep, you might be able to complete Warhammer: Chaosbane, which has an estimate completion time between 40 and 50 hours. Only 1% of TA players have managed to complete Hunt: Showdown, which is presumably down to the online nature of the game, while Sea of Thieves has several time-consuming achievements that only the most dedicated of players will ever unlock.

As always, these games will be free-to-play up until Monday, and they've been discounted over on the Microsoft Store.
