Both Tekken 7 and Ark feature in Xbox Game Pass, so if you're already a subscriber, then this week's Free Play Days is a bit of a washout for you. Tekken 7 is a relatively short completion, with estimates suggesting that all of the game's 43 achievements can be unlocked in about 10 hours. Ark can be completed pretty easily with console commands, if all you're after is the achievements, and Overwatch, although great fun, does have a huge set of 47 semi-discontinued achievements.

All three of these games are now free to play up until Monday.
