Warhammer: Chaosbane headlines this weekend's Free Play Days games

By Sean Carey,
After a week off, Free Play Days is back! This weekend, Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers can play three games this weekend for no extra cost, including three Warhammer titles.

Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus

Take control of the most technologically advanced army in the Imperium - The Adeptus Mechanicus. Your every decision will weigh heavily on the outcome of the mission, in this turn-based tactical game. Will you be blessed by the Omnissiah?

Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr

You are an Inquisitor, the Imperium's most powerful agent. Ensure the Emperor's will is respected in the far-flung corners of the dark universe of Warhammer 40,000 and uncover the secrets of the fortress-monastery, Martyr.
In this action-RPG, choose from amongst several character classes and take part in tactical and violent combat, in solo or co-op mode.



No, you're not suffering from déjà vu — Warhammer: Chaosbane is (for the fifth time now) included in a Free Play Days weekend once again, which is good news if you still have a few achievements left to unlock in the action-RPG. If you're thinking of starting Chaosbane, it'll take you between 40 and 50 hours to complete its achievement list, and while you probably won't get that done in a weekend, the game does have a 3.32 community rating, so there probably is some fun to be had here.

The next title on offer is the turn-based strategy game Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus, which, unlike Chaosbane, has never featured in a Free Play Days weekend. We don't have enough completion data for Mechanicus, so we can't offer you a completion estimate, but with an achievement such as the ominously named, Impossible, which asks you to beat the game in Very Hard mode, we imagine the achievement list is a tough one to crack.

Finally, we have Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr. The game was previously included with Games with Gold, so many of you will likely have this one already in your library. If you do, you may want to skip Martyr in favour of something else this weekend. If not, and you're curious, the game will take you between 80 and 100 hours to complete (excluding DLC packs) and has a community rating of 3.84/5, so there's probably some fun to be had here.

Warhammer: Chaosbane, Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus, and Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr are likely included in Free Play Days thanks to the Warhammer Skulls Festival, which starts today. All three of these games are now free to play up until Monday.
