All three of our games this week have featured in Free Play Days before, which is great if you don't own them and need to finish up their achievement lists and not so great if you have no interest in Overwatch, Vermintide 2, or Saints Row: IV: Re-Elected. Overwatch, which has had more free weekends than any other game in history at this point, will take you well beyond 200 hours to complete, thanks to its billions of title updates. Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is another game that's featured numerous times in Free Play Days events and is currently included in Xbox Game Pass, so Ultimate subscribers may want to give this one a miss. A completion of Vermintide 2's base list of achievements will take you between 80 and 100 hours — you won't be completing this one in a weekend, but you might be able to mop up a few achievements you didn't quite manage from a previous free weekend. Finally, we have Saints Row IV: Re-Elected, a game that was included in Xbox Game Pass once upon a time and will take between 40 and 50 hours to unlock all of its achievements.

As always, all three of these games have had their prices slashed over on the Microsoft Store, and they'll be free to play up until Monday.
