Microsoft has confirmed the Free Play Days for March 28, with this weekend's free-to-play Xbox games including some limited trials. Players subscribed to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Xbox Game Pass Core can now play Black Desert and Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker for free up until Monday, April 1, and Xbox Series X|S players can have a quick dip in the Cyberpunk 2077 achievements as well, since the game has a free trial. Assassin's Creed Mirage also has an (even briefer) free trial available. Check out our list of the best free Xbox games if you fancy playing some other games this weekend without opening your wallet.

Xbox Free Play Games (March 28 to April 1)

If you fancy heading to Night City for some fun this weekend, be aware that only the Xbox Series X|S version of Cyberpunk 2077 is available for the free trial, and you'll be limited to a total of five hours of playtime. Unsurprisingly, that's around 95 hours too short to unlock all 57 achievements, but at least you can have a blast!

Similar to Cyberpunk, Ubisoft is offering a free trial for Assassin's Creed Mirage, although this one is only for two hours, so you won't be able to make much of a dent in its achievement list. If you do decide to hop in for the trial before picking up the full game, a completion here is estimated to take between 25 and 30 hours.

As for Naruto to Baruto: Shinobi Striker, we've seen it feature in Free Play Days many times over the last couple of years, and it was once included in Xbox Game Pass, so this could be an opportunity for you to finish it. If you've not played the fighting game before, however, it has an estimated completion time of between 200 and 300 hours, so starting and finishing it this weekend is fairly unlikely.

Continuing the trend of un-completable games for this week's Free Play Days, Black Desert is an MMO with a lengthy completion time ranging between 200 and 300 hours. Much like Naruto to Baruto, we've seen Black Desert feature in Free Play Days a number of times, so if you fancy starting a game you can hop back into as and when, this could be worth checking out.

If you don't fancy sinking time into any of these games this weekend and are an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscriber, check out our list of the best Xbox Game Pass games.
