The weekend is nearly here and Xbox One players who subscribe to Xbox Live Gold have quite the duo of games to play. Microsoft has revealed that Halo 5: Guardians and The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Special Edition are available to play for free. They’ll be free until April 15th so act quickly (and say goodbye to your monthly bandwidth).
Skyrim Special Edition doesn’t just feature the base game but the Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn expansions as well. The game has also received a 50 percent discount until April 23rd so if you like what you see, there’s plenty of time to make an informed consumer decision.
As for Halo 5: Guardians, its free weekend coincides with the upcoming Halo World Championship Finals. The first person shooter has received numerous multiplayer updates since launch including new maps, modes like Warzone Firefight and Forge map playlists.
