Microsoft has announced that Conan Exiles and Halo Wars 2 are free to play this weekend if you have Xbox Live.
There are a lot of games coming out right now as the games industry gets ready for the ever-important holiday season. Call of Duty, Assassin's Creed, Forza Horizon, Destiny have all had big releases recently and of course, we are due the release of Red Dead Redemption 2 just next week. With all those games coming out, if you are strapped for cash or haven't been able to pick any up yet, you might be at a loss for what to play this weekend.
Well, if you are an Xbox Live subscriber, you can play two games all weekend for no charge. As spotted by Windows Central, both Conan: Exiles and Halo Wars 2: Definitive Edition are free to play to your heart's content. Starting now, you can hop onto either PC or Xbox One and get playing both. They are pretty different games from each other, obviously, with Conan: Exiles being a neat survival game where you try to exist in a harsh brutal world that you can sink some serious time into. On the other side, Halo War 2 is a taught strategy game that tells an interesting side-story in the universe that takes place after Halo 5.
Just head to either the Xbox or Windows store and download them. While you're there, you will see Conan has a 40% discount while Halo Wars 2 has 50% off, so if you are taken by either, you can even pick it up on the cheap. Have at it.
