These Xbox One Games Are Free To Play This Weekend For Gold Subscribers

Now that we’re past the Black Friday and Cyber Monday weekend, we can start getting back to normal with a nice, relaxing weekend. Microsoft hopes to help with this by offering a free-play weekend for two driving games: The Crew 2 and Trailmakers.

Both The Crew 2 and Trailmakers are free to play for Xbox Live Gold subscribers from December 5 at 12:01 AM Pacific until December 8 at 11:59 PM PT. If you want to keep them after that, you can pick them up at a discount. To download them to your consoles, head over to the Gold member area on your Xbox One and select the game you want to install on your console. Alternatively, you can click the links below and install them on your devices remotely.

  • The Crew 2
    • Standard Edition — $15 ($60)
    • Deluxe Edition — $17.50 ($70)
    • Gold Edition — $25 ($100)
    • Season Pass — $20 ($40)
  • Trailmakers
    • Full Game — $22.50 ($30)
    • Our The Crew 2 review scored the game an 8/10, and while critic Edmond Tran was disappointed by the lack of multiplayer interaction, he still enjoyed the game quite a bit.

      “I’ll fondly recall both the tension of flinging sprint boats back and forth through the narrow, artificial canals of The Venetian in Las Vegas, and the easygoing satisfaction of an hour-long hypercar race from New York to San Francisco, where I listened to a podcast and enjoyed the rolling scenery,” he wrote. “Despite its shortcomings, The Crew 2 still displays admirable strengths, which lie in its player-friendly features, freedom of movement, and its willingness to bend the rules in order to make things exciting and varied for an accessible, American-themed thrillride.”

      Trailmakers released earlier this year and, like The Crew 2, features racing and exploration by land, sea, and air. However, in Trailmakers, you create your own vehicles out of blocks. GameSpot doesn’t currently have a review of it, but it has “Overwhelmingly Positive” reviews on Steam, so the Xbox One’s free weekend is the perfect chance to try it out yourself.
