Xbox Free Play Days include Outriders and The Elder Scrolls Online

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Live Gold subscribers can play the full games for free for a limited time.

The latest Xbox Free Play Days period has begun, and the games this time around are Outriders, Just Die Already, and The Elder Scrolls Online.

Free Play Days are occasional promotional periods which allow Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers to play the full versions of select recent titles within a limited window of days. Just Die Already and Outriders can be downloaded and played over this weekend, running from August 18 until Sunday, August 21 at 11:59pm PT (August 22, 3am ET / 8am BST / 9am CEST).

Generously, players have a little longer to explore the expansive world of The Elder Scrolls Online. That’ll be free-to-play for Gold and Game Pass subscribers until Monday, August 29 at 6:59am PT (9am ET / 2pm BST / 3pm CEST).

Created by the minds behind Goat Simulator, Just Die Already is another ridiculous sandbox game, this time focused on old folks who’ve been kicked out of a retirement home and must survive the (often ridiculous) hazards of the world around them.
