Play The Elder Scrolls Online and OnRush For Free on Xbox One This Weekend

Play The Elder Scrolls Online and OnRush For Free on Xbox One This Weekend

Bethesda's MMORPG and Codemaster's arcade racer go free for three days.

Across this coming weekend, Xbox One players will have two new free games to play. You'll be able to play The Elder Scrolls Online and OnRush from today through to Sunday for free.

The free "weekend" for both games actually kicked off yesterday on August 9, as was announced in the video just below from Xbox. To take advantage of this promotion for the next few days, you don't even need an Xbox Live Gold Membership.

This is all part of the "Free Play Days for All" initiative from Microsoft, which opens up online capabilities for free for all games on Xbox, regardless of whether you have an active Xbox Live Gold membership or not. So, you can theoretically dive into any online games you already own without an Xbox Live Gold membership. Now might be the perfect time to revisit Titanfall 2.

In our OnRush review from earlier this year, we praised Codemasters' game, saying "What's here on display is a wonderfully unique racing title, to the point that I'm not even sure I can call it a racer. It's a little bit Motorstorm, a little bit Burnout, a little bit SSX, but ultimately Onrush stands on its own".

As for The Elder Scrolls Online, although you'll be able to partake in the game for free over the next few days, you won't be granted access to all of the DLC packs for free. You will, however, have access to the Morrowind expansion for the game, which we praised back last year when it released. The game is also available to play for free on PS4 until August 15.
