Xbox Free Play Days include Outriders and The Elder Scrolls Online

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

Free Play Days are occasional promotional periods where Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers can play full versions of select recent titles for a limited period of time. Just Die Already and Outriders will be available to download and play this weekend from August 18th to Sunday, August 21st at 11:59pm PT (August 22nd at 3am ET / 8am BST / 9am CEST).

Generous, players will have a little more time to explore the vast world of The Elder Scrolls Online. It’s free to play for Gold and Game Pass subscribers until Monday, August 29th at 6:59am PT (9am/2pm BST/3pm CEST) .

Created by the minds behind Goat Simulator, Just Die Already is another silly sandbox game. This time, the focus is on an old man who has been kicked out of a nursing home and must survive the (often ridiculous) dangers of the world around him.
