This weekend, you can play Civilization and Overcooked on Xbox for free.
If you own an Xbox, you don’t have to worry about what to do this weekend in terms of entertainment. Microsoft is giving out three great games for free through Sunday, starting today (May 6). Overcooked, Civilization VI, and Call of the Sea are now available for free on Steam. Previously, you would’ve had to shell out hundreds of dollars for these games. An Xbox system and Xbox Game Pass or Xbox Live Gold are all you’ll need!.
Marketing programme manager Dan Hickey provided details on the weekend offer on Xbox Wire, the official blog of the console manufacturer. The procedure is as simple as it seems. Call of the Sea, Sid Meier’s Civilization VI, and Overcooked! All You Can Eat are all free for Xbox Game Pass and Gold subscribers from Thursday, May 5 through Sunday, May 8. After Sunday night, you can download and instal the games from the Xbox store and play them until 11:59 PM PST.
In the event that you decide to purchase the games, two of them are now on sale. The regular price of Call of the Sea is $20, but you can get it for $12 right now. It’s now $9 for Civilization VI’s standard version, down from $30 normally, and $25 for the Anthology Upgrade Bundle. As long as Overcooked is still $40, it makes sense to think twice before making the switch.
These three games, if you haven’t played them, have all received high praise from critics and fans alike. You play a 1930s explorer who is searching for a lost civilisation in the South Pacific in Call of the Sea. Sid Meier’s famed strategy series returns with Civilization VI, a game in which you take control of one of humankind’s most significant civilizations and lead it from the Stone Age to the Space Age. In Overcooked!, you and a friend take charge of a shambolic kitchen as the game progresses. You and your companion will have a lot of fun playing this game!
It’s not unheard of to have three games available for free over a free-to-play weekend, but it is. Three excellent games in a row is even more unusual. The fact that the “free” games need expensive memberships is disheartening, but there aren’t many other drawbacks. Afterward, you may purchase two games at a discount, and all of your accomplishments and save data will be transferred. Take a peek at them and you may be surprised.
