The Elder Scrolls Online Tamriel Unlimited

Join over 15 million players and discover an adventure unlike anything else in The Elder Scrolls Online, the award-winning online RPG set in the Elder Scrolls universe, with an extended stay in Free Play Days until Tuesday, April 13 at 7am PDT. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to discover the secrets of Tamriel, craft your own weapons and style of play, and journey to epic lands. Not only that, but the Morrowind chapter will be made available to play and don’t miss out on the epic savings currently available for The Elder Scrolls Online in the Microsoft Store.

Hunt: Showdown

Hunt: Showdown is a fast-paced, competitive first-person PvP bounty hunting game with strong PvE elements from the makers of Crysis. You are part of a group of hardened bounty hunters tasked with banishing nightmarish creatures from our world, and you will be paid generously. Fail, and death will strip you of both character and gear. Set in the darkest corners of the world, it packs the thrill of survival games into match-based format. During the Free Play Days Weekend, save on Hunt: Showdown and select DLCs for a limited time!

Steel Rats

Visit an alternative, dieselpunk version of 1940’s American Coastal City, and save it from the deadly invasion of alien Junkbots. Are you a born leader, bold racer, young genius, or the ratchet circus performer? In the end, there is only one mission – Kill the bots! Weapons? Your bike is an arsenal equipped with razor sharp wheels, harpoon guns, and flame-throwing exhaust – you’ll be unstoppable! Steel Rats is a 2.5D indie platformer with innovative gameplay, mechanics based on physics, and the coolest dieselpunk graphic style. If you haven’t tried it yet, there is no time to wait! And if you like what you see this weekend, Steel Rats is getting a massive 70% discount in the Microsoft Store.
