Xbox One Titles To Get "Free Play" Days Soon
Posted by Ken Barnes
It appears that Microsoft is testing a new Xbox One feature that allows games to be available for free for a limited time. In the US - although not in the UK, we've checked - some Xbox Preview Dashboard users saw that Max: The Curse of Brotherhood is listed as being part of a promotion called "Free Play Day with Gold."
Xbox Support claim that an official announcement will be made shortly regarding the development.
Depending on how this works, we could see some big-name titles appearing as part of the Free Play Day system. Certain games - that maybe can't be completed in 24 hours or that offer compelling multiplayer modes - could go live on the system as a promotional tool, essentially replacing the need for a publisher to produce a demo. We'll wait for an official announcement before we speculate further, though!
