Last week was a fairly busy one for free-to-play news relating to Xbox, with the XDefiant closed beta getting great reviews, The Division: Heartland treating us to a bunch of new footage, and Disney Speedstorm successfully launching in early access prior to its eventual F2P conversion in late 2023 / early 2024.

With that in mind, we wanted to use this opportunity to highlight ten upcoming free-to-play games that are all expected to arrive on Xbox in 2023 (at least with a beta-or-two), all of which have piqued our interest.
