This week has been pretty crazy, huh? Especially for Xbox Game Pass, which has seen both Forza Horizon 5 and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas – The Definitive Edition enter the service. If that wasn't enough, then there's also an abundance of Microsoft Store deals, Free Play Days titles and other Xbox Game Pass additions to check out.
Here's what we're diving into this weekend:

I think the question is, what aren't I playing this weekend? There's just not enough time to get to everything I'd like to, but my focus this weekend is definitely going to be on GTA: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition, and particularly GTA 3 and Vice City, as I've already had a chance to play quite a few hours of San Andreas on Game Pass.
And of course, the other game I'm going to be spending most of time with is Forza Horizon 5, which has been a blast so far. Unfortunately, given how busy this week has been, I really haven't had much time with it to date (and next week's looking incredibly busy as well), so hopefully I'll be able to get behind the wheel this weekend.
Finally, as you can see from Daniel's message below, this week marks his final week as a News Reporter at Pure Xbox. It's been a pleasure working alongside him over the past year to help grow the website, and I have no doubt he'll go on to do fantastic things in his next venture. First though, here's still got a few articles going live this weekend!
Have a good couple of days, everyone.

I couldn't resist picking up the early access edition of Battlefield 2042, so my weekend will be spent mainly on that - server permitting. Additionally, I'm excited to check out a few smaller Xbox Game Pass titles. This weekend I'm going to see what Unpacking and Unsighted have to offer - two games that have struck the Game Pass community by storm in recent weeks.
Outside of the realms of Xbox, I'm finally making a dent in my PlayStation 5 library. Over the past year, my backlog has grown immensely for it and I'll be finishing Bugsnax in preparation to jump into some bigger games over there.
Finally, this is probably the best place to say this was my last week here at Pure Xbox! I've absolutely loved my time here, engaging with the community and creating some fun, interesting stories, but I'll be moving on to something else in the coming weeks.
Thank you all for your kind words on my articles over the past year, and I hope you'll all help Pure Xbox grow to be the best possible community it can be. You're all awesome!
All the best to you all!
