Guide: These 300+ Creators Collection Games Are All Free On Xbox

Did you know that there are over 300 free, largely hidden 'Creators Collection' games on Xbox? These are indie games that aren't publicised by Microsoft, and don't boast all of the same features (such as Achievements) as normal Xbox games. But they're still free, and many of them are still very playable on Xbox One - albeit with a few catches.

What is a Creators Collection game on Xbox One?

The Creators Collection was established by Microsoft in 2017 as a way to "open up development to anyone with no barriers - no traditional certification, no 'concept approval,' and no limitations." Basically, it's the wild west of the Microsoft Store, where you'll find games published by anyone, from small studios to students.

And this comes with a few catches. Firstly, some of the games were originally developed for mobile rather than Xbox, so you might run into some issues in getting a few to work. Additionally, Creators Collection games typically use the Universal Windows Platform, which asks for permission to retrieve user data when you play them - regardless of whether the developer is requesting that data or not.

That said, there are definitely some hidden gems amongst them (World of Tennis: Roaring '20s is a favourite of ours), so have a browse and see what you can find! Here's how you can locate these games on the Xbox store:

  • Head to the Microsoft Store on Xbox One
  • Go to 'Browse Games'
  • Below the Featured section, look for a tab that says 'Creators Collection'
