These 100+ Games All Have Free Trials On Xbox One, Series X

Original story (Wed 15th Jul, 2020 17:45 BST): We don't know about you, but we sometimes come across games on the Microsoft Store with free trials that we weren't even aware of. Publishers typically announce these trials separately from Microsoft, so it's easy to miss them when they come along, even for major games and franchises.

We also haven't noticed any particularly easy way of filtering for free trials on the Microsoft Store, so we've done it the hard way by going through all 1700+ games individually. We know, we're a bit mad!

What are classed as free trials on Xbox Series X / Xbox One?

The games you see below are all included because they contain the phrase, "this game has a free trial" on their Microsoft Store pages. Typically, these are separate from Xbox free demos because they act as extensions of the full game, locking certain features or putting time limits on how long you can play.

There doesn't seem to be a set rule for how free trials work on Xbox Series X and Xbox One however, so you'll find different types of rules and restrictions with each of the games listed below. Don't forget that EA Play also features its own batch of trials as part of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (we haven't included those here).
