Ubisoft's fantastic Riders Republic is part of the current set of Xbox weekly deals, but if you're still on the fence about whether to buy it, you'll get a chance to play it for free with Xbox Live Gold from this Thursday to Sunday.

The trial (which is also available on other platforms) will run from February 10th to February 13th, and it will include access to the full game. You can't officially pre-load it on Xbox prior to the 10th, but if you head to the Xbox mobile app and search for the game, you'll find a "Download to Console" option which will allow you to pre-load it.

If you want to buy the game after you're done playing the trial, it's got a 50% discount right now on Xbox, with the sale seemingly set to last until next Tuesday. All progress from the free weekend will transfer over to the paid version.

We've loved Riders Republic during our time with it here at Pure Xbox, giving it an "Excellent" 9/10 score in our review, and calling it "a fantastic open world sports game that delivers big on massively multiplayer arcade mayhem."
