Good news if you've been wanting to play Far Cry 6 for free! The game will be included in the weekly Xbox Free Play Days promotion from this Thursday to Sunday, allowing you to sample the entire game if you're an Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate member.

It's a big game, so perhaps think about getting a head-start by pre-loading it right now! You can do this via the official Xbox app for Android and iOS (not the Game Pass one), and here's what you need to do:

  1. Load up the official 'Xbox' app on Android or iOS (not the Game Pass app)
  2. Hit the search icon at the bottom of the app
  3. Tap 'Games' and search for 'Far Cry', then scroll down until you find FC6
  4. On the game page, hit 'Download to Console'

In addition Far Cry 6 is included in this week's Xbox sales at a whopping 60% off, so if you enjoy it during the Xbox Free Play Days promotion, you can purchase it for £23.99 / $23.99 and just continue from where you left off.

We're expecting more Free Play Days titles to drop on Thursday, so we'll let you know when that happens.
