Game Details

Far Cry 5
Far Cry 5 challenges you – a deputy cut off from the outside world – to free rural Hope County, Montana from the grip of a violent doomsday cult led by the charismatic and menacing Joseph Seed, known to his followers as The Father. Putting a stop to their reign of terror isn’t something you can do alone – you’ll need to rally the locals, form a resistance, and use whatever methods you can scrounge to take the county back. Hope County is huge, and you’ll find opportunities not just to shoot a wide variety of weapons, but to team up with a friendly bear, hurl shovels with deadly accuracy, slam souped-up big rigs through cult blockades, and break all kinds of records at some of Hope County’s picturesque fishing spots. There’s plenty to discover, and if you want to keep playing after the free period is up, you’ll be able to grab Far Cry 5 for up to 85% off during the sale.

Step in the open-world survival sandbox of Unturned and walk in the shoes of a survivor getting through the zombies infested ruins of modern-day society. Scavenge for clothes, weapons, food, supplies, and craft resources to create your equipment and defenses. The greater aim is to survive: form alliances with your friends or fight against up to 23 other players to remain among the living, to stay Unturned! For a limited time only, save 50% in the Xbox Store. And stay tuned in September for the release of the Elver map, the first DLC content for Unturned on the Xbox One!

Bee Simulator
During Free Play Days, live the life of a Bee in a unique simulator experience. Explore a virtual representation of Central Park to collect pollen, defy dangerous wasps and save your hive. The game will be on sale until August 16th at 60% off.
