It’s the freakin’ weekend, which means it’s time to get stuck in some games. Maybe you’re playing Dragon’s Dogma 2, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, or Rise of the Ronin. Or, if you’re a Game Pass subscriber, you could be playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III’s Multiplayer and Zombies mode as part of Xbox Free Play Days.

Xbox announced on April 4 that for this weekend, you can get free access to the latest Call of Duty’s online modes, including base Multiplayer and Zombies, until April 7 at 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET. That might not be long, but sometimes, a taste is all you need to become enamored with a new game. Besides, it’s free and doesn’t include the single-player campaign, which mostly sucks. Bullet dodged.

Free Play Days is an additional offering for Xbox Game Pass subscribers. Once a week, Xbox will reveal what games will be free to play for that weekend, with whatever you earn in-game carrying over to the full title if you purchase it.

Alongside Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III’s Multiplayer and Zombies modes, you can also play the open-world racer Lego 2K Drive until April 7 at 11:59 p.m. PT / 2:59 a.m. ET and the popular MMO The Elder Scrolls Online until April 9 at 7 a.m. PT / 10 a.m. ET. That’s a lot of open worlds to explore in one weekend.

These aren’t the only freebies Xbox is handing out this month. While the above three games are connected to Free Play Days, the company has also announced the month’s first wave of titles coming to Xbox Game Pass. Yeah, LEGO 2K Drive is there, but so, too, is Superhot: Mind Control Delete (available now), Lil Gator Game (available now), EA Sports PGA Tour (available now), Kona (available April 9), Botany Manor (available April 9), Shadow of the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition (April 11) and Harold Halibut (available April 16). It’s a good weekend to play a game on Xbox.
