Time is running out to test out the latest Xbox One free game from the Microsoft Store.
For this weekend only, Xbox Live Gold subscribers can download and play Mortal Kombat 11 at no extra charge.
This deal was revealed earlier this week by Microsoft and includes great news for fighter fans.
Not only do you have full access to the base game, but fans can also find all versions of MK11 discounted by 40% off.
And that’s not the only bonus available to Mortal Kombat fans this week.
Xbox One gamers can also keep all the progress they’ve made during the demo and carry on their adventures if they buy the full version.
Fans can also try out the latest character, Terminator T-800, which is part of the trial.
The bad news is that fans can only play MK11 for a little longer as part of this free game bonus.
Microsoft confirms that this trial is running until October 14 at 12:59 p.m. PDT. For gamers in the UK, this will mean closer to 8:59am, BST.
“With new DLC fighters and various content updates available, now is the perfect time to jump in and experience the latest instalment in the critically acclaimed franchise,” a message from Microsoft explains.
“During the Mortal Kombat 11 Free Trial Weekend, you’ll be able to access a variety of different content including all multiplayer game modes and the full base game roster of iconic characters, along with the Custom Character Variation System that gives you the creative control to customize different versions of any fighter.
“You’ll also be able to check out the first two chapters from NetherRealm’s cinematic Story mode, which introduces a new time-bending narrative continuing the epic saga that is more than 25 years in the making.
“And last, but certainly not least, you’ll even be able to preview recently added Mortal Kombat 11 Kombat Pack characters within the Towers of Time mode, including the powerful Terminator T-800 from the upcoming “Terminator: Dark Fate” film, the fierce Matoka warrior, Nightwolf and the soul-stealing sorcerer, Shang Tsung.”
Fans should note that Xbox Live Gold will be required to grab this latest deal from Microsoft.
And it’s not the only free game bonus available to play this weekend on Xbox One and Xbox One X, following a new blog post from Microsoft.
Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members can play Warhammer: Chaosbane for free on Xbox One right now.
The event began on Thursday, October 10 at 12:01 a.m. PDT and runs through to Sunday, October 13 at 11:59 p.m. PDT. It means that Chaosbane will be going offline at around the same time as Mortal Kombat 11 and comes with similar access.
Fans will also have the choice of purchasing the game at a reduced price during the free trial.
A message from Microsoft reads: “If you are a fan of games such as Diablo, Victor Vran and the like, this is a great opportunity to lay your hands on a fast-paced action-RPG! Alone or with your friends, take on the threat of Chaos and defeat its minions.
“With the recent release of a massive update, this is the time to hack-and-slash your way through hordes of enemies!
“This update added a new endgame mode called Invasion that will give you access to dozens of missions to complete, new unlockable items and a new rarity level for your loot. And something tells us that another big update with even more content is underway.”
Xbox Live Gold members can also download the latest Games with Gold titles for October, including Tembo the Badass Elephant and Bolt.
