The games that are free for this weekend only are The Sims 4 and Puyo Puyo Tetris 2. Many gamers will be familiar withthe Sims series, one which sees players living a virtual lifestyle. The newest entry, The Sims 4,came out in 2014 but has seen consistent updates since then. On the other hand,Puyo Puyo Tetris 2combines the fast gameplay of the two puzzle game series into one package. Fans of these titles can play the traditional versions separately or cross them over. From adventure mode to online versus matches, Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 offers a host of modes to engage with.

Players will need to act fast though, because these two titles are only free for the weekend. Available until Sunday, February 7, gamers can download the titles from the Xbox website or through the Subscriptions tab in the digital store on console. While it is clear these offerings are more of a short term demo, each game will have a discount once they are no longer free. The Sims 4 will have an 80% off sale, and Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 is going to be $30.

Free play weekends are a great way of introducing players to games they may not have tried before. Despite the reportedly high sales of The Sims 4, there may be some who have not gotten a chance to try it out. Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 is likely a bit more niche, but the gameplay could bring in a host of new fans before the weekend is out. Combining the free weekend offering with discounts afterwardsalso encourages hesitant buyers to take the plunge.

For the Xbox Live Gold subscription cost, some may question the game choices as outdated. The Sims 4 is now 5 years old, a lifetime when it comes to the gaming industry. Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 also has a cartoonish style that could be off-putting for those paying for online. Regardless,any gamers looking for fresh gameplay should check out the free titles this weekend.
