Play Tropico 6, For The King and MLB The Show 22 for free on Xbox this weekend

Xbox, Tropico 6, For The King, and MLB The Show 22 video games are now free on Microsoft’s Xbox One and Xbox Series X console generations until the end of the weekend.

It’s worth noting that both Tropico 6 and MLB The Show 22 are currently available to play as part of Xbox Game Pass, so those with an active Xbox Game Pass subscription can already play them for free (as part of their subscription) and will probably be able to play them for a while after the end of this weekend.

With that in mind, For The King is the obvious choice for Xbox gamers with an active Xbox Game Pass subscription. Of course, those with only an Xbox Live Gold subscription only have the next two days to try out all three.

Here is the official game description and trailer for For The King:

For The King is a strategy RPG that blends tabletop and roguelike elements into a challenging realm-spanning adventure. Jump into a single-player experience or play co-op online and locally. None until you return from your trip. Can you put an end to Chaos?

For The King is a challenging mix of strategy, turn-based combat, and roguelike elements. Each game is unique with procedural maps, quests and events. Explore Fahrul solo, in local co-op, or online. Remember, adventurer, you are not doing this for wealth or fame, but for your village, for your kingdom, for the king!

Here is the description and trailer for Tropico 6:

In times of political turmoil and social unrest, the people cry out for visionary leaders, who will direct the destiny of their country with foresight and ingenuity. Prove once again that you are a feared dictator or peace-loving statesman in the island state of Tropico and shape the fate of your own banana republic through four distinct eras. Take on new challenges on the international scene and always keep the needs of your employees in mind.

For the first time in the series, manage vast archipelagos, build bridges to connect your islands and use new means of transport and infrastructures. Send your Tropicans on raids to steal the wonders of the world, including the Statue of Liberty and the Eiffel Tower. Customize your palace at will and deliver election speeches from your balcony, to win favor with your subjects.
