Xbox Free Play Days returns for another round of free games for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers to try out. This week’s Xbox Free Play Days event runs from today (Thursday) through Sunday, August 20.

There are four games on this week’s slate, including a very high-profile open-world racing title from Xbox Game Studios. It’s already available on Game Pass, which admittedly does dampen some of the excitement for its inclusion in the lineup, but its a great addition nonetheless.
