Xbox One FREEdom campaign puts free to play titles in the spotlight

If you’re an Xbox One player enlisted in Microsoft’s Live Rewards program, then you’ve probably received an email (or you’re about to) about a new campaign put together by the Windows 10 developer.

What’s the goal? Through the new FREEdom campaign, Microsoft is trying to get more gamers that own Xbox One to check out cool free to play titles.

Some of the games included in the promotion are World of Tanks, Neverwinter, Warframe and even DC Universe Online. In case you were also wondering what kind of rewards await you, there are multiple types of rewards. Normally, you’d have to dip into your wallet to grab any of these but during the promotion which lasts until the 28th of February, you can get them for free.

While real money is not involved, the Platinum currency found on the Xbox platform and Microsoft’s own Reward Credits, is used instead. You can actually turn these credits into real money that’s stored on your Microsoft account. This will happen automatically when you have enough credits to be deposited as real money according to the conversion rate.

Speaking of real money, we said it’s not involved but Microsoft is actually pushing users to spend some of it in this period as well, tempting players with more Reward Credits for doing so.

This could be a great opportunity to discover some cool free games you’d enjoy. Even though Microsoft would love nothing more than to spend all your money on free games, you can opt to just experience the free stuff in free games.
