The 14 Best Free Games on Xbox One

Fortnite Battle Royale

Gaming is an expensive hobby, isn’t it?

That’s the perception, but in reality it doesn’t have to be. Big releases are often discounted to a half of their original price within months, services such as Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus give you games to play while your subscription is active, and there are plenty of games available for you to play absolutely free.

On Xbox One, there are well over 30 free games that you can just download and jump right into. Though to play those that are online focused you’ll need an Xbox Live Gold subscription. But which ones are worth your time? Here are the 14 best free games on Xbox One.

Fortnite Battle Royale

Fortnite Battle Royale is a standalone 100-player PvP mode that’s a part of Fortnite. It’s essentially a more colourful and playful PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, but it runs better and is totally free to play.

If tense multiplayer battles where danger lurks around every corner are your thing, you should probably give Fortnite Battle Royale a try. It’s definitely one of the best free games you’ll play on Xbox One.

Fortnite Battle Royale is Xbox One X enhanced.

If you’ve ever wanted to live out a Mad Max fantasy, Crossout is the game to do it with.

Crossout lets you build your own vehicle of war – your own Magnum Opus – and use it to do battle in both PvE and PvP events. As you play you earn the respect of those in your faction, as well as new vehicle parts and scrap that can be used to make purchases.

There are a number of DLC packs you can buy to give you a head start in Crossout, but you really don’t need buy any of them to have fun. Honestly, if you’ve not tried it yet give it a go. Crossout is one of our favourite free-to-play games available right now.
