On the Xbox Wire, it was revealed that the latest Free Play Days event has begun today, January 21st. The event will run through January 24th. The event will be available to Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members, and will feature three games. 

The first game that will be available to play for free this weekend is Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning. Re-Reckoning comes from the minds of R.A. Salvatore, Todd McFarlane, and Ken Rolston. In this RPG, players will explore a vast world, from the vibrant city of Rathir to the grim dungeons of Brigand Hall Caverns. This remastered version of the original Kingdoms of Amalur features refined gameplay and stunning visuals. 

The second game available this weekend is Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint. It has been discovered that Sentinel is selling a dangerous neurotoxic gas to world arms dealers. R6 Operators Ash, Finka, and Thatcher are sent to Auroa in order to deal with this threat. Once there, they will have to breach Sentinel's lab to stop production of the neurotoxic gas, as well as find intel on an antidote. 

The final game that will be available to play this weekend is WWE 2K Battlegrounds. Gamers will be able to choose their favorite WWE Superstars and Legends in this arcade-brawler, including Hulk Hogan, Roman Reigns, Ric Flair, Becky Lynch, John Cena, and more. Gamers will be able to take on their friends in online of offline multiplayer in interactive environments. 

If gamers choose to play these three games after the weekend ends, they can buy them at a discount. Discounts will go up to 85% off of this weekend's featured games, and can be seen here. All progress from the Free Play Days event will carry over, including player's Gamerscore and earned achievements.
