The best free games on Xbox One

2 6

The Xbox One has been around for more than eight years, and during that time it has amassed a sizeable collection of free-to-play games across several different genres. If you can’t afford (or just don’t want to) spend cash on a game or you’re just not sure if you’re going to like the latest hit, free-to-play games on Xbox One are a great option. And if you’re holding out to buy an Xbox Series X, having all that extra cash is a big help. We’ve rounded up the best free Xbox One games so you can have a great time without breaking or even touching the bank. Don’t even think about a bank, in fact–unless you start buying microtransactions in any of these games, of course.

It’s fitting that Apex Legends–a spin-off of the criminally underappreciated Titanfall and Titanfall 2–would also happen to be one of the best free-to-play games on Xbox One. Set in the same universe as the Titanfall games but with a hero-based battle royale spin, Apex Legends draws just as much inspiration from Call of Duty and Overwatch as it does from Titanfall. With an emphasis on the different playable characters’ unique roles, team composition is an important part of success, and both the maps’ verticality and plethora of gear you can pick up add an element of strategy not seen in some other online shooters.

Bless Unleashed

A successor to Bless Online, which survived just a year on PC before getting shut down, Bless Unleashed is a new-ish free-to-play MMORPG option on Xbox One, the first from Bandai Namco on a console. Players start off the game as a ward of a powerful priestess whose island is attacked by an evil force known as the Faceless. The attack on this peaceful island was just a piece of a more destructive plot though, and it’s up to the player to unravel the mystery through a long, fantastical adventure.

Early reviewers have called attention to a clunky combat system and repetitive NPCs and side quests, but others have praised it for its challenging, yet easy to pick-up leveling system and creature design. The game is still new to Xbox and developers are regularly updating it — expect improvements the longer the game is out, with plenty of input from players.

Could there possibly be a list of the best free-to-play games without Fortnite? The most popular video game on the planet–and one that has remained on top for several years–Fortnite’s success story is odd in that it began its life without having its signature battle royale mode at all. Since that pivot, however, it’s grown into a juggernaut, complete with in-game concerts, crossovers, with just about every major franchise you can think of, and a bizarre in-universe lore that has made way for massive changes to the battle royale map. With cross-play support, you can play it with friends on just about any system, too.

Free now after previously costing 20 bucks for years, Rocket League seems like it was conceived by a seven-year-old who wasn’t paying attention during class. Essentially a big game of soccer but with rocket-powered cars in place of the players, the hectic sport sees vehicles zipping across the pitch and through the air as they attempt to knock the giant ball into their opponents’ goal while defending their own. While a simple enough premise in theory, Rocket League is very difficult to master, with the best players maintaining expert control as they knock a ball into the net.

If you thought Titanfall was a cool concept but were discouraged by the fact that half the game takes place on foot (or if you were a big Gundam Wing fan), Hawken just might be for you. This game is unforgiving to new players, but spend some time with it and you’ll find that few things are as enjoyable as piloting a big mech to victory. Players choose from more than 30 different mechs, each with different abilities and niches to fill, and — of course — lots of different weapons.
