In order to start playing the games, you’ll have to head over and install them on Xbox.com, or on the Xbox Store on your Xbox console, which will have its own Free Play Days collection. If you enjoy the game enough want to pick it up, you’ll be able to purchase the game and other editions of it at a limited time discount and continue playing with everything you’ve earned during the Free Play Days.

Saints Row IV: Re-Elected takes the Saints Row saga to a new level as the Boss of the Saints (who is also now the President of United States of America) tries to save the world from a deadly alien invasion. Overwatch Origins Edition should need no introduction but is a Blizzard-developed team-based shooter that features a diverse cast of heroes and classes. Overwatch also just got Cross-Play functionality, so you can jump into a game with your friends on other platforms as well. Finally, Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is a four-player co-op game set within the Warhammer Fantasy Battle world, and sees friends team up to fight through waves of enemy hordes.
