Many people, mostly non-gamers, think that games on Xbox One can only be classified into two categories; they are either really good yet costly or they are free and still not worth the space they occupy in the system’s internal memory. This thought is simply baseless because there are many titles that are fun and free. And we are not talking about the trials or demos of big-time title or the live gold membership due to which Hitman and Earth Defense Force 2025 Are Now Free For Xbox for September 2019. We mean complete games that are enjoyable and can be played without buying or subscribing to it. They may need some in-game purchases for extra features but the base content is free. So if you’re new to gaming and a bit low on cash, here’s our list of the best Xbox One games that you can play for absolutely free:


You may remember it as a minigame in Witcher 3, Gwent got so popular that it became its own game. Despite the number of characters and power-ups inspired by the series, you don’t need to play any other Witcher game to get a hang of it. Or even luck. Unlike most card games, you simply need to apply strategy by understanding how different card combinations affect the game. It doesn’t make the game any easier to master which is part of the fun.

DC Universe Online

Your chances of victory depend on your ability to strategize, every move has to be well planned to avoid having your machine blow up from multiple artillery. It’s the part that makes the game so addictive.

Fortnite: Battle Royale

This list would simply be incomplete without mentioning this heartthrob. You probably came here to confirm if it’s the best or for free.
