Halo Wars 2 and Conan Exiles are both free to play this weekend for Xbox Live Gold subscribers. What’s more, should you decide that you want to buy either game at their currently heavily-discounted price, then all progress made during the free trials will carry over. PC players will also find the Halo Wars: Definitive Edition free to experience until Oct. 21. Not bad!

In celebration of the game’s single-player campaign release, Hover Junkers is free to play for this weekend. If you are lucky enough to own an HTC Vive or Oculus Rift and have a big enough space to play in, you’ll want to give this room-scale multiplayer shooter a go! In the game, you pilot your own hovercraft, building up defenses while trying to take down the enemy. Just make sure to avoid running into real-life walls!
