New Xbox One free games available to enjoy this weekend
Xbox Live Gold members can download three new titles this weekend with the help of the Free Play Days programme.

From now until the early hours of Monday, October 12, Xbox One gamers with a Gold subscription can enjoy the following titles at no extra charge:
Saints Row IV: Re-Elected

These new free games trials have been launched for a limited time alongside the current crop of Games With Gold freebies.
Maid of Sker will be added to the lineup on October 16 with Costume Quest from the Xbox 360.
The full lineup includes the following games:
Slayaway Camp: Butcher’s Cut
Paying homage to classic ‘80s trash horror, play as Skullface, an adorably demented villain, out to terrorize camp counselors and any other blocky victims he finds. New dimensions of absurd terror and over 300 fiendish puzzles await in this isometric puzzle game.
Maid of Sker
Do not panic, don’t even breathe! Set in a remote hotel with a macabre and gory history, use stealth tactics to stay alive against a cult of sound-based enemies. Inspired by chilling tales in Welsh folklore, do your best to survive and brave the nightmares of the Quiet Ones.
Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy
Inspired by the mythology of ancient Egypt, play as Sphinx, and his reluctant hero friend, the Mummy, as they travel the world to foil the evil plans of Set. Use stealth, agility, and special powers to find the stolen magical crowns of Egypt and save the world.
Collect super-powered magical costumes and level up your hero in the monster-filled neighborhoods of Auburn Pines. Complete numerous quests, build up your party, and take down evil in the Halloween tale that will capture the imagination of kids and the kids-at-heart.
