Play Free Xbox Games from the Comfort of Your Couch

We here on focus on free-to-play online games and mobile games. This should come as no surprise to our avid readers. If you’re familiar with the video games industry and happen to spend time in forums, you will probably have heard of the master race discussion. PC gamers like to claim that they are the master race of gaming. Why? Because they play games on the advanced hardware of their computers, they have the widest selection of available games, and they have access to online games. This is their proof that they are indeed superior to console gamers. However, sometimes it is just much more relaxing to sit down on the couch, take a controller in your hand, and enjoy your favorite video game on your huge television screen. Up until a few years ago this meant not only purchasing a console, but also games to play on it. This could end up getting quite expensive - something we don’t condone, as you all know. Luckily, in recent years, some Xbox games have also become free-to-play! This makes your dream of playing free-to-play games on your couch come true. What kinds of Xbox games are available for free? What are some of the differences between them and free online games on PC? Find out here…

Xbox Live as Your Portal to Online Gaming

Before you can start playing a free Xbox game, you will have to register an Xbox Live account. This is your key to downloading any title you want. There’s no need to worry though, as the registration will only take place once. As soon as you have your account, you can browse through the selection of free Xbox games. How does playing on a console compare to playing on a PC? Let’s find out:

  • Play with a controller instead of your keyboard and mouse
  • Play adaptations of PC games or standalone console games
  • Play from the comfort of your couch
  • Experience cross-platform gameplay between players of Xbox 360 and Xbox One

Two Different Console Generations

If you’re familiar with the gaming industry, you know that there is more than just one generation of consoles. Microsoft’s console for the former generation was Xbox 360 and their console for the newer generation is Xbox One. Luckily, there are free-to-play Xbox games for both generations of consoles. Even better, some of these titles are cross-platform compatible allowing you to play against or with players from either one of these consoles. There are all kinds of free Xbox games which are available online. Particularly shooters are popular, but there is such a wide array of available titles and genres that it is impossible to pinpoint them. Many of the available free Xbox games are unique adaptations of PC franchises, such as World of Tanks. However, more than just being mere carbon copies of the PC games, these Xbox One Games were developed from scratch, making sure that both the gameplay and presentation are flawless. You wouldn’t want to play an MMO with inaccurate controls, right? Yeah, thought so. No need to worry about that with most Xbox games...
