Xbox Live Gold subscribers on Xbox One, Xbox One S, Xbox One X, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X have two secret free games in addition to the lineup officially announced in November. That said, there are a few hurdles you need to jump over to download and play these two secret free games, but neither includes opening your wallet. Specifically, in addition to the November lineup, subscribers can currently download both Dark abyss and Hurricane Hydro Thunder, for free, via Xbox GWG South Africa and Xbox GWG Brazil, respectively.
So what are the obstacles? Well, you need to create an account in these regions to download the games to your console. That said, your subscription will carry over, so you won’t need to spend any extra money to do so. And once downloaded, the games are yours as long as you maintain an active Xbox Live Gold membership. If your subscription expires, you will lose access to these games.
Below, you can learn more about each game and check out a trailer for each game:
Dark Abyss: “Dark abyss is a sci-fi action-adventure game that combines the adrenaline rush of air combat and ground combat. Set in a parallel universe called “The Void”, players take on the role of Will, a pilot fallen under incredible circumstances within the mysterious Void. This unlikely hero soon finds himself embroiled in a desperate struggle for his survival, joining forces with a group of rebellious humans called The Survivors. Trapped in the Void, these resistance fighters fight to repel a mysterious alien race that plans to threaten Earth. “
Hurricane Hydro Thunder: “Hurricane Hydro Thunder is the adrenaline-pumping sequel to the classic arcade racing game, with rocket ships racing through interactive environments on an incredible dynamic water surface. “
