Skyrim is having a free weekend on Xbox One in case you somehow don't own it


Who is this for?

[Update: It slipped through my ever vigilant eyes, but you'll be able to enjoy adventuring in Skyrim on Steam as well as Xbox One this weekend.]

If you've just learned what video games are this morning there's a chance you don't own a copy of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

If you fit into this incredibly small group of people I have good news, you can play Skyrim for free on Xbox One this weekend.


I'm not really sure who Bethesda thinks this will persuade to buy the game at this point, but when everyone owns twelve copies of your game there really isn't a whole lot to lose.
