Xbox users on Xbox One, Xbox One X, Xbox One S, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and even Xbox 360 can now download – for a limited time – an original 2004 Xbox game for free. That said, there is a caveat. To download this free Xbox game, you must have a subscription to Xbox Live Gold, the Xbox version of PlayStation Plus, which gives subscribers free games every month. That said, this game is not among the July Free Games or August Free Games. Rather, it is an additional gift, and a surprise at it.
If you subscribed to Xbox Live Gold on any of the aforementioned platforms, you can currently download MX unleashed free. It is not known why this game was made free for subscribers or how long it will be free for subscribers, but at the moment, as at the time of publication, it is 100% free.
Developed by Rainbow Studios and published by THQ, MX unleashed released in 2004, hit in 2004, and was both a commercial and critical success on release, selling around a million copies, which was a lot for the time, and getting a solid 81 on Metacritic.
“Rainbow Studios is returning to its legacy to bring the definitive next-gen off-road game to life,” an official pitch for the game read. “With huge free world environments and an expanded racing career mode, MX Unleashed is a great off-road playground. If you want more intense action, fight with a monster truck, helicopter or biplane! “
If you’re not currently an Xbox Live Gold subscriber, don’t worry about missing out on this giveaway. The game is good, but it has also been made free for subscribers on a number of occasions. So if you become a subscriber soon, there is hope that you can score the game for free in the future.
