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 canplay Skyrim for free on Xbox One this weekend.

This weekend #Xbox One users can return to Skyrim – for FREE – w/ our first ever free weekend for #SkyrimSpecialEdition

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.
