The Best Free Xbox One Games of 2019

Xbox One F2P May 2019

With so much money being generated by high-profile free-to-play games, it’s unsurprising to see the industry taking the model seriously on every major platform. We’ve done our share of groaning about the nickel-and-diming tactics found on the App Store and Google Play, but there’s still much to enjoy about the free-to-play model when it’s done well.

Frankly, it’s beyond silly to write off the model entirely when there’s so much critical and commercial success. Clearly, this is more than just a passing fad, and console devs are working hard to get some of that alluring micro-transaction cash. Now let’s jump in, and explore what free and free-to-play games have to offer for the average Xbox One or Xbox One XSEEAMAZON_ET_135 See Amazon ET commerce player.

I’d buy that for a dollar

While console gamers have grown accustomed to dropping $60 (or more) on a game, it’s good to see more variety in the marketplace. And just like a large price tag may not fit a small-scale indie game, it’s important to remember that the free-to-play model isn’t one-size-fits-all either.

F2P is definitely here to stay, but not at the expense of other business models — in conjunction. Poorly made free-to-play games can easily leave a bad taste in your mouth, but it’s not fair to dismiss the entire concept outright. After all, we’ve seen numerous free-to-play games on the PC garner massive critical acclaim, and the concept is still relatively novel on consoles. Give these games a chance, and you might just find a game that you really love.
