Fans only have a day left to download and play the latest Xbox free games trial from Microsoft.
Xbox Live Gold subscribers in the UK have until 8am on Monday, March 11, to try out Mortal Kombat 10 for free.
The free play day trial was released earlier this week by Microsoft and is just the latest in a long line of special demo weekends announced by the tech giant.
Fans can download Mortal Kombat on their Xbox One by clicking on the Gold member area on the home dashboard.
This is being billed as a way to test out the game franchise before Mortal Kombat 11 is released later this year.
“Get ready for the highly anticipated launch of Mortal Kombat 11 with a free weekend of Mortal Kombat X,” a message from Microsoft reads.
“Play through the cinematic story mode, and practice your finishing moves with new and iconic fighters.
“Once you’ve perfected your skills, pre-order Mortal Kombat 11 to get Beta access on March 28 and playable character – Shao Kahn.”
The game is also available to buy after the demo period so you can keep all your progress.
However, it doesn’t appear to be any kind of discount available, which makes sense given that the sequel isn’t far away.
This free game trial will be running out later this week; however, fans can also look forward to another downloadable title dropping soon too.
Many fans will already know that the official Games with Gold March 2019 lineup has been announced.
And the first of these titles are already available to download and play, including Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion on Xbox One and Star Wars Republic Commando.
But later this week there will be an Xbox Game Store refresh which will see Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance added to the lineup.
This is set to happen on Saturday, March 16 and will be available to all Xbox Live Gold subscribers.
This will be followed a week later with a possible update on what will be made available for Gold subscribers in April 2019.
For those who don’t know, Games with Gold offers free Xbox games to qualifying Xbox Live Gold members.
The program provides Gold members with free games every month, worth up to $700 per year, according to Microsoft.
Games with Gold is available to all Xbox Live Gold members, which can be redeemed from the Gold widget on the Xbox One home screen. Titles can also be found if you download the Xbox One SmartGlass app, and go to the Microsoft Store and then page right.
When you select a game, it’ll be stored in your account and ready for download when you sign in to your console.
It should also be noted that new Games with Gold titles become available on the first and the sixteenth day of every month.
There’s also a good chance that we will get another Xbox Live free trial of a new game next weekend, as it has become a new feature regularly delivered by Microsoft.
“These special events are exclusive to Gold members, giving you the opportunity to play select, fully featured hot games for free,” a message from the tech giant confirms.
“All points earned and purchased DLC carries over if you purchase the game at the end of the free period.”
