Microsoft will announce its plans for Games with Gold for July 2021 between Monday and Wednesday next week.
The announcement will include all four games available to download and play for free next month on Xbox One and Xbox Series X consoles.
This should include two games from Xbox One and two games from Xbox 360, with very few Xbox Series X titles included so far.
This could be seen as a frustrating situation for those with an Xbox Series X hoping to see another next-gen title added to the list.
But with more next-gen upgraded games set to be announced for Games with Gold in the months and years to come, there’s something to check out this weekend.
Players can download and play three titles at no additional cost until 7:59 a.m. BST Monday, if they have a Games with Gold or Xbox Game Pass membership.
And while many of these titles have been available for a while, gamers should note that one of them is getting an Xbox Series X upgrade.
Warhammer: Vermintide 2 was optimized for the Xbox Series X at the end of last year and comes with some notable improvements.
The new generation allows gaming a smoother console experience and includes support for 4K resolution with 60 frames per second.
The full list of games includes Overwatch and Saints Row IV: Re-Elected, although none have been officially listed as offering X Series upgrades on Microsoft’s site.
Descriptions can be found below for each of the three games that can be played for free over the next 24 hours:
