On the Epic Games Store on PC, you can play Far Cry 6 as much as you can this weekend. Storefront is offering an extended free trial of Ubisoft’s latest open-world first-person shooter. Deals on Far Cry 6 aren’t very uncommon these days (though the PC version sees fewer discounts than the console versions), and even then, it’s really hard to beat the current cost: $0.00.

The game trial is also available for Xbox and PlayStation gamers. You don’t need a subscription of any kind on the PlayStation console to get access to the free trial. However, on Xbox, you’ll need Xbox Live Gold (or the modern equivalent, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate).
