If you are an Xbox Live member and a Game of Thrones fan, you can now watch the season 4 premiere for free, courtesy of Microsoft and HBO. The episode titled “Two Swords” debuted exclusively on HBO on April 6, but it will now be available to stream on the Xbox 360 and Xbox One today through April 14.

Simply sign on to Xbox Live today and through the rest of the week, and you’ll see a new Game of Thrones tile. Clicking it opens up a handful of video content along with the episode, including trailers, behind-the-scenes videos, featurettes, and interviews. You do not need an HBO Go subscription, nor do you even need an Xbox Live Gold membership.

So sit back, relax, and then watch as HBO and George R.R. Martin dash your dreams by killing off one of your favorite characters (not that we still hold a grudge from last season…). If you want to access the rest of the season via the Xbox though, you’ll need to sign up for HBO through your cable TV provider.

Don’t miss this great sci-fi RPG while it’s free on the Epic Games Store
Parvati fights in The Outer Worlds.

The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition will be one of the next free games offered on the Epic Games Store, and that's a can't-miss freebie for fans of RPGs or sci-fi.

The Outer Worlds: Spacer's Choice Edition is the complete version of a 2019 RPG from Obsidian Entertainment. Although it was much smaller in scale than some AAA RPGs like Starfield, that more limited scope allows The Outer Worlds to emphasize player choice in gameplay and narrative. This is one of those RPGs where you can kill pretty much any NPC walking around, even ones important to the ongoing story, and see how the results play out. The Outer Worlds has tons of replay value for that reason alone.

Xbox Game Pass loses some horror greats, but gains a kid-friendly racing game
A custom car built drives around Lego 2K Drive.

We've learned what games will come to Xbox Game Pass over the first half of this April, and leading the batch is Lego 2K Drive, a Lego racing game that's a solid alternative to the Forza Horizon games that are also available on Microsoft's subscription service.

Lego 2K Drive was released in May 2023 and is an enjoyable racing game where players can build their own Lego vehicles and race throughout several open worlds. It found the middle ground between the likes of Mario Kart and Forza Horizon and thrives in that space, even if the microtransactions can be a little aggressive for a game aimed at children. Playground Games has not yet confirmed if another Forza Horizon game is in the works at this time, so Xbox fans can play this game to fill that void until a new one is announced.
