The survival game Vigor will be free-to-play on Xbox One the weekend of August 8, Bohemia Interactive has announced. The free weekend will let you sample the Xbox timed exclusive game, currently in early access (or “Game Preview,” as Xbox calls it) to put it through its paces.
The free period will last through August 11, and comes right alongside the recent 0.9 Update. That update, nicknamed “Aid,” made big changes to the shooting mechanics and introduced new features like weapon skins, daily challenges, customization, spectator mode, gestures, and more.
So far more than half a million players have tried Vigor, and Bohemia says this free weekend is aimed at expanding the player base and testing new features ahead of its free-to-play release coming later this summer. If you enjoy the free time and want to keep playing, you can purchase a Founder’s Pack for $20 / 20 Euro and get some extra loot.
Vigor is a survival game set in Norway, from the studio behind DayZ. Bohemia previously explained that Sony’s lack of an early access program led it to launch Vigor exclusively for Xbox, at least at first. It will come to PS4 sometime later. A PC release has not been announced.
