Windows & Xbox Free Movie Weekend is back with free ‘Forbidden Empire’
Forbidden from purchasing or renting a movie this weekend on your Xbox One, Xbox 360 or Windows device? Fret not humble device owner. Windows & Xbox Free Movie Weekend has returned to save you from your weekend stint of boredom. The company is allowing anyone with a Microsoft Account to rent Forbidden Empire free of charge.
Forbidden Empire takes you on a trip to foreign lands, where magic, dangerous animals and violence lurk behind every corner. The film stars Jason Flemying and Charles Dance. Microsoft is offering the movie rental to anyone with access to the Windows Store. That means Xbox One, Xbox 360, Windows 10 Mobile and Windows Phone 8.1 users can add the rental to their collection. Microsoft used to allow users to stream video content through its Xbox Video website, but that feature seems to have disappeared without a trace recently. Once someone hits play, they have two days to watch Forbidden Empire before it stops working.
The free rental disappears on Monday morning, but you’ll still be able to hit play after its disappeared from the marque of the Windows Store.
