Xbox Original Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction goes free on Xbox One thanks to Games With Gold

-

It may be rather old, but due to the combined power of Xbox Backwards Compatibility and Games With Gold, the Xbox Original title Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction is now available to download for free to play on both Xbox One and Xbox 360.

Over 13 years ago, Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction released on the original Xbox and brought us a sandbox world of chaos like we’ve seldom seen before. There are three characters to choose from; Jennifer Mui, a former MI6 agent; Chris Jacobs, a former Delta Force operative; and Mattias Nilsson, who was once part of the Swedish Navy. Essentially, you’re playing the role of a lethal mercenary employed by ExOps to do the bidding of any faction requesting your services and destroying whatever gets in your way using a multitude of weapons in the process. Expect to be able to roam relatively freely, cause plenty of explosions and hijack any vehicle you wish to in this destructive experience from yesteryear.

Whilst it usually costs £8.99, Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction is currently stripped of its price tag on the Xbox Store as part of Games With Gold for December from now until the end of the month for Xbox Live Gold Members. Whether you should delve into this ancient offering or not is up to you, but whatever your decision, be sure to let us know!

You’ve got until 31st December to make up your mind…

Game Description:

Anything goes in this Playground of Destruction. You are a lethal Mercenary. Your mission is to topple a sinister military regime by any means necessary. If it drives or flies, you can hijack it. If it shoots or explodes, you can use it as a weapon. You are free to go anywhere, destroy anything and blow the crap out of everything. In this playground of destruction, there are no limits, no barriers and no mercy.

Been gaming casually since the SNES as a youngster but found my true passion for games on the Playstation 1 (the forbidden word ooo). My addiction grew to its pinnacle with the purchase of an Xbox 360 & Xbox Live Service. A recovering GS hunter that will still play literally any game.
