It works on any PS4 or Xbox One game, although they don't have a ton of games to choose from, they do have quite a few newer games. Just add it to your cart and it'll show zero then go pick it up. This is the perfect opportunity for me to check out Detroit.

Just remember if you keep it past 9pm the next day you'll be charged $3 per day after.

Detroit was soooo good. You'll want to buy it when your done. Best of the Quantic Dream games. One of the best of the genre period and I've played all Quantic Dream games and most of the telltale games.

Does Detroit have that much replayability?  

 

Anyway, thanks for the heads up.  I try and use these free rental periods to beat games I haven't gotten around to buying.  This week will be CoD WW2.

Yes there's branching paths based off your choices.

If it's as good as you say I'm definitely excited for this weekend! If I like it I'll probably just get it Black Friday only 3.5 more months. Hopefully I can knock out 4 games from this backlog 😂

Used my girlfriend's account to re-rent Detroit free a second night lol. (of course had to return the copy I had and get another one) Really enjoying it.

I almost never replay games, even ones in this genre and I eventually want to replay it. There are so many branching paths and variables that can make a second play through vastly different.

This redbox promo might be different than past ones, but they've been doing these free game rental weeks pretty regularly for the past year and you're always able to rent repeatedly with the same account, i.e., you don't need to use another account for more free games. I've rented the same game like 4 times within ones of these weeks before.

You're right I didn't even try it, just now did it and still showed $0.

Yeah, I've had the same copy of CoD WW2 every night.  Rent it, return it, go inside Walmart and pick up a few items and while I'm in there open the app and rent CoD for free again, pay for my items, go outside and pick up my rental, repeat.

The day 1 patch is real with this one. 8GB on PS4 FYI to anyone with that rural internet.

It's optional. I've played a few hours of the game without a patch and I haven't encountered any bugs.

Read the patch notes and they fixed game ending bugs with this patch. I dont know how far into the game they come up but if you can spare the time it's worth patching.

I don't patch any of my games and time isn't the issue. It's important to me that all games remain playable long after official support has been dropped and the only way that can be achieved is if the entire game is on the disc.

Actually this may be the better way to go, I'm doing this one! Thanks for letting me know it's part of the free rental!

Thanks OP. Grabbed We Happy Few. Didn't have this game on my radar but looks worth free at least.

Detroit and WHF. Just need to make two accounts.

Multiple accounts aren't needed. You can get an unlimited number of free rentals on one account (2 per credit card). You just need to order them seperately, as long as your cart always contains only one game the discount will work repeatedly.

Rented Crew 2 to tide me over until FH4, not bad.  Returned then used wifes account, but also noticed I can rent free again on mine, so will try that tomorrow for 3 nights in a row.

Tried to take advantage of this and have used Redbox too many times to count, tried two different types of credit cards (Visa and Mastercard), both returned an error message.

 

"This card not approved for games"

 

WTF is that?

Wish these promos weren't only through the app. I'm in Seattle, which is a Switch test market, but, alas, no Switch games in the app.

Rented We Happy Few instead
