Limbo for Xbox One is currently free to download

Limbo, the acclaimed puzzle platformer game from developer Playdead, is currently free to download on the Xbox Store for Microsoft's Xbox One console.

The game normally costs $9.99 to download from the store. You need to be signed into your Xbox Live account to see the discount on the store page. It's unknown if this move is a temporary promotion or if Microsoft has made Limbo free forever on the Xbox One. Limbo was first released for the console in 2014 as a free game for everyone who bought the Xbox One early and was later released as a paid game for all Xbox One owners.

  • Hope its not an other error. Was a bit disappointed I didn't get if for being an early xbox one owner. Got the console about 6 months before official release here in sweden.

  • It let me "buy" it via the link in the article without ever having owned an Xbox.
