Battle Royale free on Xbox One this weekend, Square Enix announces

To celebrate the launch of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD.

Bloody horror Battle Royale will be free to watch this weekend on Xbox One, courtesy of Final Fantasy publisher Square Enix.


The offer will be available to all UK Xbox Live subscribers to celebrate the launch of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD.

Why? Well, both feature school kids and violence...?

You don't need to have bought the game to watch the film for free - just find it via the Xbox store anytime this Saturday 28th, or Sunday 29th March.

Final Fantasy Type-0 released last week and, more interestingly, also includes a demo of Final Fantasy 15.

Battle Royale launched back in 2000 and is one of the best, bloodiest examples of modern Japanese cinema and you owe it to yourself to experience it if you haven't already.

(And no, it is not just like The Hunger Games).
