[XB1, XSX, PC] Free - Tell Me Why @ Microsoft Store

2750

Credit to PressStart

Tell Me Why: Chapters 1-3 look to be free on the Microsoft Store for Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Windows 10 PC. It’s unclear if this is a mistake or a promotion that has gone live before announcement.
We gave the game an 8/10 in our review and said: Tell Me Why is a Dontnod game throughout its every part, right down to its bones. Although those bones might be bare, it has a lot of soul. With care, Dontnod dive into discomfort and drag us with them throughout three concise episodes that explore the power that comes coupled with familial ties, both bound by blood and by the metaphysical, as well as memory and all of its heartbreaking deceptions.

          Just once, no one wants to hear me complaining in any ongoing sense

      That's pretty generous of them. Great to keep the game all under my Steam library too.

          After claiming the product, it now says "You own this product" on all three items.

          I can also install it on my Windows 10 PC (you do need to install the base game first before installing Ch2 + Ch3 otherwise you run into an install error)

            @scrimshaw: I only have access to Chapter 1 regardless of what it says.
            Would not make sense to give three chapters on Xbox and one on Steam.

  •  

    Yay, all 3 free [even though info says 1st only] s'pose it's 'cause it's Xbox Studios (Lotsa Microsoft Studios are free or cheap)!

    Is it hard to make arrangements with yourself, when you're old enough to repay but young enough to sell?

        Free MS games are an investment that's bound to pay off eventually, just waiting for the day to sell my account full of freebies. #stonks

      Game is developed by Xbox Game Studios, Chapter 1 should be free on all platforms but 1-3 free only on MS Store.

    Game doesn't work for me. Installed chapter 1 twice and every time I start It I get the following error message and the game won't load. I searched the net and see other people are having the same problem with chapters 2 and 3 now working.
