Dontnod Entertainment's episodic adventure title, Tell Me Why, is currently entirely free on Xbox.
The title, which launched in 2020, is episodic in nature, but all three of its chapters are available at no charge from the Xbox store.
Xbox's Tell Me Why Is Free Right Now
As per the game's Xbox store description:
Tell Me Why is the latest narrative adventure game from DONTNOD Entertainment, the studio behind the beloved franchise, Life Is Strange. In this intimate mystery, twins Tyler and Alyson Ronan use their special bond to unravel the memories of their loving but troubled childhood in beautiful small-town Alaska.
You can add chapters one, two and three to your Xbox account here.
At the time of writing, there hasn't been any official announcement as to why the game is free, but with the title featuring a transgender protagonist, it could be that it's being released for free as part of Pride Month.
Tell Me Why is also part of Xbox Game Pass on console and PC, and the Steam version remains full price.
We'll update this story as we hear more.
