How to get Castle Crashers Remastered for Free

We released Castle Crashers Remastered (CCR) on Xbox One last week! This is our first game on Xbox One and it is currently free* in countries that currently have Castle Crashers Remastered as a special, limited promotion for legacy Castle Crashers Xbox 360 owners until September 20th! In case you missed the memo from last week, here’s how to get it for free* on Xbox One:
-Check that you own the full version of Castle Crashers for Xbox 360
You can do this by either logging into your Xbox Live account on your Xbox 360 or on
-Check that you have a current Xbox Live Gold membership on that profile
-Using that same profile, go to the Xbox One Store and search for Castle Crashers Remastered. If you are logged in, it should list the full version of CCR as $14.99 $0.00 (FREE*)

–> If the price is listed as $14.99, please wait to purchase and contact Microsoft support.
-At this point, the store might ask for your credit card information. Please note that a registered payment method on Xbox One is required for the free* download for the Xbox 360 edition owners but your card will not be charged.
*Note that it is only free through September 20, 2015. After that date, the legacy discount becomes $5.00 for owners of Castle Crashers on Xbox 360. On Xbox One and Xbox 360, Xbox Live Gold membership (sold separately) required.

  1. I don’t mean to be a pain, but is there any news on the Australian release date/approval? I’m keen to play through the new release of CC with my daughter.

      • Sadly does not work, a payment transaction is required even though $0 and my payment details are localised to Australia.

        Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime has appeared on the Australian store, but still no CCR with only one day to go 🙁

  2. can sombodey plz tell me how to get hatty hattington for free without trancfer frome the 360 to xbox one i relly want to know

  3. Tried Xbox Support to get my free remastered copy since I own the 360 version. After an hour of support, they told me to contact the developer. Whats the deal?

  4. Yup and missed out because it wasn’t released in australia. Thanks a lot. The least you could have done was respond. Fat chance i’m going to be buying it again, or any other of your games for that matter

    • Its not Behemoth’s fault the Aus classification board are slow and stupid. Dangerous Spacetime was only approved a few days ago, wonder how long between the submission for that was versus CCR?
