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.
