 "Meg Turney and Ryan Haywood bring you a fun dose of outrageous Internet videos, gaming news, and zany challenges. Plus, interviews and exclusive clips from Rooster Teeth's latest projects."

- Official website

Free Play was a series starring Ryan Haywood and Meg Turney, covering gaming news and some behind the scenes clips from Rooster Teeths' latest projects, while competing each week to best one another in a host of different challenges.

On certain weeks, Meg and Ryan will also challenge Mariel Salcedo and Tyler Coe.

The shows followed a rather irregular schedule, with some weeks having 2 or 3 episodes.

The was essentially fantastic variety show hosted by Meg Turney and Ryan Haywood. The show started its first season as an RT site exclusive and wasn’t published on YouTube until its second season. The show’s main cast were Ryan & Meg with Tyler & Mariel being their secondaries plus anyone else they had as special guests doing skits, challenges, and activities that were always fun to watch. The show was lit up by Meg’s upbeat personality and really showed us Ryan’s “silly dad” side. Free Play had guests such as Alan Ritchson and Johnny Mundo from Lucha Underground who each performed various challenged and taught Ryan and Tyler how to wrestle. The show was always fun and everyone on it seemed to enjoy the whole production.

On June 27, 2016, after two full years of employment and with the beginning of RTX 2016 only 4 days away, Meg Turney, the main co-host officially announced her departure from Rooster Teeth in this video (subreddit discussions here and here). But with Meg’s departure from RT due to scheduling issues (and her own career pursuits which violated and terminated RT company policies, resulting in her dismissal, but in a friendly way and no bad blood between both parties) it was confirmed to be cancelled, ended and is not forecasted to return. Subreddit discussion can be found here. The last episode was #65 and released on July 8, 2016.
