Xbox Live Gold is free this weekend along with a bunch of game trials

NBA 2K18, Overwatch, Rainbow Six Siege!

Have no plans for this weekend? Why not stay home and check out some NBA 2K18 on Xbox One? Don’t have a real interest in sports games? You can also download Overwatch or Rainbow Six Siege and get to shooting. But wait, don’t those require Xbox Live Gold to experience all the fun? Why yes, they do, but Microsoft has a nice surprise waiting for you, non-subscriber!

Starting today and lasting until February 18 at 11:59 pm PST, anyone with an Xbox 360 or Xbox One will get free multiplayer to play anything their heart desires. The aforementioned three games will be available as trials for players with Xbox One’s, regardless of whether they are currently subscribed or not. This could make for some great weekend plans, providing you actually have the hardware necessary.

At least if you don’t own an Xbox Live, Overwatch and Rainbow Six will still have free play weekends on their other available platforms. I know that isn’t a replacement for seeing LeBron James’ digital visage, but I’ll take it.

Xbox Live multiplayer free for all Xbox users this weekend, and Xbox One users can play NBA 2K18 free [VG 24/7]
