Do you own an Xbox One, but somehow still haven't signed up for Xbox Live Gold? Or perhaps you've just let your subscription lapse? Well, good news – this weekend you can test out any online Xbox One or Xbox 360 game you want, for free! Microsoft is offering a complimentary Xbox Multiplayer All-Access this weekend (July 21 to 23), so now's your chance to test out all those multiplayer modes and games you may have missed out on! Here's how Microsoft describes the all-access:
Hey! You! Multiplayer is open to everyone on Xbox One and Xbox 360 from July 21-23. You'll be able to play with friends, and millions of potential friends, in any game you already own. Think it couldn't get any better? Be part of the Destiny 2 Open Beta on Xbox One for free on the same weekend! What are you waiting for?
As Microsoft mentions, the main reason for this free multiplayer weekend is the Destiny 2 open beta. The Destiny 2 beta kicked off this past Tuesday on PS4 and Wednesday for the Xbox One. The trial includes Destiny 2's opening story mission, The Inverted Spire co-op Strike, and the Countdown PvP Crucible mode. The Destiny 2 open beta runs until July 23.
While Destiny 2 is the reason Microsoft is giving away free multiplayer access, it isn't the only game you're free to test out. Everything from various Call of Duty games, to Injustice 2, to Xbox exclusives like Halo 5: Guardians and Gears or War 4 can also be played online without a subscription, so go crazy! And hey, if it turns out you like this online gaming stuff, Xbox Live Gold is just 10 bucks a month (or only 5 if you sign up for a year).
