Online Multiplayer Free For All This Weekend & Battlefront II Open Beta

Microsoft have announced that this weekend, all Xbox gamers – both Xbox 360 and Xbox One will have free access to Xbox Live gold features including online multiplayer.

However, you will still need an Xbox Live Gold subscription if you wish to take advantage of Games with Gold or any Gold exclusive discounts.

What’s more, is that you can take part in the Star Wars: Battlefront II open beta this weekend as part of this weekend’s Free Play Days.

Both the Battlefront II beta and free Xbox Live runs from today through to Monday 9th October.

Will you be downloading the Battlefront beta or taking part in free online multiplayer, if you’re not already a Gold subscriber? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below.
