Know someone who owns a Xbox 360 and inexplicably doesn’t have a Xbox Live Gold subscription? Then let them know that over this weekend they can play online for free curtesy of Microsoft.
Starting today (1st April) and running until Sunday 3rd April, gamers playing on Xbox 360 can play online with friends and enemies alike without the need to pay for a Xbox Live Gold subscription. This offer will allow them to play any of the latest and greatest Xbox 360 titles including Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Grand Theft Auto Online, Minecraft and many, many more titles.
It is worth noting that this offer is only available to Xbox 360 owners, those with Xbox One consoles will require a gold subscription in order to play online. However anyone taking advantage of this offer can play alongside Xbox One gamers through backwards compatibility. The free weekend offer only extends to online play and won’t grant any of the other advantages of the Xbox Live Gold subscription such as the Games with Gold and Deals with Gold promotions.
