Xbox LIVE Gold Unlocked Weekend in Progress

By Rebecca Smith, 2 years ago
Are you an Xbox 360 player that doesn't currently have an Xbox LIVE Gold membership? Have you got some elusive online achievements to get? Maybe you just feel like having a blast in some online multiplayer with your friends. Well, if the last few statements apply to you, you'll be interested to learn that Microsoft has begun a Gold Unlocked weekend today. From now until 11.59PM on October 12th, Xbox LIVE Free/Silver players will be able to join their friends online without the need for a Gold membership.

The weekend is currently taking place in all regions with the exception of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Japan, Mexico and Morocco. Xbox LIVE Free members will not be able to download the free Games With Gold during this period, nor will they be able to take advantage of the Deals with Gold. The weekend is also not available for Xbox One players.

Thanks to the members of the community who sent this one in!
