Free Xbox LIVE Gold Weekend For UK Region

By Andrew Ogley, 5 years ago
A very quick PSA for all our Silver Xbox LIVE members in the UK. Whilst recently we were able to report that Microsoft had announced a free Xbox LIVE weekend for certain regions, players in the UK region were sadly excluded. However, Microsoft have today redressed the balance by announcing a free Gold Weekend for the UK region only.

The event will run from 12:01 GMT Friday 3rd May (notice that´s one whole minute past midnight), through to 23:59 GMT on Sunday 5th May. During the event, all Silver members will have access to the Gold services including online multi-player for games, and Sky TV. To tempt players further, there is also a Gears of War: Judgment double XP event running at the same time.

As always, there are certain terms and conditions applied for the different services offered so it would be wise to check the exact details on the UK Xbox LIVE website.

Thanks to all the members of community for bringing this announcement to our attention.
