This Weekend's Xbox Live Gold Free Play Days: EA SPORTS UFC 3

By Sam Quirke, 23 days ago
As part of a player's Xbox Live Gold subscription, one or more games are offered for players to try out during Xbox Live Gold Free Play Days. The Free Play Days tend to run over a weekend. We've just picked up on our scanners that from today, Xbox Live Gold members can try out MMA simulator EA SPORTS UFC 3. Don't expect to smash out an achievement completion though – the ratio is punishingly high.


You can unlock achievements during the weekend but unless you've already played a fair amount, it's going to be impossible to get the below Ultimate Team trophy. As mossfan563 says in their guide, it's a big old grind. Just under 16,000 tracked Xbox gamers have the game and only 97 have this final achievement.
