Xbox Live Gold goes free this weekend

Microsoft's Xbox Live Gold subscription service is free to access on Xbox 360 consoles this weekend, making Xbox entertainment apps and online multiplayer gameplay available for all Xbox Live members in the United States and Canada.

While the free weekend coincides with the upcoming beta launch of Titanfall, the offer does not extend to Xbox One consoles; beta testers will need a paid Xbox Live Gold membership to participate. As an alternative, the free weekend marks a solid opportunity to check out Wargaming's free-to-play online multiplayer game World of Tanks, which launched this week.

The free weekend begins at 12:01 a.m. PST tomorrow, and extends through 11:59 p.m. PST on Sunday.
