Microsoft fans are no stranger to Xbox Live Gold, the company’s online multiplayer subscription allowing players to battle or play co-op with each other. While you don’t need a Gold plan to hop on free-to-play games like Apex Legends and Fortnite, it’s still a prerequisite for the upcoming multiplayer titles such as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (2022).

Whether you recently purchased a new Xbox Series X or S or need to renew your subscription, you can get three months of Xbox Live Gold for $20. With this membership, you can access the matchmaking portion of paid games, new free titles every month, exclusive store discounts and more.

A couple of Xbox Live’s main benefits are Clubs and Looking for Group. The former essentially works as a clan builder, allowing you to discover, join or create communities of like-minded players to chat and co-op in games. The latter is great for making ragtag parties to complete quests or dominate a multiplayer lobby. And with Xbox Live Gold, you’re not restricted to any titles your new friends might want to try.

Additionally, Gold members can claim between two and four free games each month, and titles can come from the Series X|S, One and original Xbox libraries. This month’s games include Gods Will Fall, Double Kick Heroes and Portal 2, giving gamers a good mix of action, rhythm and puzzle-solving enjoyment.

Finally, if you want to expand your library even quicker, your Gold subscription offers store discounts of up to 75 percent off on select Xbox One games. That means you can relive last generation’s greatest titles like Gears of War 4 and Red Dead Redemption 2.

If you don’t intend to just play single-player games, a Gold membership can ensure you don’t miss out on the competition online. You can purchase a three-month subscription to Xbox Live Gold for just $20, down from $25.
