Xbox 360 gets free Gold weekend in US and Canada

No free weekend announced for Europe or Xbox One

All Xbox Live Gold features will be free this weekend for Xbox 360 owners in the US and Canada.

The free weekend will begin at 12:01 am PT on Friday and end at 11:59 pm on Sunday. Access to online multiplayer, Gold-exclusive online games, Netflix, and all other services normally reserved for subscribers will be available for all members.


Microsoft has announced no plans to offer a free Gold weekend outside of North America.

Though the weekend coincides with the kickoff for the free Titanfall beta on PC and Xbox One, no public beta has been announced for the 360 version of the game. We went hands-on with Titanfall on Xbox One this week.

The Xbox 360 edition, handled by developer Bluepoint, delayed until March 25 earlier this month.

The company announced in October that its Games with Gold program, which offers permanent downloads of select games for free to subscribers, will become an "ongoing benefit" of the service.
