Xbox Live Drops Subscription Requirement For Free-To-Play Games Today
A very long era has finally ended because as of today, Xbox players no longer need an Xbox Live Gold subscription to access free-to-play multiplayer games. More than 50 games that were previously locked behind the subscription’s paywall are now available to all Xbox players.
Free-to-play now means free-to-play.
Starting now, all Xbox players can access these free-to-play games with or without an Xbox Live Gold subscription: https://t.co/krFop3Qkg6 pic.twitter.com/CVbRK2hpus

The game list includes a huge number of games such as Fortnite, Apex Legends, Destiny 2, Call of Duty: Warzone, and Warframe. Some unexpected games like Resident Evil Revelations 2 and Too Human–the latter of which was previously removed from sale after a court ruling–are also included in the list.
The change came about following players’ displeasure at Microsoft’s plan to raise the price of Xbox Live Gold, though the change wasn’t going to affect those who already had recurring payments turned on. Following the backlash, however, Microsoft decided not to increase the price for anyone and announced that free-to-play games would no longer require Xbox Live Gold.
