Everyone can enjoy multiplayer games - and Minecraft

The Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions of Minecraft are free to play this weekend.

While Xbox Live is an ideal service when it comes to getting free games and playing online with friends, that doesn't mean that everyone has it. This applies to those who have a Silver account for all multiplayer games that they already own.

Additionally, Microsoft is offering a "limited time free unlock" of Minecraft: Xbox One Edition, allowing Xbox One and One S owners to try out the blocky world-building game without buying it first. Here's what Major Nelson, Larry Hyrb, had to say as he announced the event, "Need something new to play?" "Experience one of the most popular benefits of Xbox Live Gold membership with access to the most advanced gaming network", the company noted in its announcement. There isn't a better game to test this with unlike Minecraft. The title can can be downloaded from the digital store, and is completely playable until 11:59 p.m. PT on May 21.
