XCOM 2 is free to play this weekend for Xbox Live Gold members


Microsoft has fleshed out its Xbox Free Play Days lineup with the addition of alien-blasting sequel XCOM 2.

Alongside Just Cause 3, you’ll be able to take XCOM 2 for a spin this weekend without coughing up your hard-earned cash for the privilege. As long as you’re a member of Xbox Live Gold (and let’s face it, who isn’t these days?), you can start playing the strategy-fuelled title right now for free until 11.59 PST on Sunday, May 6.
