Online Multiplayer for Free-to-Play Games Unlocked Starting Today

Today, we are sharing more details on our plans to make online multiplayer in free-to-play games available on Xbox without an Xbox Live Gold membership. As part of listening to your feedback, this change will take place starting today, and all Xbox players will be able to access online multiplayer at no charge for a library of over 50 free-to-play games that support online multiplayer.

The full list of more than 50 free-to-play games is available on Xbox.com and below; the Xbox.com list will be updated as more free-to-play games launch.  For more information about these changes and your Xbox membership options, please visit our FAQ.

Editor’s Note (4/21/21): We’ve removed Battle Ages, Battle Islands, and Gems of War from the list because they do not support Online Multiplayer. These games are still free to play without an Xbox Live Gold membership.
