50 Free-to-Play Games Which Don’t Need Xbox Live Gold

Delivering on a January promise, Microsoft announced today that players will no longer need an Xbox Live Gold subscription to play online multiplayer free-to-play games such as Fortnite and Warzone. The official announcement was released on the Xbox website and was set to take effect the day of posting.

“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,” the statement said. “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 change applies to all Xbox One and Xbox Series S/X owners. In addition, this update also unlocks the Looking For Groups (LFG) feature, and makes the Xbox party chat available at no cost.

This statement comes as part of a update plan established in late January. After receiving backlash for increasing Gold membership prices, the company apologized, reversed the price hike, and stated, “For free-to-play games, you will no longer need an Xbox Live Gold membership to play those games on Xbox,” adding they were “working hard to deliver this change as soon as possible in the coming months.”

Today, that promise is realized.

Microsoft also released an FAQ to answer more follow up and in depth questions.
