Halo 5: Guardians is getting special treatment this weekend, starting today. Until Sunday, January 14 at 10:59 PM PST, Xbox Live Gold members can download the game and play with no strings attached, absolutely free.
The campaign can be played solo or with three friends via online co-op. On top of this, Xbox Live Gold members can also play online as well in every mode available. This includes the classic slayer mode, capture the flag, infection, and super fiesta to name a few. It also features the new mode called Warzone, allowing players to decide whether to battle it out among themselves as well as enemy AI or to team up and take on the AI together.
This free weekend is an opportunity for Xbox One X owners to check out the enhancements their new console brings to the table with the Overtime update that was announced back in November.
Additionally, for those who enjoy the free weekend with Halo 5: Guardians, the game will be on sale for 20% off during the event. Buying it during the free weekend will save any progress and achievements earned.
To join the free weekend, search for Halo 5: Guardians on the Xbox Dashboard and download it. Halo 5: Guardians is available for free now until January 14 on Xbox One.
