If you’ve been around in the 360 days it’s what they called a free Gold weekend. An added bonus for this is access to two games for free. Anyone can download NBA 2K17 and Rocket League for access to the full game until the 19th. Both games are also on sale for 20%-40% off this week if you like them.
