See you in court! NBA 2K18 is the latest game to get an Xbox Live Gold Free Play Days promotion.
To mark this weekend’s NBA finals, 2K Sports’ NBA 2K18 will be free to play on Xbox as part of the latest ‘Xbox Live Gold Free Play Days’. The core game is free to download from today through to 11:59 pm on Sunday, June 10, 2018. You’ll need an Xbox Live Gold subscription to take part, of course.
Throughout the weekend, both the NBA 2K18 Legend,and NBA 2K18 Legend Gold, editions will also be available at a 67% discount via the Microsoft store.
The game’s controversial virtual currency – which can be hard to avoid buying if you want to play the game to the full – will also be receiving a 30% price drop for the duration of the campaign.
All progress and achievements earned during the free play weekend will be saved, and can be carried over if you purchase the full game at a later date.
