Xbox One as well as Xbox 360 owners can play on Xbox Live without a Gold subscription from June 9th - 12th.

Many times before Microsoft has offered Xbox owners free multiplayer weekends, but this time around the company is including Xbox One as well as Xbox 360 owners.

This means that starting Thursday, June 9th through June 12th, you’ll be able to play your favorite games online with your friends without an Xbox Live Gold subscription.

Of course, this isn’t a big news if you already have a subscription, but it’s a really good offer for those who don’t. During the trial period, Microsoft is even making available Rocket League for Xbox One playable for free.

In addition, starting June 12th through June 22nd, Xbox Live Gold members will get free access to the EA Access Vault. For Xbox One owners, this means that they will be able to play over 20 of the best EA games absolutely free.

EA Access is regularly $5 per month or $30 for an annual subscription, which will get you access to play titles such as Battlefield, Titanfall, Madden NFL 16, FIFA 16, Dead Space and many more.

In the case you decide to take advantage of these offers and after the trial period you get a EA Access subscription, you’ll be able to save your games and pick up where you left off with your new subscription.

Also, on June 13th, Microsoft will be unveiling significant news around Xbox during E3 game conference. Here’s all we are expecting to hear from the company.
