We know that most of you are patiently waiting for Microsoft to release details of the exciting Xbox Games with Gold September 2014 update, but in the meantime it looks like Microsoft are in secret testing on a potentially massive feature for Xbox Live Gold subscribers.
At the moment, you know that Microsoft are committed to offering two free games on Xbox One, as part of their Games with Gold Program, similarly in the way in which Sony now offer two free PS4 games a month on PS Plus.
Now though, it has been discovered by the community that Microsoft are planning to extend the feature list of Games with Gold. The screenshot which you see below suggests that Microsoft plans to hold events which will allow some Xbox One games to be played for free for 24 hours.
The game in question here is Max: Curse of the Brotherhood which was previously available for free with Games with Gold. However, for those that missed it it’s a great opportunity to try games out before buying them.
Microsoft hasn’t made an official announcement on this new feature which they are calling Xbox Free Play Day with Gold, but we expect them to announce something in the coming hours.
If they are willing to offer the same promotion on bigger games such as Ryse and Forza, it would be a fantastic feature in our opinion and definitely something that would make Sony take note.
Did you also spot this feature on your console in the last 24 hours? Give us your reaction to this and whether you think this is a great idea by Microsoft or not to up the stakes in their battle with Sony’s excellent PS Plus program.
