Xbox Multiplayer All-Access Event Launches This Weekend

This week is all about the fans, as Microsoft has loads of stuff going on.

This weekend, Microsoft is inviting all Xbox Live members to play online with their friends for free on any game they own. The event also has a free weekend for Minecraft.

In addition to this you'll find a very long list of games from the library of backwards compatible games, meaning Xbox 360 games you can play on your Xbox One.

To reap the benefits of the "Multiplayer All-Access" event all you have to do is log in on your Xbox. The company will be hosting a Multiplayer All Access event between May 18-21 which allows players to game with one another as much as they want.

And the news gets even better...

Multiplayer, especially in shooter and sports games, is one of the biggest areas of video gaming.

You can check out the trailer below to get more details about the weekend, as well as seeing more of Minecraft: Xbox One Edition in action, so you can get a pretty good idea of what it's about. That means you get 3 extra months - a $25 value - for free.
