Microsoft is rumored to be testing a new Xbox One feature that may allow some games to be played for free for 24 hours.

The rumors began with a Reddit thread where a Xbox One user, who participates in the company's beta testing for new features, took a screenshot showing the game Max: The Curse of Brotherhood listed in the Games for Gold section with the label "Free Play Day with Gold."

So far, Microsoft has not officially confirmed that this feature is coming to the Xbox One, but a post on their official Xbox Support Twitter account indicated that some type of announcement is forthcoming, saying, "We'll be in touch here shortly."

Microsoft recently announced that the Xbox One would be getting a ton of new features soon, including pre-orders and pre-downloads for select digital games, a new media player with support for a number of file types, and streaming TV shows to mobile devices in select countries. What do you think of Microsoft possibly offering 24 hour free game downloads?
