Get online, play your favorite games, yell at (in an encouragingly way) your teammates, and do all that fun stuff you associate with Xbox Live online play. And do it all with a smile on your face because you saved some money.

Xbox Live Gold is the primary way to play multiplayer games online when you're playing games on Xbox. It has been for years of course, but there are new changes coming all the time. One subscription gives you multiplayer access to all of your games, and that includes more than just player-on-player action. Play co-op games with others. Engage in Horde Mode in Gears of War with friends. There's a lot you can do online that isn't just Call of Duty multiplayer.

This subscription is also how you gain access to Xbox Games with Gold, which releases several new games for free every month. There are some great games you can pick up at no cost to you. It's a great way to try some new stuff and branch out a bit from your comfort zone, too. Plus you can get some exclusive discounts on everything from new games to downloadable content.

There have been a lot of changes to Xbox Live Gold recently. One of the biggest changes is that free-to-play games are now free to play online even without Gold. That includes some titles like the new Halo Infinite beta and Smite and some other really popular games.
