Xbox Live Gold members can play FIFA 17 for free this weekend

Xbox Live Gold members will get a chance to hit the pitch this weekend for free in FIFA 17. Starting today, June 1, Gold members can download FIFA 17 and play free through midnight on June 5.

FIFA 17 combines the football action of its predecessors with some new ways to play. The game added a new mode called The Journey, which lets players follow the rise of Alex Hunter, a growing Premier League star.

Along with the free play days, FIFA 17 will also be available at a hefty 50 percent discount on the Xbox Store. Any progress you make over the weekend can then be carried over to the full game if you decide to buy it.
