Xbox Live multiplayer is free for everyone to try this weekend

Even if you don't subscribe to Xbox Live gold, Microsoft is giving everyone a chance to try out multiplayer on Xbox Live this weekend. Running through May 21, online multiplayer will be open and available to every Xbox Live member on Xbox One and 360.

If for some reason you don't have any multiplayer games to play, you're covered there as well. Coinciding with the Multiplayer All-Access event, Minecraft: Xbox One Edition will also be free for everyone to check out through May 21. That makes this a good opportunity to get creative and see what all the fuss is about with the sandbox exploration game.

Will you be jumping into some multiplayer matches? Let us know in the comments what you'll be playing this weekend.
