Xbox One owners and Gold members will be able to get their hands on Forza Motorsport 5 this weekend for free.
The Xbox blog revealed that players will have full access of the game from 12:01 AM PDT on Thursday, September 4th to 11:59 PM PDT on Sunday, September 7th. Everything from achievements to online races will be available.
Forza Motorsport 5 launched last year with Microsoft’s new console and currently has a score of 80 on Metacritic, making it one of the highest rated Xbox One exclusives.
This is a great idea on Microsoft’s part. I think something like this has a better chance at drawing in new players than a vertically sliced demo. I hope Microsoft continues to do this in the future for some of their exclusives.
