NBA 2K17 is free to play on Xbox One this weekend

NBA 2K17 will be free-to-play on Xbox One this weekend so long as you have an active Xbox Live Gold membership.

Gold members can download the full game from the Xbox Live Marketplace right now, and it’ll be playable in your library until 8am GMT/3am EST on Monday, November 21.

You’ll have access to the entire game with no limitations, and all your achievements and in-game progress will carry over if you decide to purchase it later down the line.

NBA 2K17 will also be a part of the Xbox Black Friday Sale next week. A specific price is still unconfirmed, but you can find more details over on the Xbox Wire.

We scored NBA 2K17 a globe-trotting 9/10 in our review, praising it as one of the finest sports titles of 2016.

“NBA 2K is still carrying the baton for basketball sims all on its lonesome, and seems to do so effortlessly. If the great NBA 2K vs NBA Live war is ever to return, EA has got a hell of a lot of work to do.”
