All Xbox Live members without a gold membership will be able to play and participate in this event from November 8, which is today, to November 11 on the Xbox One. With PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds rumored to appear on the PlayStation 4 in a few short weeks, having this free to play weekend event is a great way to promote the game for the Xbox platform.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds first appeared on PC but was later ported on the Xbox One as a Game Preview for $29.99. First thought to be a Xbox exclusive, it seems that Microsoft bought a one year exclusivity rights to have the game appear on the Xbox One – that is if the rumored PS4 release is real.
For players who have not played Pro Evolution Soccer 2019, now is the time to give it a try before playing the full game.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 is available now on Xbox One.
