Rocket League will be free to play during the weekend the same time frame. “Need a new Xbox One game to play with your friends for the weekend? Not a problem. Xbox is also giving all Xbox Live members free access to try Rocket League all weekend long,” Microsoft announced. Keep in mind that this is only for a limited time and once it is over only people who have bought Rocket League will be able to keep playing.

To top it off Rocket League will also be 10% off during the event as well. “You will still have the chance to grab Rocket League at a discount of 10% off if you buy it during the extended weekend. It’s our way of saying, ‘thanks for sticking with us’ should you decide to make the plunge.”
