It is official ladies and gentlemen! Xbox Live Gold Requirement Removed for Free To Play Games is real and you will be able to play your free to play titles like Fortnite, Warzone and Apex Legends online for FREE! Xbox Live Gold is no longer needed for all the free to play titles in the Xbox family of consoles like the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
The news is something a lot of Xbox console players have been waiting for. The online play requirement with Xbox Live Gold, in my opinion, was fine or necessary back in the day. The original Xbox Live Gold was there to help build and maintain a network of servers that allowed us gamers to enjoy security, stability and fun online gameplay with others. If you remember the equivalent PC services for online play when compared to Xbox Live were a joke and then I would of been mind blown and worried a bit if I read this title Xbox Live Gold Requirement Removed for Free To Play Games
Modern Warfare 2 was a great example of how different the quality of online play was between console players on Xbox Live network. The servers were crappy and slow plus full of hackers with no punishment in sight for them. I was in favor of paying for the Xbox Live Gold to play because it came along with some nice discounts for games and specially when games became mostly digital I was all in, but I did see that besides the discounts paying for the online multiplayer felt a bit too much.
I believe Microsoft now is big enough and with Xbox being taken more seriously within Microsoft they don’t really have an excuse for charging for online play besides, maybe, keeping hackers away due to a pay wall and the Gold Deals, but besides those I don’t see why since they are both huge! Microsoft can afford to keep their servers running and running well.
For the payed games like Black Ops Cold War multiplayer and others like Halo Master Chief Collection we still need Gold which is included in the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate bundle and not he $10 a month version of Xbox Game Pass (Xbox Game Pass Ultimate costs $15) it can be frustrating to some, but he value that you get form the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate far surpasses the additional $5 and that is by design.

Microsoft and Xbox want us to go straight to the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate instead of anything else in their offerings since the future of Xbox is not consoles, but Xbox Game Pass itself. They have, like I have been saying for a while now, transcended the console wars and they do not really care if they sell more Xbox consoles than PlayStation Sony sells PS5 since they care that they sell more services or software than PlayStation. Hardware war as to sales Sony so far has won, but the so called console war I think Microsoft with Xbox will eventually be the victor.
I hope Sony with PlayStation manages to stay relevant and strong, because competition is always good and they have created some of the best video game experiences in history. I just worry that in 10 years if something does not change they won’t the power house that they currently are.
