One obvious dividing line between Xbox and PlayStation has been the types of games they embrace.
Xbox is big on multiplayer and co-op titles with the social aspect of gaming key to its identity and an arena it can’t be beat in, whilst PlayStation is mostly about its rich narrative-driven single-player titles that win awards.
Well Microsoft is doubling down on its strength today, fulfilling
its promise to ditch Xbox Live Gold subscription requirements for free-to-play multiplayer titles on its consoles.
All players will be able to access online multiplayer for no charge across a range of fifty already free-to-play game titles, including shooter titles like “Fortnite,” “Call of Duty: Warzone,” “Warframe” and “Apex Legends,” RPGs like “Destiny 2,” along with sports breakout hit “Rocket League” and vintage Xbox titles like “Crackdown” and “Too Human”.
In addition to online multiplayer, all players can now access the “Looking for Group” feature with the April 2021 system update in addition to party chat at no cost for all free-to-play games on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One, while Xbox 360 players can only utilize these free party options via the mobile app.
