NBA 2K17 free to play this weekend for Xbox Live Gold subscribers

One of the nicer benefits of being an Xbox Live Gold subscriber is periodically having free access to leading titles. This weekend, you'll have a chance to play NBA 2K17 for free on your Xbox One.

The news comes via Xbox Wire, which contains all of the details. Here's what's new in the latest patch, version 1.05:

  • The Cleveland Cavaliers court floor has been updated to match their new 2016-17 design
  • The Golden State Warriors uniforms now have the #42 patch in honor of the late Nate Thurmond
  • Authenticity improvements to a large number of uniforms
  • Post-release shoes will now dynamically appear in your game mode saves when starting a new mode or when using a custom roster created after Oct. 15

Note that you'll be able to hang onto all Gamerscore and Achievements you manage to amass while playing for free. Game saves and data will also carry over to purchased games.

The free play starts at 9am PST on Friday, November 18, 2016. It ends on November 21. So, you'll want to get the game installed and running as quickly as you can if you want to maximize your free playing time.
