Is the Xbox Live Gold requirement on the way out?

Soon you can play free games without having an Xbox Live Gold subscription, is the requirement for Xbox Live Gold gone completely away?

Microsoft is currently testing the possibility to play free games such as Apex Legends and Fortnite without having to have Xbox Live Gold. They are currently testing this in their Xbox Insider software and the games they are testing this on are:

  • Apex Legends
  • Fortnite
  • Call of Duty: Warzone

In addition to making it possible to play the games online, features like Looking 4 group and Part Chat will also be released, many great features for free that I think many Xbox users will appreciate.

When all users will be able to take part in this is currently unknown, but the Xbox team is usually relatively quick to introduce news that they are working on in the Insider program to all users.
