Xbox Live Online Multiplayer to be Free on Windows 10
Ashley Allen / 3 years ago
Last week’s Microsoft announcement that Xbox Live would be coming to Windows 10 wasn’t quite as clear as it could have been, saying that users would have access to the “vast majority” of Xbox Live services, without specifying what those services might be.
Thankfully, Xbox Director of Programming Larry Hryb has revealed more details through his Twitter account, replying to a surly yet curious user:
@haydencd Not charging. Xbox Live Gold will not be required for online multiplayer gaming using our service on Windows 10 PCs and Phones

Microsoft has said that they will have more news to reveal on the Xbox Live for Windows 10 project over the next few months. Hopefully, the endeavour will be more successful than the aborted Games for Windows Live program that Microsoft tried to launch a decade ago.
