NBA 2K17 free to play on Xbox One this weekend

nba 2k17As if you haven’t already got enough games to play as is, as well as the Black Friday sale just starting, how about some free basketball? This weekend, starting today, you can play NBA 2K17 absolutely free until November 21st.

While basketball would have a bigger following in the US, it’s still a popular sport viewed by many in the UK and Europe, where the likes of football (or soccer, if we’re being internationally correct) is more mainstream. While FIFA and Pro Evolution Soccer dominate on the sports front over here, it’s NBA and Madden which excel over in the west.

So if you have been tempted to try out one of the best basketball franchises in recent years, this is the opportune time for you.

With the release of the new patch 1.05, fans will enjoy many game improvements, updated rosters, and more. A few updates include:

  • 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

All Gamerscore and Achievements earned during this event period are yours to keep, and your save and game data will carry on if you decide to take advantage of the special promotional pricing or buy the game another time down the road.
