We’re excited to announce that all Xbox Live Gold members on Xbox One can enjoy NBA 2K17 for free this weekend with Xbox Live Gold’s Free Play Days.

Beginning at 9:00am PST Friday, November 18 through 11:59pm PST Monday, November 21, Gold members in Xbox One markets will get a special opportunity to explore the world of NBA basketball. During this period, you’ll also have the option to purchase the game online from the Xbox Store with a 30 – 40% discount and continue playing.

The NBA 2K franchise continues to stake its claim as the most authentic sports video game with NBA 2K17. As the franchise that “all sports video games should aspire to be” (GamesRadar), NBA 2K17 takes the game to new heights and continues to blur the lines between video game and reality.

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.

You can download NBA 2K17 by clicking on the Gold Member area on the home dashboard or downloading directly from the Xbox store.
