Microsoft really know how to pull off a birthday celebration. While Sony are staying relatively quiet on the topic of the PS4’s birthday, Microsoft are offering freebies and gifts to Xbox One owners.
Now, exclusively for Xbox Live Gold subscribers, they’re offering 24 hours of access to Sunset Overdrive. From 12:01 AM Eastern Time (that’s 5:01 AM UK time, so set your alarm clocks) you’ll be able to play the game for free. It’s the full game too, so you’ll collect achievements and progress will even carry over if you decide to buy the game.
If you get far enough in the game, then you’ll even be able to play the excellent 8-player co-operative Chaos Squad mode. Bear in mind, you’ll have to download the game too so your playtime may be cut short depending on the speed of your internet connection.
Let’s hope Sony follow suit – we’re almost a week past the US anniversary of the PS4 launch, and just over a week away from the first birthday of the UK launch. Perhaps even Driveclub’s PlayStation Plus edition?
