Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is free on Xbox One

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is free on Xbox One from October 27 to October 30, it has been announced. The game has been made free for these days so you can get in on an event Xbox Live has underway. During these days, Xbox Live members — including those without a Gold membership — can play during the Multiplayer All-Access event. It is available for both Xbox One and Xbox 360.

This Multiplayer All-Access event gives all Xbox Live members the chance to play with each other regardless of membership type. If you feel like playing Borderlands with your friends but don't have the game, don't fret: that's where the free copy comes into play. It'll only be free until October 30, though.

The game access goes out to all Xbox Live members, again including those who don't have a Gold membership. The game has a four-player split-screen mode, which should help with those local multiplayer events, as well. You can go get the Borderlands game download from the Xbox Store.

Of course, you don't have to play Borderlands during this four-day event if you don't want to. Microsoft makes some other game suggestions, including new titles like FIFA 17 and Battlefield 1, as well as popular titles like Minecraft and GTA Online.
