Microsoft just made multiplayer free in a bunch of games

Microsoft has been charging for multiplayer through Xbox Live Gold since the days of the Xbox 360, but today it's making a major change to the way that works. Earlier in the year, in response to pushback over a planned Xbox Live Gold price hike, Microsoft announced that not only would Xbox Live Gold subscriptions stay at the same cost, but also that it would start allowing online multiplayer in free-to-play games without an Xbox Live Gold subscription. Today, Microsoft did as it promised, enabling free online multiplayer in a ton of free-to-play games.

The Last Campfire gets the No Man’s Sky treatment with a big, free update

On the heels of the Expeditions update for No Man's Sky - which launched a couple of weeks ago - Hello Games has released a new update for The Last Campfire.

It seems Hello Games is going to continue the trend of releasing big content updates for free, as The Last Campfire received just that today.

Outriders preps in-game freebies as an apology for launch connection issues

Outriders preps in-game freebies as an apology for launch connection issues

It's safe to say that Outriders has suffered something of a rocky launch. While there seems to be a lot of interest in Outriders, there was a bit too much for the game's opening weekend and its first week of availability, with players reporting connection issues that were only recently resolved. No one likes to experience connection issues in games they were looking forward to playing, so as something of an olive branch to a frustrated community, Square Enix has announced that it will be giving all Outriders players a "Community Appreciation Package."
