    Why do I still need Xbox live to play free to play games


    Hey, Microsoft literally released a article apologizing for making free to play games like fortnite still needing an Xbox live subscription. That statement was about a few months ago and my Xbox live gold expired the other day. I thought it was okay to play fortnite, apex and stuff but when I went in the game, it needed me to pay for a subscription. Its literally been months and u still have to pay to play online for free to play games

    No Changes to Xbox Live Gold Pricing, Free-to-Play Games to be Unlocked [Update] - Xbox Wire

    were these ppl capping? or is this still a work in process?

    Why we need xbox live for free games?

    I wanna know why xbox is the only platform need xbox live to play free games like fortnite and apex

    but in ps4 or pc they don't need that you can play free games without plus

    I dont get it why we need to pay to play free games??

    I hope they remove xbox live for free games
    This is a common question and every time I'd rather focus the attention on one fact: Xbox Live Gold is not only for gaming. It offers multiple services (with high quality) that everyone uses when connecting to Xbox Live (party, social feature, clubs, LFG,etc).
    That's why MS decided to require a payment for online gaming, even if a game is free-to-play.

    Xbox LIve and Free-To-Play Games

    Hello,

    i am very curious to know why a free to play game like Fortnite and not only this,need a subcribtion of Live Gold to play online.

    It's insane i thing.That's why they are free-to-play because they are FREE.In other ecosystems you don't need any subcribtion.
    you need a live subscription to access the games, so yes you do
