Mortal Kombat X was one of the most successful installments in the long running franchise, but if you somehow missed out on one of the five million copies shipped -- you can get a taste for blood by playing via Xbox Live weekend for freeeeee!

A download of Mortal Kombat X will usually set you back $19.99, but Free Play Days will give weekend free access to Xbox Live Gold members! The freeplay fun goes from 12:01AM Thursday, March 7th through to 11:59PM Sunday, March 10th!

It's all in the name of getting ready for the release of Mortal Kombat 11! Closed beta begins March 28th if you've pre-ordered for Xbox One or PlayStation 4. Preparing yourself by jumping back to the last game? Revisit the recent past in the Mortal Kombat X forum and put out a call for opponents on the Gameplay & Matchmaking forum!
