World of Tanks is in open beta this weekend, meaning everyone can pop on and give it a go whether they have Xbox Live Gold or not.
The “one-time event,” is the “last testing phase” before the game is officially released, according to Wargaming.
The tester runs through December 15 and those without a Gold membership will be given a seven-day trial upon going into the beta.
Those who participate in at least 10 matches today, December 14 from 3.00-6.00pm PST will also be handed seven days of Premium Account status for free, which allows the player to earn credits and XP in a faster pace than usual.
Upon the game’s release on Xbox 360, the free Premium status will go live.
