World of Tanks free for all Xbox 360 players this weekend

World of Tanks launched in February on Xbox 360 with its free-to-play label intact, except for that whole Xbox Live Gold caveat that even Wargaming wasn't thrilled with. But at least for this week, everyone will get a chance to play World of Tanks on Xbox 360 for free, with or without a Gold membership.

The free period will begin this Friday, March 28 at 12:01AM PDT and run all the way through Sunday, March 30 at 11:59 PDT. This weekend will coincide with the release of new map, Prokhorovka, which is being issued after players completed the community-wide Map Madness campaign.

Wargaming makes sure to emphasize that this free weekend is free for everyone, even noting that Silver members that have used up their trial period can participate, as well.
