Additionally, Microsoft said NBA 2K16 will be marked down after the Free Play Days period ends. All of your progress--including achievements--will carry forward, should you decide to buy the game.

NBA 2K16's Xbox one file size is 45.06 GB. Come Thursday, the game will show up in the Gold Members area of the Xbox One dashboard, while you will also be able to find it in the Xbox store like normal.

This isn't the first time NBA 2K16 was made available for free though the Free Play Days program, as it--along with Madden NFL 16--were free for a weekend back in November 2015.
