Summer is coming to an end, and you know what that means! The leaves are changing, the air is cooling off, and there's a lot more time to spend indoors playing video games with your friends!

From first-person shooters to racing games, Xbox likely has a stunning new universe to sink your teeth (or controller) into, whether you're a hardcore gamer or just dipping your toes into the world of gaming for the first time. But you'll need an Xbox Live Gold membership if you want to play those titles online, and three-month subscriptions are on sale for $19.99.

Xbox Live Gold gives you the power to play online with your friends, family, and anyone else! Build your own gaming community with this premium live service from Xbox. Gold not only enables online matchmaking, but you'll also receive free games each month and discounts on select Xbox One titles (up to 75% off) in the Xbox Store. This month's free titles include Double Kick HeroesGods Will Fall, and the Valve classic Portal 2, a stunning first-person puzzle game set in a dystopian lab where your only hope for escape lies in your ability to create connecting portals.

When playing on Xbox Live, you'll experience silky smooth gameplay with little latency, thanks to Xbox's ever-growing server army of more than 300,000 servers. Cloud-hosted multiplayer also helps to eliminate lag and cheating while boosting bandwidth for voice communications.

But don't take our word for it. Xbox Live Gold earned 4.7 out of 5 from nearly 85 thousand Amazon customers. Verified buyer Laquisha M. shared, "The discount made it easier for me to purchase for my kids. They love to play online and I love watching them have fun."

So whether you're renewing your subscription or just got your hands on an Xbox Series X|S, it's time to kick back and start gaming more with Gold. You can get 20% off a three-month Xbox Live Gold membership for only $20.
