Microsoft seems to be taking a page out of Netflix's book by offering players access to a large library of content for a monthy subscription. Yesterday the company announced the Game Pass: a subscription of £7.99/$9.99 per month that gives players access to over 100 Xbox One and Xbox backwards compatible titles. Players will be able to download the titles and play them while they are available on Game Pass. Additionally, Game Pass holders get a 20% discount when they decide to buy a game from the catalog and a 10% discount on add-ons.
The lineup for the Game Pass given by Xbox is impressive, sporting big titles such as Halo 5, Gears of War: Ultimate edition, Mad Max and SoulCalibur II. New games will be added to the Game Pass lineup every month. How long each game will remain available for Game Pass holders, is unclear, but Microsoft assures us that there is 'always something new to play'. The service can be used alongside Xbox Gold to play the Xbox Game Pass games online, but does not require an Xbox Gold subscription.
The Xbox Game Pass will be released later this spring. Enjoying your Xbox One and want to expand your library or get your Xbox Gold subscription? Take a look at our Xbox products.
