Xbox Game Pass is Microsoft’s subscription service for Xbox One owners. It’s designed to be like a “Netflix for games,” where you pay a simple monthly rate and get access to loads of games for download. It’s not to be confused with the Xbox Live Gold membership, which gives users a selection of free games each month.
There has been a huge surge in popularity and profile for Xbox Game Pass since its launch, mainly due to the diverse list of games and first-party exclusives on the service. In fact, Microsoft drops new releases from its own internal studios onto the service on day one! That means Xbox gamers can expect to get immediate access to everything released by Xbox Game Studios and Bethesda with a subscription to the service. And now you even get access to titles on EA Play, the third-party publisher’s own on-demand service. Plus, with cloud support, you can stream a selection of Xbox Game Pass titles on mobile devices as well as PC through the Xbox app or your internet browser.
At the moment, you can get an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription for $1 for the first month and $14.99 every month after that. The subscription includes an Xbox Live Gold membership as well as all of the games offered on Xbox Game Pass, PC Game Pass, and Xbox Cloud Gaming.
New games are added each month to Xbox Game Pass. Here are the latest games coming to the service (with descriptions courtesy of the Xbox team):
