Xbox Announces Game Pass Subscription Service
Coming Soon reports that Microsoft has announced a new subscription service called Xbox Game Pass on their website. It will provide access to multiple games for a monthly fee of $9.99.
In a statement of the official website, Microsoft said: “Today, we’re continuing our commitment to give you more options to diversify and expand your library of games with Xbox Game Pass, a new gaming subscription service coming later this spring. Xbox Game Pass gives you unlimited access to over 100 Xbox One and backward compatible Xbox 360 games – all for $9.99 per month.”
Xbox Game Pass is a download subscription, allowing users to download games to the system and buy them later at a discount of 20% for games or 10% for DLC. Select Xbox Insider members get access starting today while Xbox Live Gold subscribers will get it soon. The full program will be available to everyone this spring.
The statement added: “One of the best things about Xbox Game Pass is that you can discover and download the full titles directly on your Xbox One. That means continuous, full-fidelity gameplay without having to worry about streaming, bandwidth or connectivity issues. In addition, all Xbox One games in the catalog – and related add-ons – will be available to purchase at an exclusive discount for Xbox Game Pass members, so you can make the games you love part of your permanent library to play whenever you want. Every month new games will cycle into the subscription with some cycling out, giving you a constantly-updating library of games. Xbox Game Pass is your ticket to endless play.”
Titles in the announcement include Halo 5: Guardians, Payday 2 NBA 2K16, and SoulCalibur II, with Saints Row IV, Mad Max, NBA 2K16, Terraria, LEGO Batman, Fable III and more.
