Xbox announced yesterday that it will be releasing a Netflix style service for games. The program known as Xbox Game Pass will allow subscribers to download direct to their console and play any of the 100 games on the list. The list will also include backwards compatible 360 games as well.
I think we can all agree that the Games with Gold lineup hasn’t been the best lately, but do not fear! This service already has some top titles in it like Halo 5 and NBA 2K17. Subscribers will also be able to purchase any of the games on the list for a discounted price. Occasionally games will cycle out of the listing, and be replaced by new games, so the library will be ever changing.
Phil Spencer, head of Xbox said the following;
“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.”
Not a bad price for the possibility of playing some of the best games the Xbox has to offer. The program will be available to all Xbox Insiders soon, and made available to everyone this spring.
Stay safe out there, and game on!
