Microsoft’s new subscription service for Xbox owners has now gone live. It’s called Xbox Game Pass and the company previously launched it for Xbox Live Gold subscribers only. Now it is for everyone.
It is a Netflix-style subscription program which gives users access to a large library of games that they can download and play as long as they pay $10 per month for the service. Xbox Game Pass is now live for all Xbox owners. Yay!
Now all Xbox One and Xbox 360 owners can sign up for Xbox Game Pass and will receive a free 14 day trial. For $10 per month, you get access to over 100 games for the console which includes some big ones like Gears of War: Ultimate Edition and Halo 5: Guardians. More will be added over time.
Subscribers get to download the games on the console so those who plan on downloading a lot of games after they pay $10 per month for this service may want to get an external hard drive. Microsoft will continue to add more games to the library every month so that subscribers have plenty. Xbox One owners get 20 percent off on game purchases and 10 percent off on DLCs if they’ve subscribed to Xbox Game Pass and that content is part of the library.
