Xbox Game Pass

After extended testing with Xbox Insiders, and an early preview for Xbox Live Gold subscribers, Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass is finally generally available for all. The service, which was originally revealed back in February, brings Xbox One gamers access to a rotating catalog nearly 100 Xbox One and Xbox 360 games for the price of $9.99 a month.

Availability means anyone can sign up for the service, and download and enjoy unlimited access to titles from industry leaders such as 2K, 505 Games, BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment, Capcom, Codemasters, Deep Silver, Focus Home Interactive, SEGA, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Microsoft Studios.

There will be no need to stream these Xbox Game Pass titles, and you will be able to you discover and download the full titles directly on your Xbox One, without any lag while playing. You can even save up to 20% on a game purchase, and 10% on a DLC purchase on Xbox One games if you so happen to like the Xbox Game Pass title you’ve downloaded.

You can head to this page now to sign up or try out the service with a 14-day trial. And, if you own a Windows 10 PC or Tablet, you can also soon use the Xbox App to browse the collection of Xbox Game Pass titles and queue up downloads for your Xbox One (we don’t have this feature working just yet, do you?). Once you’ve signed up, drop us a comment to let us know how the experience is going for you!
