Microsoft Unveils $10 Monthly Gaming Subscription Service For Xbox One

Today Microsoft has announced the Xbox Game Pass. Coming this Autumn it will see subscribers have access to over 100 Xbox One and backwards compatible titles for $10.95 per month. 

Unlike Playstation Now, Microsoft has understood the multiple issues internet users face around the globe and the Xbox Game Pass will be a game download subscription, not relying on streaming, much like the EA Access subscription.

Being included in the subscription service are titles from some of the top publishers within the gaming industry. 2K, 505 Games, BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment, Capcom, Codemasters, Deep Silver, Focus Home Interactive, SEGA, SNK CORPORATION, THQ Nordic GmbH, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Microsoft Studios, are on board so a bit of something for everyone there.

Each month new games will cycle into the subscription with some cycling out, giving you a constantly updating library of games. Play one in particular you cannot get enough of, it will be available to purchase at an exclusive discount to Xbox Game Pass members.

Before the program rolls out to the broader community later this spring, Microsoft will be testing Xbox Game Pass with select members of the Xbox Insider Program in the Alpha Preview ring starting today with a very limited number of titles. Xbox Live Gold members will also be receiving exclusive access to Xbox Game Pass prior to the program launching to the broader community. We’ll have more details on timing closer to launch.

Not a bad idea in my book. Cannot wait to get a look at some of the titles on offer. We have reached out for some more info on availability locally and if any pricing has been set, we’ll update you as information becomes available.
