Microsoft announced in February this year that it was going to launch a subscription service for the Xbox One. The service is called Xbox Game Pass and it will provide access to more than 100 games for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 to those who decide to pay $9.99 per month for the service. Microsoft has now confirmed that Xbox Game Pass is going to be launched in June.
Xbox Game Pass is different from Sony’s PlayStation Now game streaming service. Subscribers will actually be able to download the titles that are offered as part of their monthly subscription. They will even be able to buy some of the titles at a discount by virtue of their subscription.
The service’s library includes some great titles initially, including the likes of Halo 5 and Gears of War 3. Microsoft promises that it will continue to expand the Xbox Game Pass library in the months to come.
“Each month, Xbox Game Pass will add a new set of games to the catalog so there is always something new to play across a diversity of experiences, genres, ratings, and more,” it promises.
There’s good news for Xbox Live Gold subscribers. They can get early access to Xbox Game Pass starting today. Microsoft is going to launch Xbox Game Pass for all Xbox owners in June.
