Microsoft is expanding its Xbox Game Pass subscription service

The service offers subscribers unlimited access to more than 100 Xbox, Xbox 360 and Xbox One games for £7.99 / $9.99 a month.

These are the best games on PC. According to Greenberg, this isn't the intention as exclusives are being added as a regular part of the Game Pass value.

There are several caveats to be noted.


The first major game to be released on Xbox Game Pass the same day as its regular release will be Sea of Thieves, the much-anticipated open-world pirate game exclusive for Xbox One and PC. Sea of Thieves, which is launching on March 20, will be the first title to receive the new treatment, while the Redmond company has plans to bring its renowned franchises such as Halo, Forza, and Gears of War to Xbox Game Pass subscribers right on the same day of their launch.

As revealed yesterday, the Xbox Game Pass library will expand to include newly released Xbox One exclusives.

Microsoft also announced that six-month subscriptions will soon be available at retailers.


A new update is now out for the Xbox One's operating system that included a couple of changes with Wi-Fi improvements for the Xbox One S and Xbox One X being one of the most notable differences.

Xbox Game Pass is a cool service allowing many Xbox One gamers to play a host of great games for just a small monthly fee.

It would improve on the current Xbox Games Pass lineup, which leans heavily on older titles. By working closely with retail partners, Xbox Game Pass will have valuable ambassadors in popular destinations for gamers to discover new and exciting games and enjoy community.


"We firmly believe Xbox Game Pass will be a catalyst to create new opportunities for game developers and publishers to innovate in the way games are developed and delivered, leading to entirely new ways to play, " Spencer wrote in the post. "We're not announcing anything today other than our biggest games will launch on retail date into Game Pass".
