Xbox Game Pass Service Begins June 1, 2017

Recommended Videos


Back in March, Microsoft revealed it would be offering a service akin to PlayStation Now called Xbox Game Pass. For a monthly fee, people would be able to download and play over 100 games to their Xbox One. We now know the exact launch date, free trial length, and price across regions. Beginning June 1, 2017, people can pay $9.99/€9.99/£7.99 each month to participate in the program. Before they do, they can see if the service is something they would like with a 14-day free trial.


With the Xbox Game Pass, people are able to download all of the games in the subscription’s library and play them as much as they would like for free. There will supposedly be over 100 games at launch, with new titles being added all the time. After you download a game, you can play it as long as you are subscribed and it is part of the Xbox Game Pass library, and there’s no always online requirement. If you enjoy the game you are playing, you can buy it for 20% off and get 10% off of its DLC.


Some of the titles that will be available when the Xbox Game Pass launches include Halo 5, Mega Man Legacy Collection, Lego Batman, NBA 2K16, Payday 2: Crimewave Edition, Saints Row IV: Re-Elected, and Sega Vintage Collection: Streets of Rage.
