Microsoft Xbox Game Pass brings rotating game list to subscribers

It’s unfortunate that not everyone can fully act on their desires to play great titles because games often times pass the $50 mark in price. However, great news recently surfaced from Microsoft: the company will be bringing a solution that will make playing games a less expensive occupation.

Xbox Game Pass can make a difference

Microsoft announced a new service called the Xbox Game Pass, a monthly subscription service that allows players to play over 100 games from different genres. It was important for the Windows creator to specify that this won’t be a streaming service and that people need to actually download the games.

Games are made available for download to members of the Xbox Game Pass and they are free to explore the plethora of games put at their disposal.

There are many titles to choose from

It is easy to assume this move is just a gimmick and that players will only be getting access to some less than mediocre games. However, it would seem that so far, the list contains some pretty good titles like Halo 5: Guardians or NBA 2K16. If that’s not necessarily their style, users could go for something like Soul Calibur 2 or PayDay 2, each bringing a different flavor to a play session. Microsoft went on to say:

“Today, we’re continuing our commitment to give you more options to diversify and expand your library of games with Xbox Game Pass, a new gaming subscription service coming later this spring. Xbox Game Pass gives you unlimited access to over 100 Xbox One and backward compatible Xbox 360 games — all for $9.99 per month.

With great games from top industry publishers such as 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, there’s something for everyone to enjoy and you will always find something exciting to play across a variety of genres.”

What if subscribers get bored of the list of games offered by Microsoft? Regardless of how cool those games might be, users can only play so much of a title before it becomes rather dull. That problem has been already solved, though: the list of games will change every month.

Promising opportunity

Microsoft intends to rotate numerous games so that the service remains fresh and appealing. In the eventuality that users really enjoy a game and would hate to see it go once the list changes, they can buy it at a discount. This will create a great opportunity for many people to experience and enjoy games that were out of their price ranges before.
